The Legislature has not enacted incentives specifically designed to assist Florida’s marine industries. However, Enterprise Florida, Inc., has taken some steps to help retain and expand state marine industry businesses by designating a staff person to serve as a liaison to the marine industry; seeking to develop partnerships with state marine industry associations; and assisting Florida’s boat manufacturers and dealers by hosting pavilions at boat shows in Dubai, Germany, and Russia where exhibitors marketed their products to potential buyers.
