The Personal Watercraft Industry Association (PWIA) was founded in 1987 to represent U.S. personal watercraft (PWC) manufacturers and to promote the safe, responsible operation of the vessels. PWIA provides a unified voice for the segment, representing the interests of PWC manufacturers in legislative and regulatory concerns.
Our mission is simple: to ensure the fair treatment of PWC manufacturers and operators when local, state and federal government officials consider boating regulations. We support and advocate for reasonable regulations, strong enforcement of boating and navigation laws, and mandatory boating safety education for all PWC operators.
PWIA advocates safety and encourages all riders to commit to a safe, responsible and fun season on the water by signing the PWIA Safe Rider Pledge
PWIA membership is open to all PWC manufacturers who are current members of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).
