Since 1873, Maritime Association of the Port of New York has been the primary voice for the commercial maritime industry for our great Port.

We were initially organized as a Marine Exchange to monitor vessel arrival/departure/berthing information and to share vital information about maritime operations in the port.

While we still perform the functions of a Marine Exchange, our mission has expanded so that we are now the primary advocate for the commercial maritime industry in our port, and also perform as a trade association representing our over 500 paid members to ensure the safety of navigation, the security of marine assets, the sustainability of the marine environment, and the competitiveness of our marine services.
