About Us: Steering the Course of
Connecticut's Maritime Industry Cluster

Launched in 2000, the Connecticut Maritime Coalition is a non-profit trade association facilitating the competitiveness of Connecticut's maritime industries.

Our cluster network is mostly composed of small and medium-sized business.

Together, our group has reached a consensus on the issues facing the maritime industries in Connecticut and an approach to solve these issues.

But it takes many projects, partners and resources to stimulate change. Our goal is to serve as the linchpin between maritime businesses and policy makers.
