AMI verifies six ‘Clean and Resilient’ marinas

The Association of Marina Industries has announced it has accredited the six marinas as Clean & Resilient Marinas: 

  • Miami Beach Marina 
  • Caloosa Cove Marina 
  • Safe Harbor Rockland 
  • Madeline Island Yacht Club 
  • Safe Harbor Great Island  
  • Safe Harbor Sunset Bay 

The managers of each facility participated in a two-day training event to become certified as Clean & Resilient Marina Professionals. The intensive course taught federal regulatory requirements, best management practices, and green techniques for operating a marina that places minimal impact on its natural surroundings and sets itself up to be resilient as the environment changes.  

Upon receiving the CRMP designation, these professionals are eligible to self-certify their marinas as Clean and Resilient. Self-certification involves a lengthy review of all aspects of the marina facility and operations, submission of copies of federally required permits and plans, and a photo inventory of clean practices.  

AMI’s Clean & Resilient Marina accreditation committee reviews applications and accepts certification of those who have complied with the majority of items on the checklist, including all regulations.  

The AMI Clean & Resilient Marina program was started in 2022 to fill the gap to accredit marinas in states that did not have an existing Clean Marina Program or for those marinas wishing to enhance their clean marina status with both AMI’s and its state’s clean marina certifications. Taking the CRMP training is the first step in the process.
