AMI Accredits Yarmouth Boat Yard as a Clean & Resilient Marina 

The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) has accredited Yarmouth Boat Yard as a Clean & Resilient Marina. To earn this certification, managers of the facility had to participate in an intensive 2-day training event to learn federal regulatory requirements, best management practices, and green techniques for operating a marina that places minimal impact on its natural surroundings. They then had to review all aspects of their marina facility operations to ensure adherence to the strict guidelines and submit copies of federally required permits and plans along with photo proof of all the essential clean marina practices.

AMI’s Clean & Resilient Marina accreditation committee then reviews the submitted materials and accepts verification of those who have complied with all the designated requirements and regulations. 

“Earning this certification was important to us,” noted Steve Arnold, owner of Yarmouth Boat Yard, a Marina Holdings company. “It helps ensure that our waterways are clean and safe for boaters to enjoy.”
