Benefits of CRM Accreditation

Being a certified clean & resilient marina lets your customers, staff, peers, and even regulators know that you run an eco-friendly and sustainable operation and are a true steward of the environment. 

There are some real benefits of being a clean marina
  • Boaters are attracted to marinas that practice good environmental stewardship and may be willing to pay more to keep their boat at a certified clean marina.
  • The federal Boating Infrastructure Grant Program gives those applying for funding points for being a certified clean marina.
  • Some insurance companies have been known to offer a reduced rate on environmental liability coverage for clean marinas. 
  • Often, potential marina buyers are more likely to consider a certified clean marina.
  • Some states offer clean marinas discounts on submerged land leases.
