Newmarks Yacht Centre and Clean Marina
Marinas and boaters alike recognize the importance of running a Clean and Green Marina. Newmarks Yacht Centre, in the Port of Los Angeles, is proud to be listed as a marina able to meet the high standards required to environmentally protect our waters and their facilities.
Clean Marina is an organization dedicated to this environmental goal and has developed a program for marinas who are committed to pollution control.
A team of professionals from Clean Marina,working in conjunction with the Marina Recreation Association, is assigned to review marinas interested in the program. This team reviews and scores each marina, using the following categories, on their ability to comply with Clean Marina‘s best practices. It is only after certain criteria is met that a marina can be certified as a Clean Marina.
Newmarks Yacht Centre has undergone this process with the help of Clean Marina and works year-round to ensure safety and a clean environment for its boaters.
