Six boat manufacturers have joined the ranks of those certified under the National Marine Manufacturers Association's boat/yacht certification program. They are: Calabria, Merced, Calif.; Carolina Skiff, Waycross, Ga.; Nordic Tugs, Burlington, Wash.; Palmer Marine of Washington, Port Orchard, Wash.; Splendor Boats, Silver Lake, Ind.; and Triton Boats, Ashland, Texas.


Certification is an NMMA membership requirement beginning with all products manufactured for model year 2007. To date, 177 NMMA member manufacturers have become certified. An additional 200 manufacturers are undergoing the certification process.


While all boats in the United States must meet applicable Coast Guard regulations, boats built by manufacturers participating in the NMMA Certified program must also meet the more comprehensive standards set by the American Boat and Yacht Council. Boats must also pass rigorous third-party inspection to ensure they meet all applicable standards.
