Gulf Shores, Ala., Sept. 28, 2021—Saunders Yachtworks, a full-service yacht yard in Gulf Shores, is the first facility in Alabama to earn the Clean and Resilient Marina certification. The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium awarded this designation to Saunders for its use of best management practices to protect and promote clean water and reduce water pollution.
For Saunders, a company-wide commitment to keeping a squeaky-clean boatyard was key to landing this achievement.
“We are honored to be recognized for our efforts in the Clean Marina Program,” Facilities and Safety Manager Greg Lindell said. “The sustainability of our industry relies on the protection of the resources that feed it. We take great pride in maintaining clean facilities and implementing protocols that reduce water pollution.”
