The Maine Clean Boatyards & Marinas Program added the Maine Yacht Center in Portland to its list of designated Clean Marinas.

"It is such a joy to see this flag flying here at MYC," program manager Susan Swanton said in a statement. "Although this facility is still fairly new, there was still work to be done to achieve the high standards of the program and [Brian Harris, the yacht center's general manager] and everyone here at the marina worked hard to make it happen."

The Maine Clean Boatyards & Marinas Program is sponsored by the Maine Marine Trades Association, with assistance from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Maine Coastal Program.
