The Cape Fear Marina/Bennett Brothers Yachts in Wilmington was recently certified as a North Carolina Clean Marina.

The Clean Marina program is designed to show that marina operators can help protect the environment by using management and operations techniques that go above and beyond regulatory requirements.

Clean Marina is a nationwide program developed by the National Marine Environmental Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to clean up waterways for better recreational boating. The foundation encourages states to adapt Clean Marina principles to fit their own needs.

The North Carolina Clean Marina program is a partnership between Marine Trades Services, the N.C. Marine Trade Association, the Division of Coastal Management, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and N.C. Big Sweep.
