Allied Marine teams with Coast Guard Auxiliary in Florida

Publish date:

Allied Marine Brokerage & Charter said its Stuart, Fla., office is partnering with Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 59 and the auxiliary’s Recreational Boating Safety Visitation Program to promote boating safety in area waters.

Coast Guard Auxiliary 56, which is also based in Stuart, announced the partnership and presented Allied Marine president Jon Burkard and his staff with an award at a ceremony at Allied Marine’s marina on Sept. 29.

Together, Allied Marine, a division of Ferretti Group America, and Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 59 provide the boating public with safety information, up-to-date federal, state, and local requirements and schedules for local boating safety courses and vessel safety checks that the Coast Guard Auxiliary provides.

Among the things boaters need to know is that a 2011 state law requires operators who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1998, to have completed a boating education course and to carry their Florida boating safety education identification card when operating a vessel in Florida waters.
