Hornet Marine, a Bristol, Conn.-based builder of customizable high-performance powerboats, recently became certified under the National Marine Manufacturers Association's boat certification program.

"Congratulations to Hornet Marine on their achievement of NMMA certification. This is a demonstration of their commitment to product safety by ensuring their boats meet the stringent NMMA certification requirements and applicable [American Boat & Yacht Council] standards," said Robert Newsome, director of engineering standards at the NMMA.

All U.S.-built boats must satisfy Coast Guard regulations. Boats participating in the NMMA certification program also adhere to the more comprehensive standards set by the ABYC. To become NMMA-certified, a boat also must pass third-party inspection.

"Commitment to quality and safety are two of Hornet Marine's founding goals, so earning the 'NMMA-certified' designation is a major achievement for us," Hornet Marine president David Hartmann said in a statement.
