[Longboat Key, FL – June 16, 2014] The Resort at Longboat Key Club is proud to announce that its marina, Longboat Key Club Moorings, has been designated as a Florida Clean Marina for the 12th consecutive year.
Awarded by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the Florida Clean Marina designation is given to select marina’s throughout the state that participate in a voluntary and proactive program that requires marina facilities to adhere to guidelines and best management practices that support environmental stewardship. This highly respected accolade acknowledges that a marina has implemented a set of environmental measures designed to protect Florida’s waterways including maintaining sensitive habitat, waste management, storm water control, spill prevention and emergency preparedness.
Florida has over 1,350 miles of coastline, 50,000 miles of inland and coastal rivers and streams, over 700 freshwater springs and countless lakes. Floridians depend on water more than any other natural resource and it is essential to the success of the state’s $56 billion tourism industry, its $14 billion marine industry and $6.6 billion fishing industry.
“We are honored to be recognized as a Florida Clean Marina, for the 12th consecutive year. This truly reflects our commitment to quality and excellence through the judicial business practices we have put in place for over a decade now. We take stewardship of our island resources very seriously and maintaining the integrity of our unique wildlife areas and keeping our waterways beautiful and healthy is of the utmost importance,” said Dennis Matthews, Director of Marina Operations for Longboat Key Club Moorings.
“The guests and members that enjoy all the amenities here at The Resort and Club take great pride in the fact that we place such a high priority on maintaining a balance between business and environmental sensitivities. As a major activity that contributes so much to our economy, boating and beautiful waterways are a way of life to those of us that call Florida home and for those that choose to spend their vacation and leisure dollars in our destinations. I encourage all marinas and boating based industries to support these state-wide initiatives and I encourage the boating public to make the extra effort to support businesses that embrace this critical and forward thinking philosophy,” said Jeff Mayers, General Manager of the Resort at Longboat Key Club.
Longboat Key Club Moorings is located on the beautiful barrier island of Longboat Key, just off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. Well known for its luxurious exclusivity, pristine setting, seabird rookeries and marine life, the marina is spread over 37 acres. Longboat Key Club Moorings can accommodate yachts up to 150 feet and is located at ICW MM 79.5 by sea or at 2630 Harbourside Drive, Longboat Key, Florida by land.
