Ribcraft has received National Marine Manufactures Association
(NMMA) Certification for its professional grade line of recreational boats.
While all boats in the United States must
meet applicable U.S. Coast Guard regulations
, boats built by manufacturers participating in the NMMA Certified program must also meet the more comprehensive standards set by the American Boat and Yacht Council
(ABYC). Furthermore, to become NMMA Certified, a boat must pass rigorous third-party inspection to ensure they meet and adhere to all applicable standards, as well as maintain an ongoing, formal Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) program.
The NMMA Certification program covers more than 30 categories of standards, which vary by boat type and size and may include: fuel systems
; ventilation; passenger and weight capacity; horsepower capacity; flotation; electrical systems
; navigation lights; warning label placement and guidelines; and steering systems.
