What's in that little house down at the waterfront? That little structure houses our waste water filtration system! In an effort to comply with local, state & federal regulations we have worked with environmental consulting firm EBI to develop the first reliable closed loop water filtration system in the Newburyport area.

"What does that mean?" Well, as we wash your boat the dirty water is collected in our concrete collection apron. The water is then pumped from the trench into a chemical reactor tank. After mixing with the treatment chemicals the dirty water & remaining solids are pumped & filtered into a holding tank where the now clean water is stored for future pressure washing.


With more than 50 years in the marine industry, we are proud to do our part in keeping the Merrimack River clean for our Merri-Mar family & the surrounding communities!

Merri-Mar Yacht Basin Case Study


Since 2007 Merri-mar has been using the above closed loop waste water filtration system,  and we are very pleased not only with the results, but the support & feedback we are continually receiving from our customers! Similarly we are requiring our yard customers to use a "dustless vacuum sanding system" when working on their boats in our yard, which we feel is important for the environment and fellow boaters. We have dustless vacuum sanders available to our customers for rent, by the day or 1/2 day as needed.

Please come by to see us, so we can discuss your needs.
