Certified Member of the National Safe Boating Council

Walsh Marine is a proud sponsor of the National Safe Boating Council.

The National Safe Boating Council exists to make recreational boating safer for all who enjoy the waterways. Working together, Walsh Marine and the NSBC can reach State and Federal agencies, recreational boating safety advocates, and thousands of recreational boaters with navigational aids and other safe boating messages.



Walsh Marine recognizes the crucial role manufacturers play when it comes to protecting our environment.

To that end, our products are manufactured through an eco-friendly process that reduces material waste by reusing or recycling as much as possible. And because our Barrier Floats, Regulatory Buoys, Float Collar Buoys Mooring Buoys, and Hanging Message Carriers are ToughSeal™ built, frequency of replacement is reduced.



When durability and performance matter, the difference becomes clear. Walsh Marine’s Regulatory Buoys / Channel Markers, 1428 Float Collar Buoys, Barrier Floats, Mooring Buoys, and Hanging Message Carriers stand the test of time better than the competition.

Durability. Performance. Innovation.

ISO 9001

The ISO 9001 standard is the world’s most widely recognized quality management system (QMS) certification. With more than 1 million companies certified in over 170 countries, ISO 9001 defines requirements for companies who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer requirements and continually improve their business processes. If an organization bills themselves as “ISO 9001 Certified,” this means the organization has met the stringent requirements designated under ISO 9001. ISO 9001 requires organizations to define and follow a quality management system that is both appropriate and effective while also requiring them to identify areas for improvement and take action toward those improvements. As a result, it’s typically understood that an organization claiming ISO 9001 certification is an organization with products and services that meet or exceed manufacturing quality standards.
