Marinas and Boatyards

Marinas and boatyards offer the vital services, ranging from repairs to slips and seasonal storage, that boaters require. Because they're in regular contact with boat owners, these businesses can take the pulse of the recreational boating industry every day. Developments such as new facilities and new services at these sites help to drive the industry forward.

Rebirth for an early ‘destination’ marina

Marinas have life cycles, with ups and downs and, sometimes, an inglorious end. Some tired old facilities just fade away and are torn down, replaced by hotels, condo complexes and the like. Others get a second chance.

Boater demographics, environmental requirements and storm preparations and repairs all affect the business model of today’s marina. Marina owners and managers are in a continuous state of upgrading pilings, addressing new government regulations and assessing the needs of a baby-boomer boating population.
