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.
