The Association of Marina Industries released its 2014 Marina Trends Survey Report.

Coordinated with Marina Dock Age Magazine, the report is based on an online survey distributed to marinas throughout the country last fall. The survey was completed by 260 marinas that represent 39 states.

Portions of the final report were revealed in an interactive display at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference in Tampa in January and in the December issue of Marina Dock Age.

The trends identified in the report include overall facility information, revenue and expenses, occupancy rates and many comparisons with 2013 figures.

The report is available for purchase through AMI.
