Research and Markets announced the addition of a "Marinas" report to its offerings.
The U.S. marina industry includes about 3,500 commercial marinas, excluding private yacht clubs, with combined annual revenue of about $3 billion. Major companies include Westrec Marinas, Marinas International, Flagship Marinas and California Yacht Marina.
More than 90 percent of marina operators have only one location. Most marinas are privately owned, but some are operated by municipalities or state agencies.
About 40 percent of industry revenue comes from slip and storage fees, 15 percent from maintenance, 10 percent from marine equipment sales, 10 percent from food sales and 10 percent from fuel sales, according to the report.
A typical marina has 50 to 100 slips, but some very large marinas, such as Dana Point Marina in Orange County, Calif., can have more than 1,000.
