AMI offers annual marina survey

The Association of Marina Industries recently released the 2011 Marina Trends Survey Report.

The association said 200 marinas completed the survey, which was issued in November and December 2011. Portions of the final report were revealed at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference in January.

The trends identified in the report include wage rates, recent renovations, capital outlay, environmental actions, occupancy rates and fuel sales. The report includes all U.S. marinas, then regional breakouts.

“Our hope is to continue to run this survey annually and to greatly increase participation so we begin to develop a true sense of the U.S. marina industry overall,” AMI president Jim Frye said in a statement.
