AMI releases annual marina trends survey

The Association of Marina Industries released its 2013 Marina Trends Survey Report.

Coordinated with Marina Dock Age Magazine, the report is based on an online survey that was distributed to marinas throughout the country last fall.

The survey was completed by 260 marinas in 39 states. Portions of the final report were revealed in an interactive display at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference in Fort Lauderdale in January and in the December issue of Marina Dock Age.

The report identifies trends that include overall facility information, revenue and expenses, occupancy rates and many comparisons with 2012 figures.

The cost of the survey is $25 for AMI members and $45 for non-members.
