Marinas: A US Market Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
Marina development is closely linked to regional tourism industry. Growing interest in nautical tourism and trends in the yachting industry significantly affect the prospects of marina industry. The demand for marina facilities/berths and services is also dependent on the rise in the ownership and sales of sailboats or powerboats. The strength of the industry is determined by several factors such as rental charges, occupancy rates, and level of competition in the market.
Rising income levels, availability of leisure time, and increased preference for water-based leisure activities are driving the demand for marina berths in the United States, as stated by the new market research report on marinas. Rise in the production of recreational yachts and boats and their growing affordability also enhances the demand for marinas among American consumers. With affluent consumers exhibiting marked preference for large boats, marinas are focusing efforts on modernizing and expanding existing infrastructure facilities so as to provide mooring facilities for larger vessels. Despite the continuous rise in demand for marina berths, shortage of mooring facilities and docking spaces, pollution, and weed growth hamper the market's expansion.
Key players profiled in the report include California Yacht Marina, Flagship Marinas Inc., Seven Kings Holdings Inc., Skipper Marine Development, Vinings Marine Group LLC, and Westrec Marinas.
