We regularly travel to marinas and yachting hubs all over the world, which presents us with a clear picture of how the global marina market is developing and expanding. This insight enables us to innovate and build-in USPs into our marina designs, whilst ensuring the marina is able to accommodate the yachts of tomorrow in an ever-changing marketplace.
— James Beaver, Director
The global yacht market is recovering well and getting back on form. With a great deal of positivity surrounding the future of yachting, it is clear to see the market has greater stability, that it is better understood and growth is returning. Old business models are being dispensed with, as marinas offer a better product and become more resort orientated. Most developers are now more cautious and mindful to seek sound advice. Future-proofing a new or existing marina is absolutely essential as the marina industry becomes more competitive, with new locations opening up the market.
