Respondent Profile

The map on this page (Fig. 1A) represents the respondents to the survey by regions. The top five states were Florida (14%), New York (7.9%), Washington (6.6%), Virginia (6.2%) and California (5%). Fig. 1B shows the type of ownership of the facilities that responded. The majority of respondents were family-owned, with corporate or privately owned rounding out the top responses. Boatyard/service center and marina facilities represented the largest majority with 41% (Fig. 1C). Very few respondents identified as either a boatyard/service center with no storage (2%) or a dry storage only facility (1%). Nearly 80% indicated facilities were more than 26 years old, with just 7% indicating that the age of their marina or yard was 10 years or less (Fig. 1D).
