The 2016 Marina Trends Survey is now open and we need your help. The Association of Marina Industries and Marina Dock Age Magazine have partnered to present you this survey.


The survey results will only be meaningful if we get many marinas to take a few minutes to complete the survey. The data you provide will help build a true picture of the industry across the US. 


The survey will remain available until October 21, 2016. It includes about twenty questions designed to be answered with just basic facility operational and financial information.


All participants will receive a free copy of the final report on the survey results and AMI will have the official Marina Trends Report for sale at a nominal fee for anyone else who is interested. 


Portions of the final report will be released in the December issue of Marina DockAge magazine and during the International Marina & Boatyard Conference.




Association of Marina Industries is a non-profit membership organization dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of the marina industry.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works. Plus, when the vessel is moving slowly in fog or while trolling, it can do something a GPS can’t: show the actual heading in real time.
