A New Trend?

December 2015 News Web Exclusive


Trade Only Today brings word that Westrec Marinas, one of the largest owner operators of marinas and marine-related businesses, nailed a deal to manage two marinas on the west coast of Florida.

Interestingly enough, Westrec’s vice president for development Jim Frye stated these contracts show a new industry trend.

“We’re seeing more investor interest in marinas,” Frye reported. “There’s a ton of equity in the market, and some of it is getting placed in marina properties.” He explained that investors are beginning to regard marinas as long-term investments these days, with the land holding the value but the marina giving the land the attraction in the first place.

“There’s a trend toward this boutique investment in marina space that is good for the overall health of the marinas,” Frye says.
