BUYING A MARINA
Buyers are drawn to the marina industry for a variety of reasons. Some are seasoned real estate investors looking to capitalize on the potential for increased cash flow and appreciation in an industry with high barriers to entry for newly developed competition. Others are experienced marine professionals making the transition from employee to owner. Some are “Lifestyle Buyers”, interested in the lure of working at something they love. Many are existing marina owners who can benefit from the economies of scale derived from operation multiple locations.
