PRODUCTS & SERVICES Australian survey data released The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has announced the release of the Club Marine 2015 Health of the Australian Marina Industry Survey. The survey of Australian marinas builds on previous data released in 2009, 2011 and 2013. The collaborative research is a result of a unique long term partnership between the Recreational Marine Research Center (RMRC) at Michigan State University, USA and the MIA, with the active participation of many Australian marinas. The survey provides extensive data and analysis based on a robust 40% sample of Australia’s 346 marinas. The information in the 127 page report provides details relating to the economic, social and environmental performance of marinas in general, marinas located in different regions, as well as different types and sizes of marina. It also provides valuable trend data and analysis. Findings reveal that Australian marinas are financially healthy and over half of the marinas expect revenues to grow in the 2015/16 financial year. The majority of marinas continue to undertake various measures to enhance their facilities and the quality of the service(s) offered. The findings also strongly suggest that there continues to be ‘demand’ for marinas to add storage spaces and customer services. Ed Mahoney, director of the RMRC, claims that the Australian series of collaborative studies is a ‘cut above’ anything else conducted within the international marina industry. “The very high response rate and consistency of the data collected on biennial surveys provides valid and reliable data for identifying marina trends including employment, investment and their contribution to local communities,” he says. MIA president, Andrew Chapman CMM, said the long term collaboration with RMRC and the support of Club Marine were invaluable. “Our industry is competing for limited time and capital with many other leisure industries. High quality research is a foundation stone for our industry to effectively communicate our value and worth to investors, the community and to government,” he continued. Findings from the survey will be announced progressively. The report is available free of charge to participating marinas and may be purchased from the MIA via Quantum installed at Haslar Haslar Marina in Portsmouth, the largest marina in Dean & Reddyhoff’s portfolio, has become the first in the UK to install Rolec’s new Quantum service pedestals. The company ordered 150 anodised aluminium pedestals as part of a £1.5 million refurbishment project. The Quantum, launched last year, was designed using marina operator feedback as Rolec sales director Martin Georgeson confirms. “During the development of Quantum, we undertook a feasibility study with many of the UK’s leading marina managers to get a feel for what they considered to be the perfect service pedestal,” he says. “As a result, Quantum, with its clean, sleek lines, was developed to incorporate a variety of key features – including customised sizes and colours, anodised aluminium exterior finish, LED lighting, anti-light polluting louvres, IP65 rated weather proofing and internal electric/water segregation.” In addition to supplying the pedestals, Rolec undertook the design and installation of Haslar’s new electrical distribution system, water system, marina lighting and emergency services. Haslar marina manager Ben Lippiett says the marina is thrilled to be rolling out the Quantum pedestals. “They are well built and look superb on the marina,” he notes.
