Abstract: This paper presents the results of a survey of visiting boats to Irish marinas. Ireland’s coast offers pristine waters and excellent sailing, which attracts many domestic and foreign boat owners to Irish marinas. A total of 82 visiting boats completed the survey. Questions were asked about the individuals on board each boat, the visitors experience in and around the marinas visited, the spend per boat per visit was €1883.69. In addition to this, it was found that the average spend per person per boat excluding children was €539.42 and the average spend per person including children was €513.73. Marina operators also completed a separate short survey the results of which are reported here as well.
