FUNDING FOR MARINA PROJECTS
THE MARINA INDUSTRY
The latent demand for marinas worldwide is estimated to be over $24 billion. Of late, the traditional “sun, sea, and sand” tourism model has become saturated and one area identified for specific development is yachting and marina services, a sub-sector that is widely regarded as having significant economic potential, according to the UN. Capital Corp has been involved in providing financing for numerous marina projects over the years and has developed a special expertise in this sector. Our expertise in project funding combined with our knowledge of the marina industry has made us uniquely qualified to provide our clients with the best possible customized funding packages for their marina project, whether standalone or tied to a bigger overall project.
FUNDING A MARINA PROJECT
A great feature in funding marina projects is the fact that:
Traditional funding instruments can and often are used, and
NO special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving a marina, whether it's stand-alone or part of a bigger overall project.
The best case scenario is if you (as project promoter/owner) have a ready list of clients or even pre-sales. Why? Because for investors it is a start to mitigating risk, not to mention that it is also a guaranteed payment on the debt due to the fact that that you have proof that there is not only demand but people are ready to buy (or already have bought); thus, there is a guaranteed income.
THE FUNDING PROCESS
On the business end of a marina project, the promoter/ project owner is required to produce essentially the same basic information and documents as he/she would in any other type of project:
Feasibility Study (if you have it) and/or Environmental Impact Report
Any and all information and documents connected with the technology to be used
What can often be the (only) tricky part of funding a marina project is assessing the technology and building materials that will be used to build it up. But reknown manufacturers do exist and are often favored in these types of deals.
