    MARINE PROJECT AT EVENTS & BOAT SHOWS

    Hurricane Ian makes devastating blow to America’s top boating market

    Hurricane Ian made landfall on Wednesday, Sept. 28 in southwestern Florida from Tampa to Naples, Bonita Springs, Sanibel Island, and Fort Myers, making its way inland to Orlando before heading up Florida to North Carolina. When Ian arrived in southwest Florida, it was a category 4 hurricane, decimating homes, businesses, roads and marine infrastructure.

    Reports show Florida was impacted most significantly, a state that ranks number one in the country for boat registrations with nearly 1 million boats, as well as for annual sales of boats, marine engines and accessories, reaching $5.4 billion in 2021, the highest level on record, according to NMMA’s annual Statistical Abstract. As of Sunday evening, many in southwest Florida and other regions remained without power or clean drinking water. The priority remains ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those impacted.

    The images coming in from Southwest Florida reveal extensive devastation and what state officials have described as ‘life altering impacts’ from which some communities may never recover.

    Most boat owners have insurance for their boats, and could conceivably rebuy when they are back on their feet. But the stark reality is that as many as 80% of Florida home owners do not have flood insurance, so their priorities are going to be on life’s essentials for a long time to come.

    Brunswick Corporation and MarineMax – two of the leading marine companies in the US and worldwide – have extensive operations in Florida. Brunswick said it has about 3,300 employees in the state working for the various businesses based there including Mercury, Land N Sea, Freedom Boat Club, the Boat Group and the Navico Group, as well as dozens of Freedom Boat Club operations.

    Boat and yacht retail giant MarineMax, also a key distribution partner for Brunswick brands as well as numerous imported brands – including Azimut-Benetti, Galeon and Ocean Alexander – is headquartered in Clearwater, Florida (in the Tampa area), with five operations in the coastal stretch between Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Haze, Venice and Sarasota. Although there is no official news from either company yet, IBI understands both have suffered damage at their businesses in the region.

    That does not take account of locations for both companies in other parts of the state which Hurricane Ian also battered, nor the businesses in the Carolinas which experienced a second landfall of Hurricane Ian as it diminished to a tropical storm – but still generated heavy wind, rain and flood waters.

    It is still far too early to estimate the economic toll of the damage caused by Ian, but federal officials are now predicting it will be the worst hurricane to hit the US with early estimates suggesting losses amounting to some $47 billion.
