“Following the forecast of the preceding months, the nautical market maintains the 16% drop in the accumulated figure for the year, improving one point on the figure for the previous period (January-September). This situation of stability gives the sector a certain margin to face the effects of the supply crisis that affects with greater incidence the segment of small boats and jet skis,” says Carlos Sanlorenzo, secretary general of ANEN.
In the accumulated figure for the year, Catalonia and the Balearic Islands remain the most prominent areas of Spain in terms of marine leisure activities with market shares of 20.3% and 19.1% respectively.
As for charter, the Balearic Islands continue to lead with a 32% share of the market, and growth in the number of boats registered for charter of 28.9%. Also noteworthy was the increase in the number of boats registered for rent/charter in the coastal territories of Ceuta, Cádiz, Las Palmas, Tarragona and Cantabria.
