The global boating market grew in 2015

Nautica Italiana used the recent Cannes Yachting Festival to announce the results of a comprehensive study into the global boating market. The research, which was prepared by Deloitte, found that the industry had a total value of €19billion at the end of 2015, up 11.8% on the €17billion figure estimated for 2014.

Tommaso Nastasi, yachting industry expert at Deloitte Financial Advisory Italy, said: “The pleasure boat market is recovering after the past few years of crisis. The challenge is to widen the geographical areas of end customers.”

Other key findings included a total market value of €14billion for the pre-owned market and €1billion for the charter market. When broken down geographically, the USA was found to be the largest contributor, with a 42.8% market share, compared with 10% for the Italy and 6.9% for the UK.

Notable yachts launched in Italy this year include the 70 metre Perini Navi sloop Sybaris (pictured above), which is one of the largest sailing yachts in the world.
