Since making its first marina investment in 2002, AMP has become a respected leader in this US$37 billion industry. AMP’s focus is on enhancing the boating lifestyle for its customers while building its marina portfolio to take advantage of an extremely favorable supply and demand dynamic. AMP combines professional expertise with a full-service approach to enhancing marina properties and service lines in order to provide their customers with the best boating experience possible. We share our intellectual capital and wealth of experience – in fields such as operations, back office management, financial expertise, sales, marketing and business development - with the objective of adding value to each portfolio investment.
AMP distinguishes itself for its technology, reputation, leadership, and business methodology.
AMP has created a vertically integrated organization focused exclusively on the marine industry. Our current portfolio comprises five marinas encompassing more than 1,600 slips consisting of both wet slips and conventional forklift dry storage slips.
The marina portfolio is operated under two consumer brands. Please click on the links of the left to learn more.
The Marina Market:
The present state of the marina real estate market is creating unparalleled opportunities. Marina slips are a very limited commodity. Ever tightening regulatory and environmental restrictions will inhibit supply growth for the foreseeable future. This traditional imbalance in the supply/demand equation -inherent in the marine industry for decades- was further aggravated over the fast five years as higher density properties (e.g., high-rise residential) replaced marinas at an unprecedented rate.
As a result of our disciplined investment strategy, AMP is uniquely positioned to capitalize upon an impending wave of workouts, foreclosures and potential bankruptcies. AMP’s long term vision allows us to see past the current capital markets turmoil and intends to continue to add to its family of marinas.
