It also requires that managers have to recruit, train and retain high caliber staff that will provide exceptional customer service, while maintaining emergency management plans, and keeping environmental compliance up to date.


Perhaps the most critical task a marina operator faces is coming up with profitable ways to fill slips and moorings, while keeping the marina clean, safe, and attractive........
