Uni Student in Need of Help

Hello All,

My name is James, and I'm a Uni student doing a summer project with the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

I've posted in a few other forums as well, and I'm hoping to get as many responses as possible.

My team's project involves researching marketing and promotional strategies for boatyards in various locations of Europe.

So far we've uncovered that one of the most effective methods for cruisers to find boatyards is by word of mouth--just talking with knowledgeable contacts.

Can anyone here confirm this idea? Do you have any personal stories about finding a specific boatyard in a certain location? What would make you recommend one boatyard over another to a friend?

Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated and go a long way in my research. Thanks!

First define what you mean by boatyard, then you need to consider whether you are looking in your own normal cruising area, a fresh area, one well covered by pilot books cruising forums, C-Map data etc etc
