Nautical Tourism Hardback
Nautical tourism encompasses aspects of marine tourism such as sailing, yachting, cruising and diving, as well as harbour-side developments, coastal water sports such as jet skiing, boat shows, port tours, and marine heritage destinations.
Nautical tourism as an industry has been developing rapidly in scope and economic status and continues to do so.
This book provides a timely analysis of nautical tourism in Europe, examining the provision and expansion of nautical tourism in economies at different stages of development.
The book also covers nautical tourism in The Pacific, providing an analysis of two very different markets, and addresses the perceived North American take-over of cruising in Europe to provide insight into the global issues affecting nautical tourism.
The book covers matters of current concern such as the role of nautical tourism in economic growth, sustainable development, international policy, consumer demand and the world market, development strategies, arctic tourism and the future potential of nautical tourism.
Written by an international team of contributors the book also includes fascinating case studies to further explain and explore current concepts in nautical tourism.
