Every technological advancement or invention is always connected with the advantages for one group, and disadvantages for the rest. Let’s consider the easiest example – ecologic cars. The more attention some people pay to reducing cars’ fuel consumption, the worse it is to fuel stations’ owners. A lot of people could benefit from less pollution, more pleasant atmosphere, cleaner air, so on and so forth. On the other hand, usual people have to pay higher taxes for their cars, have to pay more for each gallon of oil, and – additionally – they are commonly thought to be “environment wasters”. So what do people think about boat shipping market which becomes more and more important aspect in worldwide tourism? The opinion are twofold.
At first, a lot of people consider boat shipping a good and relatively inexpensive way for transporting boats, yachts, vessels, and other items like that. It lets boat owners see something more than just a small range of the water area their boat has been launched at. Additionally, it allows the owners of tourist objects placed somewhere far away benefit from the higher number of visiting tourists. But…
The problem about boat shipping is that people who travel with their boats usually don’t stay at hotels. They don’t eat at restaurants or spend a lot of time thousand miles from any point they could spend some money at. Of course, that is not one of these things which tourist objects owners could be satisfied with. However, the tourists going to spend whole their trip on a yacht basically is exceptions. Apparently, most of people consider sailing just an additional attraction to their trip.
They don’t want to spend the whole time on a board, they want also to see something interesting, experience exotic cuisine and – what it’s connected with – spend quite a lot of money abroad. Thereupon, shipping in a way it looks now should rather be considered a chance for worldwide tourism, a chance for tourist objects owners, and quite a good chance to convince people to spending more money on their holidays. From many points of view, these are only the benefits and advantages.
