The planning and design of a marina involves decision making to optimize the economic return of the entire project. Decisions relating to land-use, water-use, and construction require comparison of potential land and water asset values and construction costs to estimate economic return. A trade-off analysis can identify sensitivity of economic returns for alternatives and put them in perspective. A methodology is presented which facilitates optimization of design and evaluation of alternatives in an objective and consistent manner.
