Positive signs for Williams

Figures released at the London Boat Show suggest the recovery is well underway in the marine sector.

Companies surveyed just before the Show said exports rose by 7.7 percent over the last financial year. Overall, sales are up by 1.7 percent. And export order books are looking healthy for 2014.

According to the British Marine Federation research the leisure marine industry is worth almost £3 billion to the UK economy each year (£2.905 billion). The sector employs 31,000 people.
