THE south east generates a larger boating tourism contribution to the UK economy than any other region, according to a report recently published by the British Marine Federation.

An estimated £724m was generated in the region in 2012/13. It represents almost one-fifth of the national total and accounts for 18,169 full time jobs in the local economy.
