The Cornwall marine sector has seen a very busy 2023 across all sub-sectors, despite the economic challenges.
For 2024, optimism is increasing with significant growth for specialist boat builders and manufacturers, the wider blue and green agenda, future fuels including hybrid options and hydrogen, aquaculture, ocean health and well-being. This is all in addition to a busy tourism season to support marine leisure, the further development of new green marine skills, together with the move towards maritime Net Zero and clean maritime.
CMN membership is increasing as we see new members becoming engaged in innovation in the new sub-sectors that are emerging.
Significantly, CMN will be supporting MOR Group members to strengthen the supply chain offer to the emerging Floating Offshore Wind (FLOW) market, and working closely with local partners to scope out the workforce development needs of Cornwall and the South West to support direct investment in the skills of tomorrow.
CMN has now completed 20 years of providing members with support to achieve sustainable growth, increased productivity, improved skills and bringing innovation to market. Our expert team can help you make valuable connections to drive business collaboration and improve workforce skills as you seek to grow your business.
At this time of year, we take time to reflect upon the good things we have… like our wonderful members, partners and stakeholders. We appreciate working with you and hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you good health, happiness and success.
Each year we make donations to local marine charities. This year we have decided to share the donations with Sailability; the Cornish Maritime Trust, The Wave Project, and the RNLI.
This continues our support for engaging young people and people with a disability, supporting safety at sea and maintaining maritime sailing heritage.
Our offices will be closed between 22nd December 2023 and 2nd January 2024.
Wishing you all good health and a joyful and restful holiday period from all at Team CMN.
