Historic Vessels - impact on the National Economy questionnaire
9 November 2009
National Historic Ships is undertaking quantitative research to analyse the contribution historic vessels make to the UK's economy on an annual basis. We have compiled a questionnaire (see below) and need your help in completing this survey, the results of which will be used to illustrate the significance of our sector and raise the profile of maritime heritage. We will be looking at the impact of historic vessels on the nation's employment figures, tourism and on the development of traditional skills and services.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire below, which you can submit online, or print out and post back to us if you prefer. We welcome completed forms from any historic vessel owner, whether the vessel is privately or commercially owned, part of a trust or a major organisation. If your vessel is not on the National Register of Historic Vessels or the National Small Boat Register, but is traditionally built or contributes to the maritime heritage sector, we would still like to have your response.
The compilation of this research is a key way in which we can demonstrate the importance of historic ships and gain recognition for these unique vessels, so your support is much appreciated.
