The National Marine Manufacturers Association’s new data reports that powerboat retail sales are up 8 percent year-to-date. The sale of PWCs and pontoons were up 2 and 9 percent compared to a year ago. Saltwater fishing boats, yachts and cruisers sales saw an even larger increase ranging from 11 to 15 percent. In August the report shows powerboat sales slowed. Compared to all major year-to-date categories sales are still strong. 82 percent of dealers said new-boat inventory was too low, according to September’s Pulse Report Survey, and it was suggested that the slight decrease in powerboat sales in August was caused by the lack of inventory. Year-over-year the industry is up 14.2 percent as a whole.
