According to the most recent New Powerboat Registrations Report, the NMMA has reported new powerboat sales are remaining strong throughout 2021. On a rolling 12-month, year-over-year basis, the data shows that retail unit sales were up 32 percent through April. This trend reflects the surge in demand and sales that the marine industry has seen throughout the past year.
“Boating is in demand, and retail unit sales remain elevated coming off of 2020’s record year even as month-to-month sales momentum moderated in April as a result of continued supply shortages; limiting dealers’ ability to restock inventory,” said Vicky Yu, NMMA senior director of business intelligence.
As boating manufacturers continue to work around the clock, wholesale shipments of new boats were down, according to NMMA’s Monthly Shipment Report. “Manufacturers are working around the clock to replenish inventory levels and have shipments currently trending around 10 percent below 2019 levels. Remarkable, given the significant supply chain constraints they are facing, but challenging to meet today’s heightened demand. “ stated Yu.
