Wet weather dampens boat-sales projections

A near record-wet June for states east of the Mississippi River is leading two Wells Fargo analysts to drop their projections for 2013 boat sales by about half, from a projected 5 percent increase from 2012 sales to a 2.5 or 3 percent increase. Statistical Surveys’ report that sales in the industry’s main powerboat segments…more

Boat sales mixed in June

When boat sales rebounded in May, some industry observers hoped it was a sign of a late-blooming spring selling season that would extend into early summer. From that perspective, the mixed June results that Statistical Surveys reported today were disappointing. Sales in the main powerboat segments rose a modest 1.8 percent, or 173 boats, to…more

Boat sales show gains in May

Sales of recreational boats ended three months of declines in May, enabling the industry to avoid the disappointment of a spring selling season that did not include a single month of industrywide gains.

Boat sales cool as spring fails to warm up

An unseasonably cool spring in the northern United States is being blamed for lagging boat sales. During conference calls with analysts last week, Brunswick CEO Dustan McCoy and MarineMax CEO Bill McGill each cited unseasonably cool weather for a dip in quarterly sales compared to last year, which brought a warmer-than-usual spring to much of…more

Boat sales drop for second straight month

The recreational boating industry’s growth engines sputtered in March amid inclement early spring weather as overall sales dropped for the second month in a row after a year of recovery and consistent gains. Sales of aluminum pontoon boats rose just 1.3 percent, or 18, to 1,386 from the same month last year in early reporting…more
