BoatTrader.com represents the largest marine classified site in the U.S., and data for this report is derived from dealers currently advertising on BoatTrader.com.

Pricing inventory more competitively translates into more leads to dealers. When pricing used or new non-current inventory, it is important to know what the local market will support. This real-time data can be used to identify that threshold and adjust pricing on specific models to help move inventory faster. Dealers who utilize business intelligence reporting are more likely to increase their leads and see higher sales.
