New and used inventory has been so scarce that dealers have had a difficult time meeting ongoing demand.

This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers whether they will attend to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show or another local show this fall, and asks what retailers are doing as an alternative if they are not attending.

2-pulse2 August Used Boat Inventory-3

The five-question survey was launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research in 2013 to take gauge retail conditions on a monthly basis. Soundings Trade Only partnered with Baird to help distribute the survey and report the results.

The survey also analyzes such data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. It includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for dealers.
