Boat Trader displays listings for nearly 60,000 used boats for sale at any given time, but during the 12-month period that ended March 31, more than 100,000 boats were offered for purchase.

Sea Ray, Bayliner, Chaparral and Four Winns were the most commonly listed brands during the past year, and most of those in the top 10 this year were there a year ago, as well. The only brand to move into the top 10 from the previous 12-month period was MasterCraft, perhaps an indication of the recent strength of the towboat market.

Nearly all brands in the top 20 had an increase in the number of boats listed for sale. The only exception was Wellcraft, which had 75 fewer listings and dropped from eighth to 13th. Sea-Doo and Malibu moved up in the rankings, and Bennington was the only brand new to the top 20, replacing Maxum, which slipped from 18th to 24th.
