Sea Ray, Bayliner, Chaparral and Yamaha models were the most commonly listed used boats for sale on Boat Trader during the 12-month period that ended March 31.

The same brands were in the top four positions in the previous 12-month period, but the gap between the top two and the next two narrowed from one year to the next. And among the four brands, Yamaha was the only one to have more models listed in the most recent period.

Below the top four, an increased number of Boston Whaler and Cobalt models came on the market during the year. Boston Whaler moved up from seventh to fifth, and Cobalt from 10th to ninth; Sea Doo, Four Winns and Regal each slipped one place.

The total number of Ranger (11th), Tracker (13th) and Bennington (17th) models listed increased, which created movement among brands in the second half of the top 20. Monterey climbed to 20th, displacing Carver.
