Many types of U.S. sellers list new and used-model boats for sale at Boat Trader, ranging from large, multi-office dealers to small shops and private sellers.

In the graphic at left we show the relative size of Boat Trader dealerships by grouping them according to the number of new listings they created in 2016.

In 2016 the 2,325 dealers that are members of Boat Trader created 64,633 listings for new and used models.

A majority — 1,383 dealers — listed fewer than 50 boats; 519 dealers listed between 51 and 100 boats. Listing 101 to 300 boats were 364 dealers, and 59 dealers created new listings for more than 300 boats.

We omitted private sellers who created new listings because most of them list only one, or perhaps two boats for sale in a given year.
