This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers if they are allocating more resources to stocking preowned-boat inventory. The survey also examines retail trends, product shortages and overall inventory levels.

Launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research, the survey monitors monthly retail conditions. It includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, which tracks retailer confidence.

Soundings Trade Only partners with Baird to disseminate the survey and report the results.
