Marine retailers are being asked to weigh in on October market conditions in a new survey, and look ahead to what they see as the largest challenge in the year ahead.
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.
