Dealer sentiment has been up and down in the past several months.

A new survey is asking marine dealers to weigh in on November market conditions and provide feedback on retail growth projections for 2021.

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 and MRAA to help distribute the survey and report the results.

The survey also analyzes data points including new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. It includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for dealers.
