Dealers are uniquely challenged when ordering boats for the upcoming season, in light of a pandemic that crippled manufacturing followed by a surge in new- and used-boat demand.

The monthly Pulse Report survey asks marine retailers to give feedback on how they’ll stock showrooms for the duration of the summer and spring of 2021.

The five-question survey was launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research in 2013 to gauge retail conditions on a monthly basis.

Trade Only Today partnered with Baird to help distribute the survey and report its results.

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