The Survey Says…

1_March Pulse Report

This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers about retail trends, product shortages and overall inventory levels as the traditional boating season approaches.

The survey also asks dealers to rate the impact of retail trends on inventory of new and used boats, availability of parts and accessories, trade-in activity and governmental action.

Launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research, the survey gauges monthly retail conditions. Soundings Trade Only teamed with Baird to disseminate the survey and report the results.
