Our annual rundown of the most commonly listed brands of boats on BoatTrader shows perennial market leader Sea Ray with the most listings again this year by more than a 3-to-1 margin over Bayliner.

The other brands in the top five — Chaparral, Yamaha and Boston Whaler — remained in the same order as a year earlier.

Virtually all brands in the top 20 were represented on the website by an increasing number of listings, but some, such as Grady-White, Cobalt and Regal, made faster gains and moved up in the rankings. Sea-Doo, and to a lesser extent Four Winns, showed slower growth.

In the lower half of the top 20 Malibu and MasterCraft made the largest gains. Despite an increase of 33 boats, Crownline dropped four positions, to 16th. In the next issue we’ll look at the most-viewed brands.
