Dealers who want to give feedback on market conditions and retail sentiment are invited to participate in a five-question survey.

This month’s survey, which includes an opportunity to leave comments, allows dealers to weigh in on the fall boat shows.

The Pulse Report — administered in conjunction with Baird Research, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Soundings Trade Only — analyzes such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit.

The report also includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index that provides a glimpse into dealers’ attitudes toward current and future market conditions.

The MRAA and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Trade Only now partners with Baird to participate in distributing the survey and reporting the results.
