Dealers are invited to take a five-question survey about May market conditions. This month’s survey also asks whether new-boat sales were affected by the tax overhaul this year.
For example, did customers who were expecting to put their tax refunds toward a new boat disappear when they didn’t get the expected amount? Did larger-than-expected tax refunds increase sales?
The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Soundings Trade Only partners with Baird to distribute the survey and report the results.
The surveys analyze such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. as well as the Marine Retail Sentiment Index.
