Has weather affected 2019 sales?

Publish date:

Dealers are invited to take a five-question survey to provide feedback about June market conditions. This month’s survey asks dealers whether they believe new-boat sales were affected by weather during the first two quarters of the year.

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. They also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers.
