Has weather affected 2019 sales?

pulse ping 3

Marine dealers are invited to take a brief, five-question survey to provide feedback about June market conditions.

This month’s survey also asks marine dealers whether they think new boat sales were affected by weather during the first two quarters of the year. Dealers have the opportunity to provide different answers for the first (January-March) quarter and the second (April-June) quarter

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Trade Only partners with Baird to participate in distributing the survey and reporting its results.

The surveys analyze industry data points such as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. They also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers.
