ICOMIA publishes statistic book

The International Council of Marine Industry Associations has released the most recent edition of its Recreational Boating Industry Abstracts. The council said in a statement that its membership represents more than 80 percent of the world’s recreational boating business, so the publication has data covering different segments.
