Marine dealers are invited to take a brief, five-question survey to ask about April market conditions.

This month’s survey also asks dealers what development over the past 20 or 30 years has most changed the way they do business?

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

The reports also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers. It provides a glimpse into how dealers feel about 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 its results.
