NMMA: Boat registrations up slightly

Boat registrations increased 1 percent in 2007 compared to the previous year, according to a recent report from the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

A total of 13 million vessels were registered and/or documented in the U.S. in 2007, compared to 12.9 million in 2006, NMMA said in its 2007 U.S. Recreational Boat Registrations Statistics report.

Florida topped state rankings for registered boats, with nearly 992,000 vessels recorded in 2007. Others in the top 10 were: California, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas, New York, South Carolina, Ohio and Illinois.

On a regional basis, Great Lakes states had the most registered vessels in 2007, while the Inland and South Atlantic regions ranked second and third, respectively. All regions except the North Atlantic posted increases in boat registrations in 2007.

Electronic copies of the study are available at no charge to NMMA members. The price for non-members is $300. Contact NMMA fulfillment coordinator Chris Keil at (312) 946-6209.
