On a rolling 12-month basis, U.S. outboard engine wholesale shipments were up 3.1 percent year-over-year through January.

That figure is for the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s control group of manufacturers, which the NMMA said represents 95 percent of the market.

Gains were led by four-strokes and higher-powered engines.

Total retail sales, based on warranty card registrations for the same period, were up 7.7 percent, according to the NMMA.
