The numbers are for the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s control group of manufacturers, which represent 95 percent of the market.

Gains continue to be led by four-strokes and higher-powered engines, according to the NMMA.

Total retail sales based on warranty card registrations were up 13.6 percent on a rolling year-over-year basis.
