U.S. outboard engine wholesale shipments were up 5 percent year over year in February on a rolling 12-month basis.

That was for the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s control group of manufacturers, which represent 95 percent of the market.

The NMMA said gains were led by four-strokes and higher-powered engines.

Total retail sales based on warranty card registrations for the same period were up 7.3 percent.
