The National Marine Manufacturers Association reports that U.S. outboard engine wholesale shipments were up 6.5 percent in August for the NMMA’s control group of manufacturers, which represent 95 percent of the market.

Gains continue to be led by 4-strokes and higher-powered engines, according to the NMMA. Total retail sales were up 0.6 percent (on a rolling 12 month, year-over year basis).

Outboard engine sales are often considered a leading industry indicator because four of five new boats sold are outboard engine-propelled.
