U.S. outboard engine wholesale shipments were up 3.7 percent year over year for the 12 months that ended in July.

That number counts 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 10.3 percent on a rolling 12-month basis, year over year.
