NMMA reports unchanged wholesale shipments in March

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said traditional powerboat wholesale shipments for its control group of manufacturers were relatively unchanged in March after dipping in February.

The NMMA said the development probably reflects the particularly cold winter that the country experienced. Previously, shipments had been growing for seven consecutive months.

For the first quarter, shipments were up 0.3 percent year over year.
