According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s New Powerboat Registrations Report, through December 2017, preliminary data shows new registrations saw an increase of 5 percent over 2016.

The following segments led the growth. Cruisers were up 10 percent while pontoons and watersports tow boats had an increase of 7 percent while personal watercraft were up 5 percent. Not surprisingly, the only segment that was down at the end of 2017 was runabouts and that was attributed to the drop in sales of stern-drive powered boats.
