Trade Only invites dealers to take April survey

Dealers that want to give feedback on market conditions and sentiment are invited to participate in a five-question survey.

The Pulse Report — administered in conjunction with Baird Research, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Trade Only Today — analyzes such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit.

The report also includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index that gauges how dealers feel about current and future market conditions.

Each month the fifth question changes based on current trends and conditions.

The MRAA and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Trade Only partners with Baird to participate in distributing the survey and reporting its results.
