Canada saw a slight dip in used-boat sales in 2016 with 63,505 units sold last year.

Corresponding dollars for used boats totaled $1.1 billion, down 2.3 percent from 2015, largely reflecting an 8.5 percent drop in outboard boat sales.

Sales of sterndrive boats, however, were up 5 percent. Inboard cruisers sales increased by 4.5 percent, personal watercraft gained 9.2 percent, and inflatable boats were up by 23.7 percent, all of which helped to offset the decline in other categories, according to data released by the National Marine Manufacturers Association Canada.

NMMA Canada released its third section of the 2016 Canadian Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract, focused on preowned markets.

The next section of the 2016 Canadian Abstract to be released is Exports/Imports, followed by the full report — a compilation of all sections.
