VIDEO: NMMA upbeat about potential sales for 2019

On the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s YouTube channel, organization president Thom Dammrich was optimistic, saying the industry has been on a “consistent 8-year-climb” and that some segments are reaching pre-recession levels.

In the Marine Minute production, Dammrich said, “With Americans heading to the water this summer, optimism is strong among manufacturers and dealers.” After breaking sales records last year, the NMMA expects to see powerboat sales up at least 2 percent in 2019.
