New survey asks dealers for insight on November market conditions

Will boats keep getting larger next year?

Will boats keep getting larger next year?

A new survey is asking retailers to forecast whether the trend toward larger boats with more amenities will continue into 2020, or if dealers see a tipping point and think the preference will shift toward more value products in the upcoming year.

The survey is also asking marine dealers to weigh in on November market conditions.

The brief, five-question survey, called the Pulse Report, was launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research in 2013. Trade Only later partnered with Baird to help distribute the survey and report its results.

The surveys analyze industry data points like new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. They also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers.
