Nationwide sales of recreational boats were up more than 5 percent in July according to data compiled by Michigan-based Statistical Surveys Inc. The statistics were based on “estimates from 30 states representing 70 percent” of the boat market.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the popularity of personal watercraft and jet boats are fueling some of the “highest levels” of U.S. boat sales “in years as buyers emerge late in the summer.”
