The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) 2019 U.S. Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract, Outboard Engine Sales Trends report shows sales increased for the eighth consecutive year in 2019, nearly reaching pre-recession levels with a 13-year high.
“We’re seeing the trend in consumer demand for higher performance engines continue with outboard engine sales growth in 2019 led by engines 200hp+, accounting for 27 percent of sales, and sales of 300hp+ engines up 18 percent,” said Vicky Yu, director of business intelligence for NMMA. “After a pick-up in nearly all high-volume categories in the fourth quarter, inventory turns are healthy and manufacturers are expanding capacity in anticipation of demand. We expect another growth year for outboard engines sales in 2020.”
