The latest Powerboat Sales Trends report, part of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) 2022 U.S. Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract, is now available.
Coming off extraordinary record demand in 2020 and 2021, as expected, sales of new traditional powerboats (outboard, inboard wake sport, inboard cruisers, sterndrive, jet) began a correction in 2022 with a normalizing of unit sales to pre-pandemic levels. This brought sales of new traditional powerboat units down 13.5% in 2022 to nearly 190,000 units. While the outboard, inboard and sterndrive categories saw declines, jet boat unit sales increased 39.4% or approximately 2,200 units. For more information, visit nmma.org/statistics.
