NMMA shared the latest industry data and trend information below with local, regional and national business media outlets today announcing U.S. new powerboat retail unit sales are expected to surpass 300,000 units for the second consecutive year, closing 2021 an estimated 4 to 6 percent below record highs in 2020 and 7 percent above the five-year sales average.
