Dear Recipient Name

The 2022 report on total boat registrations is now available to download, part of the 2022 U.S. Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract. There were 11.9 million boats registered and documented boats in the U.S. in 2022, down slightly compared to 2021.

The top five states for boat registrations in 2022 were Florida, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio and California, with Ohio continuing its upward climb, moving up from sixth place into the top five in 2021, and now in fourth position for 2022. By region, the Great Lakes accounted for 34.1% of all state boat registrations in 2022, followed once again by the South Atlantic at 17.7% and the Gulf Coast at 10.6%.

The Recreational Boat and Marine Engine Exports and Imports section of NMMA's 2022 U.S. Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract is also available. This report examines historical and recent trade data on different categories of recreational boats and marine engines imported to and exported from the U.S. each year.

The trade dynamics in 2022 were influenced by various geopolitical events. Regionally, Canada, Mexico, the European Union, and the Asia-Pacific region remained the most significant trading partners for the U.S. recreational boating industry. In 2022, marine exports increased by 10.1% to $2.5 billion, while imports rose by 17.6% to $5 billion, making 2022 the first year in recent history where the trade deficit exceeded all national marine exports.

Propulsion alternatives continue to unfold. VETUS, creator of complete onboard boat systems, has announced that approval has now been granted to use Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) on its D and M-Line series of marine diesel engines. The approval and certification follow an intense period of bench and field tests.

HVO, also known as renewable diesel or green diesel, is a diesel-like fuel that can be produced without fossil resources. This lower-carbon fuel is a more sustainable alternative to diesel and contains low sulphur and aromatics. HVO is derived from a variety of lipid sources, the most common including vegetable oil, tallow, or used cooking oil.

The use of renewable fuels such as HVO substantially decreases exhaust emissions by up to 90% in CO2, CO, HC, NOx, and PM. HVO burns more cleanly than first generation biodiesel or mineral diesel. In addition, due to its good oxidation stability, it is not prone to bacterial growth.
