The final section of NMMA's 2017 U.S. Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract, Total Boat Registrations, is now available on NMMA.org. Total U.S. boat registrations edged up slightly (0.7%) in 2017 to 11,953,187. The Great Lakes region accounted for 27.3% of all state boat registrations in 2017, followed by the Inland region (18.4%) and the South Atlantic region (18%).
Members receive unlimited complimentary access to the digital versions of the Abstract and the reports are also available for purchase by non-NMMA members, which can be found here; the Total Boat Registrations Report is $2,299 for non-members. The complete Abstract is expected to be released later this month.
