NMMA CanadaNMMA Canada has released the third section of the 2016 Canadian Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract – Pre-Owned Markets. The new report shows that pre-owned boat unit sales in Canada totaled 63,505 units in 2016, down slightly (0.8 percent) after rebounding to a two-year high in 2015. Corresponding dollars for pre-owned boats totaled $1.1 billion, down 2.3 percent from 2015, largely reflecting an 8.5 percent drop in outboard boat sales. However, growth in unit sales of sterndrive boats (up 5 percent), inboard cruisers (up 4.5 percent), personal watercraft (up 9.2 percent) and inflatable boats (up 23.7 percent) helped to offset the decline in other categories.

NMMA Canada’s annual Statistical Abstract is the most comprehensive collection of statistics on the nation’s recreational boating industry, providing insights that help stakeholders understand the economics of boating, as well as a common set of numbers stakeholders can reference when assessing the Canadian recreational marine market. The next section of the 2016 Canadian Abstract to be released is Exports/Imports, followed by the full report – a compilation of all sections.
Individual sections of the 2016 Abstract can be downloaded here within the Statistics section of nmma.ca. NMMA members receive unlimited complimentary access to the digital versions of each section as they’re available, in addition to the full compilation report later this summer. The print edition of the full report can be pre-ordered here.

VOLVO PENTA D13 1000 400

Recently, John Armstrong of Canadian Yachting magazine traveled to Maine to sea trial the exciting new MJM 35z.

MJM Yachts was founded in 2002 by Bob Johnstone, who also co-founded J Boats, Inc., the world's leading brand of performance sailboats (14,000 worldwide). Asked why the move to power, Bob, who is 83, replied, "Seems my wife and I had gotten older and our boats had to reverse roles. I'll always enjoy a daysail on the latest 'J.' But our quality cruising time is now on a motorboat." 

This was the concept behind the development of their line of power yachts and we talked with Bob Johnstone on video about his...READ MORE

SAFER AIR CONDITIONING WITH THE SMARTPLUG

Smart Plug 400During the heat of summer, many boat owners turn on their air conditioning units. Whether portable or installed, they have serious power requirements that can strain and overload outdated, twist-type shore power systems. A safer approach is to use the revolutionary SmartPlug. 

Available in 30 or 50 amp models, the SmartPlug consists of an inlet and cordset with connector. What sets it apart from traditional shore power equipment is the unique pin and clip design that provides more metal-to-metal contact. This dramatically reduces the chance of fire due to resistance and overheating from the loads an air conditioner can place on the system. Plus, its asymmetrical plug with spring-loaded locking clips slides straight in, making it easy to do when tired or it's dark. READ MORE
