NMMA is pleased to have released the complete edition of the 2016 Canadian Recreational Boating Statistical Abstract last week. Many will recall that a few years ago we had no data on the size of the market! Through the work we did with Transport Canada we are able to offer to the industry the most comprehensive collection of statistics on the Canadian recreational boating industry and features thousands of data points and insights on Canada’s marine market. For highlights from the full Abstract click here.

There are four sections of the 2016 Abstract — Economic Facts, Retail Markets (New Boats), Pre-Owned Markets, and Exports/Imports — which are available as individual downloads as well. The Abstract and its reports can be downloaded here. NMMA members receive unlimited complimentary access to the digital versions of each section in addition to the full compilation report. If you would like a printed copy of the Abstract please make sure to contact our office to pre-order a copy before August 4th.
