Developments in Electric Boats are a driving factor for the demand

Electric boats are growing in popularity due to the fact that today’s consumers and authorities are increasingly concerned about the emissions and pollution caused due to traditional engines. Electric boats are noiseless, odorless and smokeless and can be charged from the grid. They also require less maintenance and are cheaper in the long run since refuelling is significantly cheaper.

The COVID-19 Pandemic did not hamper the demand boom in the Leisure Boats Market.

The pandemic initially hurt the market as manufacturers were faced with a shortage of skilled labor and materials like fiberglass and resin. However, the demand picked up soon after and eventually grew to reach higher numbers than pre-pandemic. This combination led to a shortage of boats even for those willing to pay the new higher prices. Marina docking fees, maintenance, and winter storage charges all saw an increase.
