Americans continue to enjoy boating as a safe, healthy way to relieve stress and enjoy quality time outdoors. An estimated 100 million Americans enjoy boating and the economic contributions from boating and fishing were up nearly 30 percent in 2020, compared to 2019.
Here are some additional eye-popping statistics from last year:
- Annual U.S. sales of boats, marine products and services totaled $49.3 billion in 2020, up 14 percent from 2019.
- It’s not just new boats being sold; an estimated 1.1 million pre-owned boats were sold in 2021.
- U.S. new powerboat retail unit sales are expected to surpass 300,000 units for the second consecutive year
What’s more, manufacturing productivity is revving back up to meet demand for new boats and building production is nearing pre-pandemic levels as supply chain constraints ease. This year new boat sales are projected to surpass 2021 totals by as much as 3 percent, making 2022 is the perfect opportunity for you to grow your business with Chubb Recreational Marine.

It’s spring — and time to prepare for boating season. If your boat was in lay-up over the winter, you’ll need to take care of a few things before it’s ready to go. Here are some suggestions to help you make sure your vessel is ready for a successful launch and a safe and relaxing season.
Once a summer ends, many boat owners across the country will begin to prepare their vessels for winter storage. To help your client with this important lay-up process, we’re sharing our “Going Into Lay-Up” tip-sheet, along with our full length “Going Into Lay-Up” brochure.
