With the global economy booming, the wealthy are making the most of their earnings by buying boats.
- Yacht sales are rising, with both new and pre-owned yachts in high demand.
- This trend is creating a boom for associated services such as brokerages, consultancies, financing, aftermarket extended warranties, and trailer manufacturers.
- Other boat-building businesses are also profiting, including yacht charters, boat rental clubs and other sea-based leisure activities that offer people a break from everyday life.
Savvy companies in the boating and yacht industry are recognizing these unparalleled opportunities and exploring ways to position themselves to make the most of them. Victory Marine Holdings Corp.
