Why New Jersey Boat Sales Are Off The Charts


Last weekend a friend and I went to the Atlantic City Boat Show. It’s an annual event that draws thousands of people to AC Marina to check out and board boats that most of us can’t afford, but someone is buying them. And buy them in record numbers.

Boat builders cannot meet demand and orders are several months or even a year.

During the pandemic, people were looking for activities they could do in their own circle or family. So “let’s buy a boat!” Next used boats are at a premium also.

Knowing we weren’t going to buy a boat, we decided to see what we were missing last Sunday at the AC Boat Show.

One of the sellers there told me to research the glut of used boats on the market in about three years. This is either when we will return to a more normal life, or when people realize that boats are so expensive to maintain.
