The COVID-19 pandemic has raised several challenges for the boat manufacturers owing to the closure of plants in major countries such as US, UK, Germany, and among others. The major concern for the players is the declining production of boats in key countries, which in turn, is affecting the boat industry as a whole. North America & Europe being the prime region for deck boat will see a maximum fall in the sales as these are widely affected regions and a significant market for deck boat.

Rise in popularity of recreational activities

There has been a rise in recreational activities, such as fishing and boating, across the globe, which has created rise in demand for deck boats. The advanced features offered by deck boats, such as long shelf life, durability, customization, and environment-friendliness, further attract more customers. The major players are focusing on product launches, which will help in increasing marine tourism. For instance, in 2019, Bayliner expanded its DX series of deck boat with the launch of DX2200 and DX2250 sterndrive models. The newly launched boat is equipped with modern styling interiors & comfort coupled with ample seating and lounge space. Therefore, the demand for deck boat is anticipated to further increase over the forecast period.

High initial & ownership cost of recreational boats

Attributed to the sheer size and complexity, deck boat construction requires professional workers, which primarily increase the initial manufacturing cost of boat. In addition, the price of an engine equipped in boat is one of the most direct costs associated with a boat. Deck boats require high performance engine and the amount of horsepower will impact the total cost of the boat. Moreover, fittings and extra features, such as extra storage, seating or custom interiors, increase the initial cost of boats. Furthermore, various costs, such as registration fees, taxes, insurance, mooring or dock fees, regular maintenance, and overhaul maintenance, increase the ownership cost of these boats. Thus, owing to the high initial and ownership cost, low and middle-income groups are unlikely to spend on deck boat, which is restraining the market to an extent.
