Sedan Bridge Boat Market Outlook 2021-2030 -
Sedan bridge boats are basically same as a sportfishing yacht, but without the installation of the fishing part. Meaning the tuna lookout tower and fishing amenities have been exchanged for more deck space and individual comforts, like a swim platform. A helm in the cabin as well as on the fly bridge above give driving options for sunny or rainy days. They have ample living accommodations, including an electrical generator, AC and plumbing. Sedan bridge boats are certainly not made for speed, but they are made for entertaining and taking long trips. These small yachts have enough rooms and amenities, like a bathroom and a cooking area, to be live aboard boats. In fact, some people say they are one step away from being houseboats, in sedan bridge boats there is a cockpit, living spaces, and the fly bridge is like a balcony.

COVID-19 Impact analysis
The COVID-19 has taken a toll on the tourism sector worldwide with complete restrictions imposed on international travel. The entire supply chain was disrupted in the first two quarters of 2020 with several manufacturing plants closed and businesses experiencing a labor shortage. The COVID-19 also had an impact on the exports and imports leading to the shortage of equipment and sub-assemblies required for boat building. This consequently led to significant waiting times for new customers as manufacturers were focused on ensuring the product deliveries of pending orders. Along with the sales of boats, the revenue generated through services also took a hit as small third-party vendors had to shun their businesses due to the financial crisis arising out of lockdown restrictions. However, the gradual movement toward re-opening the economies, coupled with the prolonged restrictions on the movement of people, has resulted in developing an urge among the individuals to indulge themselves in recreational activities. Therefore, the market is anticipated to recover slowly over the forecast period.
