Boating is a true American pastime – an estimated 100 million Americans partake in boating annually. The boating industry is thriving too; annual U.S. sales of boats, marine products, and marine services swelled to $49.3 billion in 2020. Have you ever gazed out and admired a sea or lake studded with swaying sails and wondered how many boats are in the U.S.? The National Marine Manufacturers Association reports that there are 17 million recreational boats and yachts across America’s waters! This infographic visualizes boat ownership statistics across the United States, which can be intriguing for both seafarers and landlubbers alike. Minnesota is the “flagship” for recreational boats and yachts with 143.6 per 1,000 people – that means that one in every six Minnesotans owns a boat!
