*Boat owners in the United States use their boats an average of 15 times annually (NMMA).
*Do the math, it will cost the average boat owner somewhere between $500-$1000 per use.
*The NMMA also reports that the average boaters needs change every 2-5 years. That means that the boat you purchase today will most likely not meet your needs in 2-5 years.
