Motorbaot Battery

120,447 motorboats and 21,334 sailing boats worth EUR 2.8 billion were sold in the western European market in 2001. This translates into 6.7% growth. The figures signal that the boat industry is on course for added growth, although not for the moment at earlier double-digit rates.

The major motorboat market segment that boasts a slice of 67.8% in terms of value boosted sales by 4.2% last year compared with 2000, closing the year at EUR 1.82 billion. The biggest rise (10.8%) was in the 51 ft to 80 ft luxury class. 396 craft worth a total of EUR 395 million were sold.
