Boat market 2021
The 2021 boat market was entirely under the influence of the global pandemic. But contrary to expectations, the market did not collapse; on the contrary, at times it seemed as if it had run dry. The ratio of used boats sold to new purchases in 2021 was approximately: 80% (used) to 20% (new). The total market of pleasure boats sold in 2020 was divided into: 1. motor yachts with 38 2. sailing yachts with 35%, all other sports boats such as dinghies, open boats, etc. add up to another approx. 28%.
The used boat market is quite tight due to the high demand and willingness to buy and currently only offers the chance to purchase a high-quality yacht at a reasonable price if you constantly monitor the market and correctly classify “outliers “. It takes a significant amount of research and experience to find the right ship at the optimal price in 2021.
