The combined sales of the Little Yacht Sales and Texas Power Yachts office has experienced a 33% increase in sales for January and February over 2013 and March is also looking to be up about the same percentage. Given the cold weather (even for Texas) over the past two months this has been even a surprise to us. I think it shows that the market has definitely come back. Especially in Sail. Power is lagging some in brokerage sales but new boat sales are up in Power as per the manufacturers.
If you have been waiting and waiting to get a boat, your time has just about passed because the supply of good clean used boats is dwindling. We expect to be even busier when it warms up!
