All of us at Cruising World and Sailing World are pleased to offer our exclusive 2019 "State of the Sailing Industry" report to YBAA members with our compliments. We produce this annual snapshot of the sailing market as a service to the industry. Our 2019 report presents 2018 data on the charter market, brokerage sales, sailing participation, sailboat imports and domestic production.
The nicest boat you will ever own! Best choice for your cruising plan! Will last 5 years! Lifetime warranty! Boat will pay for itself! What do all these statements have in common? To put it simply, these are advertisement gimmicks to help persuade a prospective buyer to purchase the boat you are selling rather than those of the competitors. We see these all the time, on tv, on the radio, internet and flyers at any boat show. Everyday we are bombarded by such advertisements that most people are immune to their effects. However, these inducements do carry legal ramifications.
