The number of registered boats reached 5,929 units in the first 11 months of 2019

ANEN, the Spanish marine trade association, has announced that the number of leisure boats registered in Spain during the first 11 months of 2019 reached 5,929 units – a 9.7% increase over the 5,403 boats registered during the same time last year.

Strong results for the months of October (up 21%) and November (up 14.8%) were notable, says ANEN, as the market traditionally declines after the summer season.

Of the total vessels registered by November 30, 1,541 (26%) were for charter. The boat rental market continues to improve, with the number of registered rental boats up by 3.4% during the period.

The data was collected in a report of the pleasure craft market (January-November 2019) that was edited by ANEN and based on data provided by the General Directorate of the Merchant Marine.
