top new boating products 2016



Boating Industry Magazine selects products as best new innovations introduced in boating throughout 2015

Each year, Boating Industry magazine (the trade magazine for businesses in boating) releases a list of the top new products in the boating industry as part of their annual quest for new products and innovations.

Selected by Boating Industry magazine editors, the extensive list of top boating products in 2016 encompasses a wide variety of products from boats to accessories, from engines to apps. Products also range from OEM parts and accessories to technology products and services for both trade and boating consumers.

According to Boating Industry, hundreds of nominations were received during their call for entries in early 2016. To win the top product designation, products must have been introduced or significantly updated since the beginning of 2015. Winners were also chosen “based on many factors such as their impact on the industry, innovation and how they advanced their category.”
