The recreational yacht registrations were 3.902 in total during 2013, which is 19,46% less than previous year, although a slight increase of 2,7% was witnessed during the last quarter of the year, informed the National Association of the Nautical Enterprises (ANEN). According to the statement by ANEN, the fall of registrations - for the sixth consecutive year - was due to the bad results during the first half of the year, when the registrations fell by 28%.
The reversal of this tendency during the last months of the year suggests an end to the fall of the sector and a stabilization of the market. However, this increase was a result of a point of inflection in October (274 registrations compared to 236 in the previous year), as in November and December the registrations fell again slightly compared to the same months the year before. The recreational yacht registrations have fallen from 12.617 in 2007 to the current 3.902.
