Traffic doubles on site

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Internet marketplace doubled its site traffic in June 2004 compared to June 2003, the company said as it released its manufacturers’ rankings for that month last Friday.

“ site traffic in June was up over 100 percent from last year and sets another new record for us and our clients” said Paul Rabe, president, CEO and co-founder, Inc. “The relative lack of movement in the top-20 positions accurately reflects summer patterns and the general status quo ahead of the new boat show season.”

The only changes to any of the top-five spots on either the powerboat or sailboat lists took place in the new powerboat category – where Glastron moved into the third spot – and in the sailboat category, where Hunter moved into the third position.

The rankings are based on the most popular consumer searches by brands, new and pre-owned, at the Web site’s online marketplace. The top-20 list is published monthly and reflects traffic data on all manufacturers and models available on Inc.’s Net Access Program.

Top power brands

On the power top-20 list, new, Tracker and Lund remained in first and second places respectively with Glastron moving into third. Sun Tracker was fourth, and Tahoe fifth, while Larson moved up four places into seventh with Zodiac, Hurricane and Chaparral re-entering in 18th, 19th and 20th respectively.

The power top-20 list, pre-owned, showed no change in the top-7 places, with Sea Ray, Bayliner, Wellcraft, Carver, Chris-Craft, Boston Whaler and Regal holding those spots in that order. Maxum moved into eighth place, with Four Winns ninth and Baja 10th.
