The Balearic nautical sector has maintained its boat registration figures identical to those of 2022

The Balearic nautical sector closed 2023 with a total of 1,075 registered recreational boats, a figure practically identical to the 2022 exercise, which saw the registration of 1,080 units, representing a slight decrease of 0.4%.

Of this overall figure, just over half corresponded to the nautical charter market, a sector led by the Balearic Islands at the national level, holding nearly 30% of the overall Spanish market.

It has been a year in which the nautical market has maintained balance in registration data, thanks mainly to those made for jet skis, with a downward trend that is expected to continue over the next year.

The Balearic nautical sector closed 2023 with a total of 1,075 registered recreational boats, a figure practically identical to the 2022 exercise, which saw the registration of 1,080 units, representing a slight decrease of 0.4%, compared to the slight national increase of 2.2%, reaching 5,976 registered units.

Of this overall figure, just over half corresponded to the nautical charter market. Specifically, 608 of the boats registered in 2023, that is, 56.3% of the Balearic total, are intended for rental. With this data on the table, the Balearic charter holds 29.56% of the national market, comfortably positioning itself as the leading province in this sector, followed by Barcelona, with 9.7%, and Girona, with 8.2%.

Returning to the data for the overall nautical market, last year, the Balearic Islands registered 18% of the boats recorded throughout Spain, ranking first among Spanish provinces. Barcelona followed with 10.5%, and Madrid with 7%.

By autonomous communities, only Andalusia and Catalonia, with market shares of 20% and 19% respectively, slightly exceed the Balearic Islands as the regions with the highest nautical activity overall. In the charter market, the archipelago leads in 2023, followed by Catalonia, with a 22% market share.

These data are part of the “January-December Report on the Recreational Boat Market 2023,” edited by ANEN based on information provided by the Directorate General of the Merchant Navy. “It has been a year in which the nautical market has maintained balance in registration data, thanks mainly to those made for jet skis, with a downward trend that is expected to continue over the next year,” notes ANEN. Given the complex global economic situation with no end in sight to international conflicts bringing uncertainty, the sector will need to make a significant effort in innovation, supported by an adjustment of taxation and progress in ongoing regulatory changes, to maintain and expand an attractive offer that stimulates sales,” evaluates Jordi Carrasco, general director of ANEN.
