A leisure boat is also known as pleasure craft or recreational boat that is designed for and capable of moving in water with a maximum length of up to 24 meters, and is meant to be used for recreational or leisure activities only, and is not utilized in any type of business or moneymaking venture. The pleasure craft may also be used as a temporary residence for the owner, and often is equipped with amenities that are like those that are found in a home, albeit on a smaller scale. The very craft could be motorized or non-motorized depending upon the boat type.

North America accounts for the largest share in the global recreational boating market. In North America, the US holds the largest share of recreational boat market. Around 37% of the total population of the US participates in recreational boating on annual basis. Italy, UK, Germany and France are some of the major recreational boating markets in European region. The share of recreational boating market is expected to grow at higher rate in Europe region as compared to North America. This industry was hit hard during global recession as demand in major markets such as the US and Europe suffered a negative impact during economic slowdown. However, with improved economy with GDP projected to grow, an improving housing market, a stronger job market, increasing consumer confidence and a multi-year low on fuel prices have bolstered leisure boat market outlook for coming years.
