Recreational Boating: A glimpse into the future

The world of recreational boating is constantly changing. Some changes are positive, such as advancements in marine electronic technologies. Some are less so, such as economic factors slowing the boat market. In the future, it is likely that usage of marine electronics will continue to grow, and technologies such as digital marine sonar, radar, autopilots, and programmable Global Positioning Systems will lead to the development of “smart boats.” Future boat design will emphasize fuel efficiency, and it is likely that building costs will rise.
