Boat Market: Sailboat/Motorboat

I found some interesting information about the number of sailboats versus motorboats. It is only referring European markets so I would like to have information about the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries, just to get a general pictures.

In Europe the proportion between sailboats and motorboats is very different from country to country. Motorboats have generally a large percentage, but my guess is that in the US, the percentage of motorboats is much higher. Am I wrong?

Germany: Sailboats 20% France: Sailboats 20% Poland: sailboats 85%

Swede: Sailboats 17% Greece: Sailboats 6% Netherlands: Sailboats 50%

Portugal: Sailboats 4% Norway: 6% Croatia: 75% Finland: 2.5%

Belgium : 41% Ireland: 50% Denmark: 14% Spain: 33% Switzerland: 51%

U.K: 35%

Please, if you have access to this kind of information regarding other countries, post it

Regards

Paulo

Canada:

"Canadians own 2.0 million recreational boats including 637 350 canoes, 148 500 sailboats, 349 650 rowboats, 823 200 outboards and 120 000 other boats of all sorts."

But that was 11 years ago

And this, regarding USA is even older:

Of the boats owned in the United States (about 1.4 million units), 8 percent are sailboats. This includes both nonpowered sailboats (1.3 million) and auxiliary-powered craft (70,000). Altogether, sailboats represent about 4 percent of boats manufactured. ...
