Number of deaths / injuries directly linked to boating accidents in the U.S. 2017 In the United States, 658 people died as a result of boating accidents and 2,629 people were injured in 2017. Over the past 15 years, this figure decreased by around one and a half thousand. Compared to the previous year, the number of deaths and injuries directly linked to boating accidents declined by approximately 300 people.
Accidents

Recreational boating is a popular leisure activity in the United States with participants using boats for (sports) activities such as fishing and water skiing and/or travel. Unfortunately, participating in these activities can result in accidents and damages - in 2017, the total damages caused by boating accidents in the U.S. amounted to around 46 million U.S. dollars.

Causes

Offering little protection space, it is not surprising that the vessel type involved in the majority of boating accidents is the open motorboat – with over two and a half thousand of these boats involved in accidents in 2017. In that year a survey found that the primary contributing factor of recreational boating accidents was inattention by the operator, accounting for over six hundred accidents in the U.S. in 2017.
