“A lot of the trends are heading into water transit systems, which has been a trend for quite a while,” Peterson shared during his interview.

Also trending is pool seating and accessories. “People want to enjoy the water without getting completely submerged. We are looking at lounge chairs, sunchairs and bar stools where people are sitting or lying in shallow areas.”
