Undoubtedly a factor...
The guy that I buy my boats from used to run a large dealership that sold the full Zodiac range and all the bits to support these little "cottage boats" and tenders. He "right-sized" a few years ago, and now only deals with commercial and government RIBS and a few nutbars like me.
This was years ago, but even then he was losing huge numbers of sales to jet-skis and other leisure activities.
