Sea Ray to release outboard-powered boat models
Sea Ray will launch an outboard-adapted version of its Sundeck line in the late fall or early winter of this year as part of its efforts to have a presence in more boat segments, Sea Ray President Rob Parmentier recently told Boating Industry magazine.
Both models will be similar to the boat builder’s current Sundeck line but adapted to accommodate the outboard motor. Sea Ray’s outboard boat offering will feature a 22- and 24-foot model.
“We want to enter the market, and we have some specific areas of the country that have requested it, especially in Florida,” Parmentier said.
Parmentier said the boat builder will use its current partnership with Mercury Marine and equip both models with Verado outboard engines.
Sea Ray’s entry into the outboard boat market will come soon after the launching of its jet boat line this fall.
