Sea Ray: the story of the iconic American powerboat brand

Sea Ray, an iconic brand of recreational powerboats, began in 1959 in Detroit, Michigan, thanks to the ambition and passion of Connie Ray.

Sea Ray made boatbuilding history by becoming the first manufacturer to use fiberglass in the construction of its recreational boats.

Originally founded as the privately held Ray Industries, Sea Ray is now owned by the Brunswick Corporation, which acquired Ray Industries in 1986 for $350 million.
Since then, Sea Ray has established itself as one of the world’s largest recreational boat builders. The yard offers a range of models from 5.2 meters (17 feet) to 20 meters (65 feet).
Currently, the company has several building sites in Florida and Tennessee, where it designs, manufactures and markets high quality boats to meet the needs of the most demanding boaters.
