Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Basis of Accounting
Basis of Presentation. Effective January 1, 2023, Brunswick Corporation ("Brunswick" or "the Company") changed its management reporting and updated its reportable segments to Propulsion, Engine Parts and Accessories ("Engine P&A"), Navico Group and Boat to align with our internal operating structure. As a result of this change, the Company has recast all segment information for all prior periods presented. For further information, refer to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on April 10, 2023 and Note 9 – Segment Data.

Interim Financial Statements. Brunswick's unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to SEC rules and regulations. Therefore, certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements and related notes prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted.
Fiscal Period Policy The Company maintains its financial records on the basis of a fiscal year ending on December 31, with the fiscal quarters spanning approximately thirteen weeks. The first quarter ends on the Saturday closest to the end of the first thirteen-week period. The second and third quarters are thirteen weeks in duration and the fourth quarter is the remainder of the year. The first quarter of fiscal year 2023 ended on April 1, 2023 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended on April 2, 2022.
