Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick and Mercury Marine to Aid Humanitarian Efforts of Mercy Ships in Africa

METTAWA, Ill. Sept. 28, 2017 - When the Africa Mercy, the world's largest
private hospital ship, provides its next field service in Cameroon, Africa, it
will do so with a new dive boat and several new Mercury Marine outboard engines
for the ship's dive and rescue operations thanks to a recent donation from
Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) and its engine subsidiary, Mercury Marine.

Mercy Ships is a global charity that offers free life-changing surgeries,
holistic health care and specialized training for local health care
professionals in some of the world's poorest areas.  The ship's marine
operations department recently took delivery of two, 25hp outboard engines to
replace the engines on the ship's rescue boats as well as an Ocean Runner 460
RIB, powered by a four-stroke 60hp Mercury Marine outboard.

Performance on the Africa Mercy's rescue boat engines had dropped off, and it
was time to replace them with more dependable engines.  In addition, the ship's
dive boat and engine were not providing the dependency needed for dive teams,
who regularly inspect and clean the ship's seawater handling systems. These
donations will ensure the safe, and effective operations of both the rescue and
dive boats.

"We are delighted to provide the RIB and engines to Mercy Ships, an organization
that is giving hope to those in need around the world," said Brunswick Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer Mark Schwabero. "When someone's life is on the line,
having reliable engines and a dive boat is imperative.  We are thrilled to know
that Mercy Ships will be able to continue to provide exemplary service to those
in need along the African coast."

"Since 1978, Mercy Ships has delivered needed health care and other services to
more than 2.5 million people in some of the world's most needy areas," Schwabero
added.  "We are more than pleased to help this valuable service continue along
its humanitarian mission."

"We are most grateful to the team at Brunswick for the donation of a new dive
boat and outboards for our rescue boats, helping us to provide the utmost care
to our next port - Cameroon. These donations will make a significant difference
to the operations of the Africa Mercy," stated Mercy Ships Captain John Borrow,
of the Africa Mercy.
