                  Contest open to all consumers through May 27

LAKE FOREST, Ill. May 19, 2016 - Marine brands of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE:
BC) are joining boating-safety advocates during National Safe Boating Week, May
21-27, to promote safe and responsible boating. Brunswick will help spread the
word about elements of safe boating, including wearing a life jacket every time
a boater is on the water, using products and services that promote safe boating,
and seeking proper training to educate and inform boaters.

Participating brands include Attwood marine parts and accessories; Mercury
Marine outboard and sterndrive engines; MotorGuide trolling motors, and
Quicksilver parts and accessories as well as Brunswick boat brands Bayliner,
Boston Whaler, Brunswick Commercial & Government Products, Crestliner, Cypress
Cay, Harris, Lowe, Lund, Meridian and Sea Ray.  Brunswick brands will reach out
to the public to support the initiative.

Further, to underscore the message and provide a fun way for consumers to
interact, each of the participating Brunswick marine brands will feature a
sweepstakes on its social media site (Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram).  The
prize consists of a safety kit that features Attwood's bailer safety kit, multi-
function LED sport light, first aid kit, telescoping emergency paddle and 40-
liter dry bag along with two Stearns personal flotation devices and a Mercury
emergency-shutoff marine lanyard. Consumers may also enter the contest directly
at See contest rules for sweepstakes terms and

immediate families are ineligible.  Contestants can enter once a day for the
life of the contest, with the 14 winners selected at random from the pool of all
eligible entries on June 1.  Prizes will be shipped within 15 days of the
announcement of the winners.

National Safe Boating Week is the launch of the 2016 North American Safe Boating
Campaign. This yearlong campaign promotes safe and responsible boating including
the following:

  * Demonstrating the value of voluntary, consistent use and wearing of life
    jackets by recreational boaters. The National Safe Boating Council will once
    again stress the importance of wearing a personal flotation device through
    the campaign's theme, Wear It!  The Council believes wearing life jackets is
    the simplest strategy to stay safe, while enjoying your favorite
    recreational water activity. New life jackets are much more comfortable,
    lightweight and stylish than the bulky orange style most boaters have known
    through the years. There are innovative options, such as inflatable life
    jackets, which allow mobility and flexibility for activities like boating,
    fishing, paddling or hunting, and are much cooler in the warmer weather.

  * The use of products that promote safe boating, such as safety lanyards,
    which are attached to a personal flotation device or around the boat
    driver's wrist, and then connected to an engine-shutoff switch. If the boat
    driver should fall overboard or to the deck of the boat, the engine-shutoff
    switch will be activated by the lanyard clip, stopping the engine and
    significantly reducing the risk of bodily harm.

  * Demonstrating the importance of boating safely, such as taking a boating
    safety course and knowing navigational rules. Classes and on-water
    instruction are available through many sources, including the United States
    Power Squadron. For more than 100 years, the Power Squadron has worked to
    make the water a safer place through boating education, civic service and
    fellowship. With the United States Power Squadron, you can improve your
    boating skills and knowledge online, in the classroom with certified
    instructors, or outdoors with hands-on training. You can get more
