Brunswick Corporation: Sea Ray® Wins Best Boat Display at New York Boat Show

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 10, 2012 - Sea Ray Boats, the world's largest
manufacturer of superior quality pleasure boats, is pleased to announce that it
has won the Best Boat Display award from the 2012 Progressive Insurance New York
Boat Show last weekend. The display was chosen from 60 boat exhibits and was
judged based on use of space, appeal of display, promoting the boating lifestyle
and enhancing the customer experience.

"Sea Ray was chosen for a number of reasons," said Jon Pritko of the National
Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and manager for the boat show. "First,
the display is absolutely visually stunning. The use of different materials
mirrors the quality, design and craftsmanship of the boats, and the use of video
screens and the interactive aspects give potential customers an experience that
is second to none. In addition, the fact that Sea Ray took the initiative to
make an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant design says a lot about the
brand. Sea Ray has enhanced the consumer experience not only for visitors of its
display, but for the entire boat show as well."

This was the debut of the all-new display, which was created over a nine-month
period by InterGlobal Exhibits of Denver, with input from Sea Ray and its
largest dealer, MarineMax Inc. The expandable exhibit measured over 12,000
square feet as configured in New York, and included in excess of 40 Sony(®
)monitors that played videos and allowed visitors to use the custom Sea Ray app
to see product images, specifications and more. A boardwalk from the show floor
brought visitors up and into the display, placing them at the foot of an 8-foot
compass rose featuring a backlit Sea Ray logo.

"At Sea Ray, we always strive to demonstrate the exceptional products, service
and lifestyle that we offer to customers. Our new boat show display embodies
this approach and enables visitors to see and feel the premium allure of our
brand," said Rob Noyes, vice president of marketing for Sea Ray. "This award is
a testament to Sea Ray's efforts to bring to life the best sales atmosphere and
owner experience possible."

Sea Ray's new boat show display will make its next appearance at the 2012 Miami
International Boat Show from February 16 to 20. For more information, visit
