Brunswick Commercial and Government Products will display alongside sister company Boston Whaler at the Feb. 11-15 Miami International Boat Show.
Brunswick Corp.’s boat group consists of 15 brands worldwide, including Bayliner, Boston Whaler, Brunswick Commercial and Government Products, Crestliner, Cypress Cay, Harris FloteBote, Lowe, Lund, Meridian, Princecraft and Sea Ray. The group’s additional four brands — Rayglass, Uttern, Valiant and Quicksilver — are marketed in countries other than the United States.
