Lubricant manufacturer Bel-Ray Co. LLC said it is partnering with Manitou Pontoon Boats and will become the factory fill and recommended lubricant for all Manitou boats.
As part of the partnership, the complete line of Bel-Ray Marine lubricants will be used as the first fill for all Manitou pontoon boats.
The products include Bel-Ray HP Synthetic Blend 2-Stroke Oil; Bel-Ray Synthetic Blend and High Performance 4T Engine Oils; Bel-Ray High Performance Gear Oil; and Bel-Ray Full Synthetic Gear Oil.
“Both of our companies enjoy a high profile, and we need a strong partner for both production and dealer support,” Manitou Boats president Scott VanWagenen said in a statement. “Manitou and Bel-Ray are in the top of their respective fields with a passion for performance and a strong heritage as industry leaders. Our shared passion and obvious synergies make this an excellent partnership. We at Manitou look forward to raising the bar once again, together with Bel-Ray.”
