Sea Ray celebrated its 60 anniversary during its dealer meeting at the Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas.
Attendees experienced on-water product testing of the full Sea Ray lineup plus training, opportunities to connect with other dealers and a Texas cookout. Sea Ray president and general manager Brad Anderson, Brunswick Boat Group president Huw Bower and Brunswick CEO David Foulkes shared business udpates with the dealers.
During the Diamond Anniversary Gala and Awards Dinner, Sea Ray honored dealers in categories including Lifetime Achievement, Customer Satisfaction Index Dealer Satisfaction and Diamond Recognition for 60 or more years in business.
Rod and Wanda Malone from Sail & Ski Center were honored posthumously with the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was accepted by their son Doug Malone and Sail & Ski president Buzz Watkins.
“My family is very honored to have our parents recognized by Sea Ray for the Lifetime Achievement Award,” Malone said in a statement. “Sea Ray was the catalyst that propelled our business to prosper and become what it is today. My dad absolutely loved everything about Sea Ray, the products and especially the people. He was so proud to be a Sea Ray dealer. We owe Sea Ray a great debt of gratitude for what they have done in our lifetime.”
