Fusion signs deal with Sea Pro Boats

Publish date:

Fusion said it has partnered with Sea Pro Boats to offer marine entertainment systems, speakers and amplifiers on all 2018 Bay Series and Center Console Deep V Series boats.

“Sea Pro has been making serious waves with its The Next Wave-branded boats,” Chris Baird, managing director of Fusion Entertainment, said in a statement. “At Fusion it’s the next sound wave that we take seriously and that’s why we are so excited to be able to offer Sea Pro customers our latest and greatest, state-of-the-art stereos and speakers.”

Founded in 1987, Sea Pro Boats was purchased by Brunswick Corp. in 2005. In 2015 Jimmy Hancock, one of the original owners of Sea Pro, along with Tidewater Boats’ founder Preston Wrenn, relaunched the company with an all-new incarnation of the Sea Pro brand — ‘The Next Wave.’

The line features six models, and two new models are expected in late 2017/early 2018. Sea Pro Boats are made in the company’s 200,000-square-foot Whitmire, S.C., facility.

“We’re pleased to offer our customers Fusion signature sound for our 2018 model year,” Hancock said. “Fusion stereos and speakers are renowned for their exceptional audio quality and True-Marine design, and we’re confident our customers will get maximum enjoyment from them on the water.”
