Bayliner, Boston Whaler and Sea Ray Honored by Moteur Boat Magazine During the 2021 Boat of the Year Awards


Dec 21, 2021

Three of Brunswick’s leading brands within its boat group portfolio – Bayliner, Boston Whaler and Sea Ray Boats – were all recognized internationally as winners of the 2021 Boat of the Year Awards by Moteur Boat Magazine, France’s leading nautical publication.

During the 2021 Paris Boat Show, the Boston Whaler 280 Outrage and the Sea Ray SDX 250 Outboard were both honored with the Judges Special “Boat of the Year” Award. This is the third consecutive year that Sea Ray has been recognized with the award and the first year two Brunswick brands tied for first place.

Additionally, “Boat of the Year” for the -7m category was presented to Bayliner for the newly launched Element M17 recognized versatility, stability, and value for the consumer.

“We are honored to be selected for three Moteur Boat Magazine awards for three of the most well-known brands in the marine industry,” said Aine Denari, Brunswick Boat Group president. “These awards are a testament to the power of our brands and ability to meet the needs of our global customers. Congratulations to the entire team on these fantastic honors.”

The awards are judged purely on the boats’ design, ability and value for money in their chosen marketplace, and all the boats were sea-trialed and rigorously tested by the magazine’s technical experts. The awards included seven different categories, as well as the Customer Service Award.

All three Brunswick brands will be featured in the upcoming edition of Moteur Boat Magazine.
