“For 60 years, Sea Ray dealers have been serving loyal and repeat customers,” said Brad Anderson, President and General Manager, Sea Ray Sport Boats and Sport Cruisers. “Sea Ray is the most awarded brand with the most awarded dealer network in the country.

“I’m personally grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and learn from him,” Anderson said. “He was instrumental in growing Austin and San Antonio as top Sea Ray markets, and we can’t forget the Sail & Ski partnership with one of Sea Ray’s most famed events, Aquapalooza, hosted on Lake Travis.” Anderson said that after a 31-year relationship with Sea Ray, Malone is dearly missed, and his legacy lives on with a dedicated team of individuals he inspired within the Sail & Ski organization.
