    More choices in power options coming soon.......both outboard and inboard....Hopefully some "fund" doesn't buy it and fuck things up

    I wonder how that will affect any liability/responsibility regarding any future claims/consideration for out of warranty defects in design or manufacturing.

    I wonder about parts. Sea Ray parts are already pricey.

    Also wonder how Sea Ray isn't profitable enough to keep around. Feel like Brunswick knows something we don't about the boating industry.

    I guess it's all going to come down to who buys it. If it's a fund then it'll be cost-cuts, cost-cuts, cost-cuts and getting 3-5 years of better financials without much regard for the 10+ year vision. If it's another boating manufacturer trying to reach into a new market then it may be a good thing. There may be some new boating passion there.

    I have no clue how the 'new-look' Sea Ray's are selling but they have left me dead-cold from an exterior perspective. Interior are still beautiful. Not that it matters because what I'd want is way out of my budget anyway. But I'd still like to see boats being produced that I'd want to buy 5 years down the road as used.
