Sea Ray Boats For Sale UK
Sea Ray Boats was founded in 1959, in Oxford, Michigan, US, by Cornelius Nathaniel Ray III. One of the first US companies to utilise fibreglass, his first craft was a 16 foot family boat and as he expanded he focused on ensuring style in his boats’ interiors, even bringing a General Motors designer to his manufacturing plant to model the upholstery and consoles on that of a car.
Ray built Sea Ray into a global company, with 40 different boat models, ranging from 17 to 60 feet in size. When he sold it to Brunswick Corp. in December 1986, the company was building 28,000 boats a year.
