With 1.7 billion USD in net sales in 2008 alone, the Brunswick Boat Group is the king of recreation boats. The Brunswick Boat Group, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, makes pleasure boats and offshore fishing boats on a variety of labels. Among the 45 brands are Cabo Yachts, Flipper, Sealine, and Quicksilver.
The BBG was formed in 2000 to manage the holdings of the Brunswick Corporations labels. The group is privately held. In five years, from 2000 to 2005, BBG doubled in size and acquired 13 new brands. The sluggish economy has had an affect on the company; they had to reduce their workforce by 10 percent after seeing sales fall 16 percent in 2008. The brands associated with BBG have impeccable reputations. Whether you own a Sealine or a Flipper, be sure to use Yamalube 2M oil.
