The Brunswick Boating Behemoth

Some interesting information for dock talk:

Most people have probably heard of a Brunswick billiard (pool) table. But how many people know that the Brunswick Corporation is the parent company of over 10 recreational boat brands?

Ever heard of Crestliner boats? What about a Boston Whaler? Bayliner maybe? All three brands are owned by Brunswick. How about Lowe, Lund and Princecraft? Yup, all are owned by Brunswick. And all those boats need to be powered; so guess who owns the Mercury lineup of engines? Brunswick Corporation also owns the Attwood brand (marine accessories) and the Whale brand (best known for their pump, plumbing and heating systems).

To top it off, in June the Brunswick Corporation announced that it had acquired Power Products’ Global Marine & Mobile Business. This acquisition includes brands such as: Ancor, Blue Sea Systems, Marinco, Mastervolt, and ProMariner!
