Knoxville-based Sea Ray Boats got a bit of good news from New York recently. The maker of pleasure craft won the Best Boat Display award at the 2012 Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show last weekend.
“This award is a testament to Sea Ray’s efforts to bring to life the best sales atmosphere and owner experience possible,” Rob Noyes, vice president of marketing for Sea Ray, said in a news release.
Usually I would now say something snarky about industry awards, but the Great Recession was hard on Sea Ray so I will refrain. I hope, however, that the boat show effort translates into increased sales and a better future for the company’s Knoxville area manufacturing plants.
