 Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Corporation : The All-New Sea Ray® 21 Jet

Knoxville, Tenn. - Jan. 11, 2013 - Perhaps the phrase "what a jet boat  always 
wanted  to  be"  sums  it  up  best.  Crafted  with  the  exceptional  design, 
engineering and  quality for  which Sea  Ray  has become  so well  known,  the 
all-new 21 Jet is a true "boat" and not just a "jet boat."

It starts with a substantial 21-foot,  6-inch length and 8-foot, 6-inch  beam, 
boasting exterior lines, sculpting  and styling that  embrace the sporty,  yet 
sophisticated,  Sea  Ray  DNA.  Six  (not  four)  stainless-steel  cleats  are 
thru-bolted at precisely  the right places  for easy use  when tying off.  And 
unlike many jet boats,  which come in only  one or two colors,  the 21 Jet  is 
available in five choices of  two-tone gel coat, in  addition to a black  hull 
bottom option and graphics upgrades.

The new Sea Ray's generous dimensions  translate into a spacious cockpit  with 
seating for up  to 10 people.  The bow  area has full  wraparound benches  and 
padded bolsters,  allowing  for  nearly 360-degree  utilization  (an  optional 
filler cushion creates  a full-width  sun pad).  Stainless-steel grab  handles 
replace the plastic ones found on many  competitive models. At the nose is  an 
anchor locker; it and the gel-coated storage compartments under the seats  are 
molded into  the finished  fiberglass  floor and  liner system.  This  quality 
construction feature provides added moisture protection, helps in cleanup  and 
maintenance, and creates a stronger and more solid overall design.

On the  other side  of  the tempered/tinted  glass windshield,  a  convertible 
lounger faces  forward  for comfort  while  under way,  or  can lie  flat  for 
stretching out. The rest  of the cockpit seating  consists of a big,  U-shaped 
bench topped by marine-grade vinyl with mildew and UV protection. The portside
console houses a standard Sony^® stereo  with CD-player and MP3 port;  12-volt 
accessory outlet;  beverage holder  and wakeboard  storage inside.  A  cockpit 
floor locker, with gas  assists, opens wide, so  owners can easily access  the 
interior with its  full rubberized  liner. A 25-quart,  carry-on cooler  comes 
with the boat and has its own dedicated storage.

Clean and compact,  the helm of  the new 21  Jet is reminiscent  of a  modern, 
luxury sports car.  Stainless-steel hardware  and bezels,  along with  lighted 
chrome toggle switches,  impart a  premium feel  consistent with  the Sea  Ray 
aesthetic. Custom backlit gauges come  with low-glare blue night-lighting  and 
glass lenses that  are more resilient  than plastic ones.  The tilt wheel  has 
leathery custom  padding, and  the helm  bucket seat  swivels and  slides  for 
optimum adjustability. Different  from competitive models,  a single  binnacle 
controls both of the twin engines  evenly for easier operation than with  dual 
binnacles.

Beyond the center transom walk-thru,  an aft entertainment zone redefines  the 
boating experience for owners of the 21 Jet. This multi-tiered,  multi-purpose 
area includes a pair of aft-facing seats with padded backrests and an integral
swim platform with three-step, stainless-steel ladder. It's the perfect  place 
to conveniently  gear  up for  water  sports, or  to  hang out  and  enjoy  an 
afternoon of sunning and  swimming. A ski  tow eye is  standard; add a  stereo 
remote and speaker package here for even more fun at the water's edge.

The 21 Jet  is powered by  twin, 120-hp MPE-850  four-stroke engines with  jet 
drives from Weber Motor,  a global manufacturer since  1969 that has  provided 
engines and engine  components for  world renowned automotive  brands such  as 
Mercedes Benz, BMW, Volkswagen, Ferrari and Ford. In addition, Weber has  been 
providing engines  and jet  propulsion  for the  marine  industry for  over  a 
decade, having  built  engines  for numerous  personal  watercraft  (PWC)  and 
jet-powered yacht tender companies.

The 21 Jet's intercooled and turbocharged engines offer rapid acceleration and
smooth operation through the  power band. Along with  the other advantages  of 
water-jet propulsion - shallow draft,  faster planing, no exposed lower  drive 
unit  -  Weber  engines  are  also  known  to  have  lower-than-average   fuel 
consumption for  extended  cruising  range.  Of  particular  note,  "optimized 
thrust"  from  Weber's  exclusive  reverse  gate  design  creates  efficiently 
balanced thrust that reduces drifting while  in neutral. The 21 Jet will  also 
be  the   first  and   only  model   available  to   meet  California   4-Star 
super-ultra-low emission levels, setting a new industry benchmark.

Like all Sea Ray boats, the 21 Jet comes with a long list of standard and
optional equipment to provide the best possible ownership experience. This
includes a painted trailer with disc brakes and swing-away tongue (standard)
and forward-facing, folding water-sports tower with integrated bimini top
(optional). And, of course, every Sea Ray benefits from the superior strength,
service support and marine focus of the world's largest dealer network.
