Top Safety Award for Boston Whaler

Boston Whaler is known for its brand-name unsinkable runabouts, cruisers and center console boats. This summer, the company’s headquarters in Edgewater, Florida, earned the prestigious Brunswick Safety Leadership Award. This top honor was given in a program conducted by parent company Brunswick Corporation. Boston Whaler then announced that it would donate the $10,000 prize received in conjunction with the award to two local charities, giving $5,000 each to Burns Sci Tech School and the Edgewater Animal Shelter.

“Safety is the number one priority in all of our manufacturing facilities across all of our Brunswick brands,” says Lee Gordon, director of marine communications and public relations for Mettawa, Illinois-based Brunswick. “We pride ourselves on the safety of our employees but also on the safety of our consumers as well. There are a lot of boaters in the Caribbean, and many key customers of Boston Whaler. We want them to focus on safety as much as we do to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable boating experience.”

There are over 30 Boston Whaler dealers in the Caribbean. www.bostonwhaler.com
