“Brunswick Boat Group is the pinnacle of US boatbuilders, in terms of size and volume production. We’re honored to be selected by a market leader and are excited about the worldwide opportunities it presents.  While our initial projects are with their recreational brands, we can see the benefits of gyro stabilization translating to Brunswick’s commercial and military craft,” said Kermet.
