Sea Ray to be sold by parent company

VONORE, Tenn. (WATE) - Sea Ray, the familiar East Tennessee boat manufacturer is going up for sale.

The sale will include the Tellico Manufacturing Plant in Vonore, as well as support facilities in Dandridge and Greeneville, according to Sea Ray's parent company, Brunswick Corporation.

An economic downtown prompted layoffs at the Sea Ray Knoxville plant in 2008 and the company's Forks of the River plant was shuttered in 2012. 

Brunswick released a statement Wednesday saying, "the specific and ultimate impact on any plants and facilities will depend the prospective buyer and an evaluation of their needs and capabilities."
