ARLINGTON, Wash. — US Marine has introduced the Bayliner 175, which, according to a press release from the company, was “expressly designed and developed for today’s boating family.” Complete with a trailer and a 135-horsepower MerCruiser 3.0L stern-drive engine, the boat will be priced at $9,995 and is slated to be available to consumers in July.
“For more than 45 years, Bayliner has represented affordable family fun on the water,” said William J. Barrington, president of US Marine, in the release. “In fact, Bayliner has introduced more American families to the joys of boating and family fun on the water than any other manufacturer. Now, with our new Bayliner 175 we are again redefining affordable family boating.”
The new models are being built in Reynosa, Mexico using the exclusive Process Resource Optimization system of development and manufacturing, which was created by Brunswick Corp., US Marine’s parent company. According to the release, the trademarked PRO system consists of three key elements: the first is global manufacturing; the second is global sourcing of high-quality parts and components; and the third is institutionalizing a world-class quality assurance system.
“US Marine currently builds boats in Brazil and Bulgaria, as well as in numerous plants in the United States,” Barrington explained in the release. “In conjunction with the Brunswick Boat Group, we expanded our global manufacturing capability by putting together a completely new manufacturing facility in Reynosa, Mexico.”
