A last look at Sea Ray

A last look at Sea Ray

Journeys into Palm Coast

It was said news to recently hear that Brunswick Corp. is shutting down its Sea Ray boats plant in Palm Coast and will be laying off hundreds of workers as it discontinues its sport yacht and yacht models

Employees in Flagler County were notified the morning of June 25. The Palm Coast plant, located off Roberts Road, employed approximately 400 people and had cycled through large-scale layoffs and hirings in recent years. Production is also winding down at a Sea Ray plant at Sykes Creek. Between the two locations, Brunswick expects to eliminate as many as 825 positions.

The plant brought devotees from far and wide to get a glimpse - a pilgrimage of sorts.

In case you did not have the chance to get there yourself, there are a number of videoes you can check out. We prefer the one we post here.

We thank those who worked so hard at the plant and wish them all the best.
