Sea Ray celebrates 60 years

Sea Ray is celebrating 60 years of manufacturing, which recently included an event at the Sea Ray Tellico Manufacturing Facility in Vonore, Tenn.

Since its opening in 1983, the Tellico Manufacturing Facility has produced more than 160,000 boats.

“It’s important to celebrate milestones like the one we’re celebrating now with Sea Ray,” said Steve Langlais, Sea Ray president. “We kicked off our anniversary celebration in May with a dealer celebration event and are continuing that theme with our manufacturing centers in Tenn. and Fla.”

During the event, more than 600 employees enjoyed lunch, raffle prizes and a video highlighting the last 60 years. Having worked at the Tellico Manufacturing Facility for more than 25 years, 99 employees were honored for their dedication with a hand-written thank you card and a token of appreciation from Langlais.

“It’s a great brand, but it’s the dedication of the employees that truly differentiate this company from the other boat builders in the area,” said Kellie Hood, director of human resources for Sea Ray."
