BAYLINER UNVEILS REVOLUTIONARY NEW JET BOAT IN NEW YORK

BAYLINER UNVEILS REVOLUTIONARY NEW JET BOAT IN NEW YORK
 NEW YORK, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayliner Marine Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of pleasure craft and a division of Brunswick, today unveiled a revolutionary new concept in recreation.
 The new product, JAZZ, is a 14-foot jet-propelled boat that can skim waves, run in as little as six inches of water, turn on a dime, tow skiers or be used as a platform for swimming and snorkeling. JAZZ comes with its own trailer, and is light enough to be towed by a compact car.
 According to Jim Hoag, the president and CEO of US Marine, the parent company of Bayliner, JAZZ is representative of a new generation of boats that combine the jet propulsion technology of personal watercraft such as jet skis and water bikes, with a more traditional boat design. The 90-horsepower JAZZ features a six-foot forward deck and generous storage space, and seats up to three people.
 "JAZZ was designed and created to bring a new dimension of fun to the water," Hoag said. "The consumer can now get the excitement of a personal watercraft combined with the recreational benefits of a true boat. It's a significant step up from other jet watercraft."
 The retail price for the entire JAZZ package, including the trailer, will be $7,995.
 According to Hoag, JAZZ has been under development for nearly two years.
 With JAZZ, Bayliner is targeting younger consumers who have made personal watercraft such as jet skis and water bikes the most resilient segment of the marine market. According to a recent article in Boating magazine, most personal watercraft are now sold in motorcycle shops.
 "We plan to manufacture 1,500 units during the first year of production, but the number could easily be doubled, depending on demand," he said. "We have no doubt that JAZZ is going to get a lot of people excited about boating again."
 JAZZ was formally unveiled at the Hudson River Club and North Cove Yacht Harbor. Immediately following the introduction, JAZZ was demonstrated on the water, and onlookers were given the opportunity to take test rides.
