Clarion Awarded Exclusive Marine Audio Systems Supplier Title by Bryant Boats

Leading provider of OEM audio and entertainment systems to the marine industry selected to outfit boats built by Bryant with latest in premium source units, speakers, amplifiers and accessories

Cypress, Calif. August 9, 2016 – Clarion Corporation of America, a leader in consumer and commercial mobile electronics, announced today that Bryant Boats has selected Clarion as its exclusive supplier of marine-grade audio and entertainment systems beginning with 2017 model year boats.

Bryant Boats joins an impressive roster of premium boat builders committed to offering the industry’s longest-lasting marine-grade audio systems to their customers. The newly awarded business further reaffirms Clarion’s status as the leading provider of OEM marine-grade electronics to boat builders.

“Bryant chose exclusivity with Clarion for many reasons, the biggest of which was Clarion’s unwavering focus on designing products specifically for the marine industry. Whilst many other companies focus on car or home audio, most treat marine as an afterthought.

Our customers identify Clarion as a premium marine-grade audio systems provider and we believe that Clarion is the only system supplier that offers high enough quality and durability suitable for the boats they own. Pairing Clarion’s world-class marine-grade audio systems with our world-class boats was a no brainer.”
