All products used on a Sea Ray vessel must be approved by our Product Development & Engineering (PD&E) group and the appropriate manufacturing locations. The appropriate Sea Ray Commodity Purchasing Manager will guide you through this process. Suppliers are expected to have conducted their own product quality evaluations and will be requested to supply a copy of their findings along with the samples submitted for Sea Ray's evaluation. In certain cases, Sea Ray may require industry certifications (i.e. NMMA, ABYC, UL, SAE, CE).
Prepare your formal quotation. Your Commodity Purchasing Manager will assist you in understanding Sea Ray's volume requirements and will provide you with applicable prints if available. Your quotation should include, but not be limited to, the following:
• Your part number, Sea Ray part number if available, package quantity and description
• Price* and minimum order
• Shipping and payment terms
• FOB point
• Your warranty policy**
• Term of the quotation
• Tooling requirements
• Lead time requirements
Quotations are evaluated on a "total cost" basis. By this, we are referring to all the costs associated with purchasing a particular component, including installation labor, freight, payment terms, inventory costs, estimated warranty cost, etc. All quotations are confidential, as is Sea Ray's current pricing.
*The more detail you provide us in terms of raw material content, labor and overhead, the better we will be able to evaluate your proposal.
**Sea Ray warranties its product, parts and labor for a minimum of one year from the date of sale to the consumer. Suppliers who exceed these guidelines receive more consideration than those who do not. Some key components may require a multi-year warranty. Your Commodity Purchasing Manager will provide details.
