Deron Williams Joins the Marine Products Family with the Purchase of a New Supra SL 550

Deron Williams, NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold medalist has spent much of his downtime in the past year honing his craft in two other sports: golf and skiing. Staying with this theme, and bringing his family with him, Deron has partnered with Marine Products and Supra Boats to tackle a new challenge: wakesurfing and wakeboarding.

To take on this new challenge, Deron is getting behind the wheel of a 2018 Supra SL 550. The 550 is powered by Indmar’s Roushcharged Raptor 575 and comes with all the standard features you’ve come to expect from the Supra lineup like AutoWake, the FxOne power folding tower, and JL audio. At 23’ 5” the SL 550 provides plenty of room for family and friends with seating up to 17 people, and plenty of storage for boards, skis, and gear for a successful day on the water. The SL 550 also includes all the tech to make dialing in the wake, from the beginner to the expert rider, simple with AutoWake and the Vision Touch system.

For boards, the theme of high performance on the water is alive and well. Ronix is hooking Deron up with two top-of-the-line Carbon Skimmers to take his wakesurfing to the next level.

“I chose Supra because they build the best wake boat hands down,” explained Deron Williams, NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist.  “A Supra boat produces the best wake, has the smoothest ride and delivers the most power available with its Roushcharged Raptor by Indmar.  Supra Boats are innovators in every way. They have the best styling, genuine quality and performance of any boat I’ve ever seen or experienced on the water.” Williams further explained, “A good friend of mine that used to work for Marine Products told me that if I was looking for a boat, that Marine Products would take care of me. He wasn’t lying. They made my experience of buying a boat a breeze and ensured I got everything needed for my family to have a great time on the water.”

With Williams’ NBA career winding down, he was searching for a new hobby that would still embrace his inner adrenaline junkie and he found it with wakeboarding and wakesurfing. Deron also wanted to spend more time with his family and couldn’t think of a better place than on the water piloting the best wake boat in the business.
