DSC03963Wake Boat Excitement…Sea Ray Style

The premier builder presents a new sport boat powered by Mercury Marine

Sea Ray entered the wake sport boat market with the new SLX-W 230, which is powered by a Mercury Marine V-Drive propulsion system.

The builder said the SLX-W combines wake-shaping capabilities with a deep-vee hull design, joystick piloting capability, a submersible swim step, Dynamic Display and a standard watersports tower.

“This is the ideal boat for active families seeking to maximize their time on the water,” Sea Ray president of sport boats and sport cruisers Brad Anderson said in a statement.

“We started with Sea Ray’s unique dedication to Orchestrated Excellence, then added a thrilling new wake-surfing technology design to achieve the perfect boat for wake sports, coving and cruising. The SLX-W delivers pure enjoyment with nothing sacrificed and we’re calling it Orchestrated Adventure.”

Sea Ray’s new SLX-W 230 offers its deep-vee hull, joystick capability, submersible swim step, standard tower, and Mercury Marine power.

Pre-sets for wakeboarding and surfing fill the 2,000 pounds of ballast to the appropriate level and set the underwater gear for the wave. The ballast system is entirely contained within the hull, a sophisticated solution Sea Ray said does not consume valuable storage space.

The company also said the SLX-W 230 offers a fully integrated joystick control that utilizes the engine and thrusters in an effort to make the boat more easily maneuvered.

“During the research phase of this project, customers were very clear about how difficult it was to maneuver traditional tow boats in close quarters, such as around docks or when picking up surfers,” Anderson said. “Working with Mercury Marine, we’re introducing a wake sports boat that makes it easy to dock in any condition and spin on a dime to pick up a fallen surfer more quickly.”

“With its incredible versatility, superior fit and finish, unprecedented wake technology and easy maneuverability — courtesy of Mercury’s joystick piloting technology — the SLX-W fulfills a bold new vision for wake sports capability,” Anderson said. “The wave of the future is here.”

SEA RAY® ANNOUNCES THE WORLD PREMIERE OF ITS NEW YACHT CLASS: THE FLAGSHIP L650 FLY

The flagship L650 Fly is a stunning example of design innovation and a paragon of Sea Ray’s Next Wave initiative to deliver a next-level boating experience.

The new L Class of boats from Sea Ray has its bar set high with the introduction of the L650 Fly and the promise of more to come.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the L-Class. This marks a new era for Sea Ray, a direct result of our desire to shape a better boating future and to offer a new class of yachts above and beyond anything our customers have ever seen,” said Tim Schiek, president of Sea Ray. “The L-Class speaks not only to Sea Ray’s commitment to purposeful innovation, but also to the company’s strong legacy of impeccable craftsmanship, performance and service. It’s a marriage of style and substance— because we firmly believe in the importance of both. We could not be more pleased to present the L650 Fly as the first of many L-Class models on the horizon.”

Sea Ray designers and engineers envisioned not only a spacious master stateroom, but one with an aesthetically pleasing  environment as well.

With its sleek profile and beautiful aesthetic, the L650 Fly features modern styling that marries Sea Ray’s distinctive heritage with a dynamic edge. This is a bridge boat to exceed all expectations, from its powerful performance capabilities to its state-of-the-art technology to its superior comfort and livability. Every surface, every finish is artfully chosen and pleasing to the touch. Driven by CAT Marine Power with optional Sea Keeper gyroscope stabilizers, the L650 Fly reaches top speeds in excess of 30 knots. Comprehensive QuietRideTM technology ensures dramatically reduced noise and vibration while underway.

A spacious foredeck provides plenty of opportunity for family and friends to enjoy the surroundings.

Throughout, spacious entertainment areas invite relaxed socializing, including a reimagined bridge with multiple dining areas and a robust helm station, plus a large sunpad playpen. Below, an elegant full-beam master suite and two additional staterooms provide luxurious accommodations and ample opportunity for personalization. In the salon, a convenient galley up overlooks an enormous living area; SkyFlow DesignTM means interiors are flooded with natural light and transitions between areas of the boat – including the sprawling cockpit – are seamless.

“The L650 Fly epitomizes the new L-Class,” said Tim Schiek, president of Sea Ray. “However, the introduction of L-Class is more than merely the launch of a new yacht; it’s a new approach to the market that’s includes product, along with a completely unique sales process and post purchase experience – executed at a level that only Sea Ray and our unparalleled network of dealers can pull off. The L-Class represents the best of everything Sea Ray has to offer.”

L-Class customers will have access to unique services and amenities, including dedicated customer service phone lines with rapid response times; prioritized remote service teams, a Sea Ray sales concierge to optimize the purchasing process, vessel orientation by a Sea Ray captain, and a class-leading standard 3 year bow to stern warranty (including engines and components), just to name a few. While the L650 Fly is the first model of the L-Class approach, there will be three more brand-new L- Class models by the 2014 Ft. Lauderdale boat show.
