Sea Ray launches new outboard model
US boating brand Sea Ray has launched the SLX 280 Outboard, the latest model in its range of premium SLX Series of recreational craft.
Brunswick-owned Sea Ray says its new 31ft vessel has an enhanced cockpit layout for improved functionality, with deeper seating and underfloor storage. The cockpit can be upgraded with a drawer-style refrigerator and an end table equipped with an inductive charging station, dry-storage compartment, and cup holders.
The U-shaped bow has lounge-style seating and foldable armrests, while a teak table and filler cushion that converts the bow into a sunpad can be added with the comfort bundle. Protection from the sun is offered by the optional Power Tower, which electrically controls an extendable sunshade.
The Power Tower can be enhanced with Fusion Signature Series speakers, and LED RGB-W colour-changing lighting is available with the Lighting Bundle.
“Last year, we introduced the SLX 260, which received accolades for design and innovation,” says Keith Yunger, Sea Ray president. “Our latest model maintains the sleek styling and premium features found on the 260, but with more space and additional amenities that help boaters enjoy a day on the water.”
Powered by twin Mercury 250 Verado engines with joystick piloting, the SLX 280 Outboard is outfitted with a dual digital dash with standard 9-inch Simrad touchscreen displays, Mercury Marine engine data, active trim control and monitoring, CZone digital switching and a Fusion stereo system.
