2019 Kicks Off Sea Ray’s Celebration of 60 Years
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 15, 2019) — At the boot Düsseldorf 50th international boat show, Jan. 19–27, Sea Ray will kick off celebrating 60 years of remarkably crafted boats with a sneak peek of the new SLX 350 model. boot Düsseldorf is one of the world’s premier boat shows and features nearly 1,800 exhibitors from 65 countries showcasing innovations and state-of-the-art developments in the boating industry.
“Boot Düsseldorf is the first major international boat show of the year,” said Brad Anderson, Sea Ray president and general manager. “We’re excited to celebrate two milestones: the 50th anniversary of boot Düsseldorf and the 60th anniversary of Sea Ray, with an expansive line-up of sport boats and cruisers, including the new SLX 350 at this world-class event.”
The SLX 350 presents an array of Sea Ray's NextWave™ innovations, from the noise-quashing powers of quietRIDE™, to the precision and stability of Dynamic Running Surface™, to the agility of Axius® joystick technology. Powered by a pair of Mercury® MerCruiser® 6.2L engines with Bravo Three® drives, the SLX is designed and engineered to elevate the boating experience.
The SLX 350 also offers a reimagined seating layout that is best-in-class with room for 18, anchored by a cockpit social area and “concealable” transom loungers. The intuitive helm comes standard with dual 9-inch Simrad® touchscreen information displays, including Mercury VesselView® Link Data, chart plotting maps, depth and fish-finder capabilities.
The new SLX 350 builds on the success of the prior SLX 350 model – with a significant added convenience, the Port Hideaway®. The interior Port Hideaway provides a relaxing air-conditioned space designed with families in mind.
“Our owners have provided feedback that they love the larger dayboats, but could extend their day or weekend even further with an expanded cabin space. The SLX 350 provides just that, an inviting space with an expanded cabin, comfortable plush seating, air-conditioning and a television,” said Brad Zoelle, Sea Ray vice president of category management.
Sleek design elements, unexpected accents and unique storage spaces can be found throughout the cabin and cockpit. A host of intelligent features combine in a sleek, stylish package that exceeds all expectations.
“The SLX series was launched to bring a luxury sport boating experience unlike any other to the market,” said Anderson. “The evolution of the SLX 350 upholds the orchestrated excellence found across the SLX model line.”
In addition, the following Sea Ray models will be available at boot Düsseldorf:
SPX 210 Outboard
SPX 230 Outboard
Sun Sport 230
