KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 12, 2018) — Sea Ray's SLX 400 shot to rapid acclaim following its debut, earning a NMMA Innovation Award for its array of design breakthroughs. Now, "The Entertainer" is available with all the benefits of outboard power in the dynamic new SLX 400 Outboard.

"We're thrilled to feature our SLX 400 Outboard at this year's Miami International Boat Show," said Brad Anderson, president and general manager, Sea Ray Sport Boats and Sport Cruisers. "This show draws boating enthusiasts from around the world and captures the attention of our industry. It's the perfect venue to display our newest flagship sport boat. Like the SLX 400, the SLX 400 OB is a complete on-water oasis that makes all-day cruising, docktailing and coving a breeze."

The SLX 400 OB is yacht certified, and its best-in-class layout has seating for a whopping 22 passengers and an abundance of storage space; including an enclosed compartment for two, full-size paddleboards. Fit and finish are superior, with premium upholstery and a purity of line and form. Below deck, a generous cabin makes the SLX 400 Outboard so much more than a day boat, offering a comfortable space to escape the elements, tuck the kids in for a nap, or stretch out and spend the night. The aft section includes a queen-sized bed, the V-berth converts from the dining area to another sleeping area, and an elegant head ensures comfort during extended outings.

One of the most notable features on the SLX 400 Outboard is the game-changing fold down swim terrace, a brilliantly designed wing of the hull on the starboard side that opens 90 degrees to expand the cockpit all the way to the water. A plush sunpad extends the width of the transom and features a converting backrest that opens to face the swim terrace.
The bow offers an additional social zone that accommodates crowds with ease. A row of forward touring seats features armrests and cup holders. Additional forward benches surround a bow table that converts into a sunpad. The bow also features a sunshade for protection from midday rays.
Innovative technologies on the SLX 400 OB include:

  • Joystick Piloting for Outboards (JPO) system for effortless docking and turn-on-a-dime maneuvering
  • QuietRide™ for dramatically reduced noise, vibration, and harshness, even at speed
  • An advanced Digital Dash helm, featuring standard dual 12" glass displays with digital switching
  • Available Dynamic Running Surface™, boosting precision and stability by automatically optimizing running attitude and trim
Boaters can enjoy incredible performance and seamless operation, every single time they are on the water. "Sea Ray continues to raise the bar for design, performance and craftsmanship," Anderson said. "The SLX 400 Outboard is a prime example of just how incredible a sport boat can be."
