Sea Ray launches two new models in its premium SLX range: the SLX 260 and the SLX 260 OB. They are respectively equipped with sterndrive and Mercury Marine outboard propulsion.
The SLX 260 and SLX 260 OB carry the new design elements already seen in the Sundancer 370 OB in 2021. For example, the S-shaped deck line, long bow and Sea Ray badge are integrated into the hull under the crane.
The SLX 260 sterndrive is powered by a Mercury MerCruiser 6.2L MPI ECT Bravo 3 engine with SmartCraft DTS controls. The exterior model also gets a Mercury 300 Verado with DTS controls.
The seats of the SLX 260s are optimized for enhanced ergonomics and comfort. The L-shaped seat in the cockpit accommodates two large coolers. The bow rider is equipped with seats with foldable armrests. As part of the Comfort Pack, a teak table and sunscreen cushion can be added.
At the back deck level, the sunbathing area offers a kind of terrace at the water’s edge, so to speak. Additional tanks are integrated throughout the deck to increase storage capacity by 0.68 m3 over previous models. In particular, there is a built-in cooler, waterproof storage space under the aft sunbathing area, aft locker for storing equipment, floating water mats and other inflatable buoys. In addition, the ski compartment in the cockpit floor was expanded.
Distinctive alarm tower and dashboard
The new generation Power Tower skateboard has a fabric deck with a rigid structure. The turret can be lowered or raised with the push of a button, and removable fabric sections can be decompressed. The Power Tower can also be equipped with Fusion Signature Series speakers, part of the Audio Premier package, and color-changing RGB-W LED lighting with Sea Ray logo projection, available with the Lighting Package. The turret can also include an optional bimini.
The cockpit is equipped with a Simrad 9 dual-touch screen with Mercury Marine VesselView Mobile software. There is also an Active Trim and an optional inductive charger for mobile phones. On the mobility side, the new SLXs can benefit from the optional Dynamic Running Surface Auto Adjustment system.
