Sea Ray SLX 260 Surf: Premium Day Boat Equipped for Wakesports
Sea Ray has unveiled the latest model in its next-generation of sport boats, the SLX 260 Surf.
Combining the luxury of the SLX 260 with innovative wake surfing technology, the company says the boat should appeal to those who enjoy both casual cruising and the thrill of watersports.
The SLX 260 Surf is powered by a Mercury MerCruiser 6.2L MPI ECT engine with a forward-facing Bravo Four S drive, integrated SmartCraft technology and Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls.
Specialized Wakesurfing Gear
Working in tandem, electric surf tabs and ballast tanks control the height of the wave and produce a long or short pocket. Using a sophisticated custom user interface developed in partnership among Sea Ray, Mercury Marine and Simrad, surf settings can be adjusted with a touch of a button to accommodate specific watersports and riders’ preferences.
The SLX 260 Surf also features improved seating to promote ergonomics. The deeper seats allow for a smoother, more luxurious ride. The cockpit’s L-shaped bench seating encourages socialising with cooler storage for up to two soft-sided coolers.
The bow offers U-shaped lounge-style seating with foldable armrests. As part of the Comfort bundle, a teak table and filler cushion can be added. The filler cushion converts the bow into a large sunpad.
At the transom, the expanded sunpad presents a relaxing place to take in the sights along the water’s edge. The swim platform with a manual submersible step provides easy access to the water and facilitates reboarding after swimming or enjoying watersports.
Convenient storage has been incorporated throughout the boat, including an integrated cooler or dry storage spot under the transom sunpad and a transom locker for stowing gear, floating water mats and inflatables.
Overhead, the standard electrically-actuated watersports tower with an integrated Bimini top and surf tow points allows towing wakesurfers with ease.
The tower offers plenty of shade and coverage from the elements. It can also be upgraded with Fusion Signature Series speakers, part of the entertainment bundle’s premier audio package. LED RGB-W color-changing lighting with a Sea Ray logo projection is available with the lighting bundle.
In addition to the intuitive surf system, the SLX 260 Surf includes a host of technologies that deliver intelligent and seamless command.
The helm is equipped with a Dual Digital Dash featuring 9-inch Simrad touchscreen displays with Mercury VesselView Mobile, Active Trim control and monitoring, and CZone digital switching. As part of the entertainment bundle, the helm can be enhanced to add an inductive charging station.
The SLX 260 Surf is now available for order in North America, with shipments beginning in spring 2023.
