New Model: Sea Ray L650 Fly

Sea Ray launched its new flagship at the just ended 2014 Miami boat show, the L650 Fly, with the L in-front of the model size meaning for luxury, a new high end range which will characterize the new big models from the known North American production boat builder. With this new Sea Ray continue the Europe inspiration for looks, and interior layout plan something which has characterized its recent models, and started in 2012 with the 510 Sundancer. Still the 650 Fly offers a few surprises to competitors in this size all over the globe. One of these will be its four double cabin layout below with no bunk cabins, and full beam midships located owners stateroom. The living of the L650 Fly presents itself in a split single step area; lounging at entrance, and the fore part having very large open plan galley and dining table. The galley keeps in touch with American demand for a large gourmet area and possible also among the largest in this size type of yacht. The L650 Fly also puts into it the latest wanted details as a settee on the fore deck which can be sun protected, and nice integrated hard top design up top.  Power will be from not so big Cat 1150hp Cat engines with Sea Ray predicting to be able to push the L650 Fly up to max speeds of 30 knots.
