Project: Sea Ray SLX 400

Sea Ray introduces the all new SLX 400 a new flagship of the series which features deluxe amenities including a game-changing new fold-down cockpit patio.  This new SLX 400  encourages owners and their guests to enjoy epic days on the water. The SLX 400 presents itself as the entertainer for large social scenes and an inviting oasis for all-day cruising. The SLX 400 conveniently can also comfortably sleeps four adults below deck.  Boaters will be hard pressed to find anything this boat can’t do or store. For those into stand-up paddle boarding, you’ll find enclosed storage for two full-sized boards. A storage compartment underneath the transom lounge holds deck chairs and additional items, while clever carry-on bags hold towels and belongings safely out of the fray.  For entertaining, the expansive cockpit is a party waiting to happen: a well-appointed wet bar with refrigerator, sink and available dual grills makes for happier happy hours, while the transom entertainment zone featuring a stereo, sprayer, and comfy aft-facing seating overlooking the integral extended swim platform allows passengers and swimmers to interact more naturally, and clean up more easily after climbing out of the water. An extendable sunshade deploys electronically to add sun protection.  But the most remarkable cockpit feature is the innovative new fold-down patio, a brilliantly designed wing of the hull that opens 90 degrees to expand the cockpit all the way to the water. A plush sun-pad extends the width of the transom and features a converting backrest that opens to face the side patio.  The bow is another social zone that accommodates a crowd with ease. A row of forward touring seats features arm rests and convenient cup holders, with additional forward benches that surround a stylish bow table, which also converts into a sun pad. A bow sunshade stretches over this zone too, providing additional shade. Innovations found throughout the SLX 400 include Axius joystick control, for effortless docking, and proprietary Quiet Ride technology, enhancing the boating experience by dramatically reducing noise, vibration and harshness for easier conversation, even at speed. Intuitive command comes courtesy of an advanced Digital Dash, featuring standard twin Raymarine glass displays while Dynamic Running Surface boosts precision and stability, automatically optimizing running attitude and trim.
