KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 19, 2023) — Sea Ray will feature almost every outboard model from its 2024 lineup at the 64th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), Oct. 25-29.  Among the lineup, Sea Ray's next-generation SPX 210 Outboard will make its North American debut after a successful European premiere earlier this fall, including being named Power Boat of the Year under 7 meters by Moteur Boat Magazine in France. The impressive in-water display will also feature the new SLX 280 Outboard, along with additional Sundancer, SLX, SDX and SPX models. 

FLIBS also designates the start of the brand's 65th anniversary, marking six and a half decades of meticulous craftsmanship since its founding in 1959.

"As we embark on our 65th year of building this iconic brand, we couldn't be more optimistic about the journey ahead," said Keith Yunger, Sea Ray president. "At this show, we'll feature innovative models from our entire lineup including the award-winning, all-new SPX 210 Outboard."

SPX 210 Outboard

Designed to be noticed, the SPX 210 Outboard delivers enhanced technology and elevated design, all in 21 feet. The vessel truly stands out, showcasing a powerful Mercury® 150 FourStroke outboard engine for superior performance and an extensive range of standard amenities. The spacious cockpit includes luxurious seating like the L-shaped bench and convertible port companion lounger, and the plush bow and transom sunpads encourage relaxation under the sun. Additionally, the cockpit has been designed to be self-bailing with drainage channeling that keeps the cockpit dry and makes cleanup easier.

Equipped for all-day thrills, the SPX 210 Outboard is perfect for hosting friends, sharing a casual cruise or experiencing the rush of wakeboarding. For watersports enthusiasts, the boat’s ski tow pylon provides quick attachment for tow lines, and the full-sized ski locker compartment in the cockpit floor secures boards, life jackets and other gear when not in use. Offering simplified control for novices and experienced seafarers alike, the helm is outfitted with a Digital Dash featuring a standard 7″ Simrad® touchscreen display and Mercury Marine® SmartCraft® Connect for intuitive engine monitoring. The vessel can also be upgraded with bundles to complement boaters’ lifestyles.

SLX 280 Outboard

Making its FLIBS debut, the SLX 280 Outboard showcases elegant, head-turning style along with premium features that elevate any on-water adventure. Its upscale cockpit includes optimized spaces with more room, improved seating and seamless storage. The U-shaped bow encourages socializing with lounge-style seating, the optional Power Tower provides expansive sun coverage, and the relaxing transom sunpad offers a convenient integrated cooler and a large compartment to stow watersports gear. For added functionality and flexibility, the cockpit can be enhanced with upgrades, such as a drawer-style refrigerator and an end table with an inductive charging station.

The SLX 280 Outboard is propelled by twin Mercury 250 Verado® engines with Joystick Piloting, SmartCraft Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls and optional Dynamic Running Surface™ for unrivaled power and smooth handling. Captaining the helm is made effortless with the latest technologies, including a dual Digital Dash with 9″ Simrad NSX® touchscreen displays, SmartCraft Connect, Active Trim control & monitoring, and CZone® digital switching. In addition, the vessel can be customized with a variety of bundle upgrades.
