Sea Ray will debut the brand-new SLX-R 400e Outboard at CES 2020. 

The “e” in the SLX-R 400e Outboard model name designates a electrification feature – the Fathom e-Power system. Developed by Brunswick, the Fathom system includes a high-capacity lithium-ion battery pack with an intuitive power management system capable of powering all of the boat’s accessory systems and providing boaters with a convenient, smart way to enjoy all of the features of the boat, for a longer, quieter and more eco-friendly day on the water.

The SLX-R 400e Outboard is propelled by triple Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines and features Mercury’s Joystick Piloting for Outboards, NextWave  innovations such as Quiet Ride  and Dynamic Running Surface. Other highlights include an exclusive helm display with Dual Digital Dash NSO evo3 16-inch displays, state-of-the-art systems from Simrad, and a premier FUSION Apollo RA770 marine audio system with a touchscreen display for the ultimate in technologically advanced sound.  The boat also comes standard with the Sea Ray Connect remote monitoring system, powered by NAUTIC-ON.

Enhancing the SLX 400 aesthetic, the SLX-R 400e Outboard showcases upscale design elements including special-edition Shadow metallic gel paint, superior quality upholstery with contrast stitching, red underwater lighting and red accent lighting throughout the vessel. Its layout offers seating for 22 passengers, an abundance of storage space and iconic amenities like the inviting sunpad and fold down swim terrace. Below deck, a generous cabin that sleeps four creates a comfortable space to escape the elements, relax or spend the night.

“Last year, Sea Ray introduced the special-edition SLX-R 350 Outboard,” said Brad Zoelle, Sea Ray vice president of category management. “Due to its success, I am thrilled to announce we have expanded the R package within the SLX family to present the SLX-R 400e Outboard.”

CES 2020 takes place Jan. 7–10, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
