KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Feb. 14, 2013 With quality craftsmanship, plenty of space and a premium propulsion system, the all-new Sea Ray® 240 Sundeck® Outboard will maximize any boaters enjoyment of a day on the water. Featuring a 200XL Mercury® Verado four-stroke engine, the Sea Ray 240 Sundeck pairs a smooth, quiet ride with luxurious appointments.
The release of the 240 Sundeck as an outboard model is part of Sea Rays Next Wave initiative which is an intensive two-year commitment to enact major innovation across all Sea Ray platforms. Our goal is nothing short of reimagining the boating experience. With a deliberate focus on product, this initiative aims to elevate Sea Ray in the minds of consumers and set a new precedent for industry leadership, said Andy Graves, president of Brunswick Boat Group.
What makes a Sea Ray product worthwhile is not only the power beneath the product, but the beneficial contribution of every single appointment, creating a desirable vessel that offers luxury and comfort the 240 Sundeck Outboard is no different. The 240 Sundeck Outboard provides boaters an enclosed head compartment with a lockable door, a standard large cockpit floor plan for additional mobility, and increased seating capacity. Deep-bow seating, a convertible port-side seat, an L-shaped port lounge and an aft staging seat keep everyone enjoying the outdoors in maximum comfort.
The SmartCraft® instrumentation, featuring glass lenses, low-glare blue night lighting and chrome bezels, enables the captain to remain in full control of the 240 Sundeck Outboard at all times. An optional flush-mount Garmin GPS is also available. Simply put, the 240 Sundeck Outboard motor and instrumentation make it possible to glide over the open water with the greatest of ease.
In the cockpit, standard features such as a Sony stereo with waterproof speakers, a bucket seat with flip-up thigh rise, a carry-on cooler, beverage holders integral armrests, LED lighting and stainless steel grab handles provide comfort and enjoyment for all. Meanwhile, passengers benefit from a beach-boarding ladder with an integral hatch and a concealed stainless steel four-step ladder and a swim platform with a concealed stainless steel swim ladder.
Individual options include a battery charger, a head interior upgrade, water sports tower and a trailer to suit ones environment. Available in Arctic white, black, Sea Ray blue, burgundy, patina and red hull colors, the boats sleek exterior is eye-catching, highly functional and customizable.
The key differentiator for this Sundeck is the outboard engine offering. The outboards deliver a powerful yet smooth and quiet ride. The outboard design provides the ability to trim the engines to maximize efficiency and improve shallow water maneuvering. The ability to trim the engines from the water also reduces saltwater corrosion and could eliminate the need for a boat lift. The 240 Sundeck Outboard can be equipped with the standard 4-cylinder 200XL Mercury Verado engine or upgraded to the 6-cylinder 250XL or 300XL Mercury Verado.
