Dynamic Running Surface

On the level

Dynamic Running Surface™

Sea Ray's brilliant Grip 6 hull now gets the perfect assist from Dynamic Running Surface™. Large, triangular planes in the hull create an articulated running surface that improves acceleration, reduces bow rise and keeps the boat at optimal trim, no matter the load. An option on the SLX 230, DRS also allows skiers and wakeboarders to define presets—letting you shape the perfect wake height.

Count on Sea Ray’s 5-Year Factory Warranty

One of the primary benefits of a new boat purchase is the freedom to relax, to put aside worry and focus on savoring the well-lived life on the water. Accordingly, Sea Ray is proud to offer a stellar 5-year factory warranty. This program, Sea Ray SURPA5S, provides 5 years of enhanced coverage on every new sport boat in the Sea Ray lineup. The end result? Exceptional peace of mind.

All 2017 gas-powered Sea Ray sport boats (both sterndrive and outboard) feature Sea Ray’s 5-year, bow-to-stern factory warranty on the boat and its components from defects in materials and workmanship. The engine is covered for the same 5-year period, using a warranty backed by Mercury and Brunswick Product Protection. In addition to the 5-year bow-to-stern coverage, all sport boats also have a Limited Lifetime Structural Hull Warranty.

Applies only to new 2015, 2016 and 2017 Sea Ray sport boats built in the USA or Mexico. See your Sea Ray dealer and the Sea Ray Express Limited Warranty for complete details. Alternate engine terms apply to diesel-powered sport boats.
