SLX-W 230 Specs


WakeTech™ Wake Shaping

Making waves

The SLX-W's awesome surfing wakes come courtesy of the boat's 2,000 pounds of integrated ballast, proprietary WakeTech™ wake-shaping plates, Sea Ray's high-performance deep-V hull, and a V-drive TowSport engine from Mercury that moves the propeller farther forward beneath the hull while maintaining cockpit space. Every wake parameter – size, shape, left/right break – is controlled through The SLX-W's Dynamic Display™ screen, with numerous presets for different riders and easy adjustments on the fly. Wakeboarders, water skiers and other riders will love wakes customized just for them, as well.


Joystick Piloting

Joystick Piloting

Pinpoint precision

Absolute control is at your fingertips with the available Mercury® Joystick Piloting for Inboards (JPI) system. Boaters of all skill levels will appreciate the easier, more intuitive command that JPI provides. Maneuver forward, aft, side-to-side or even spin in place with a simple nudge. Picking up fallen surfers is safe, quick and easy – and, even in the tightest situations, docking is a breeze.

Heaven is in the details

Details matter. For it is the little touches, the rich materials, the permeating quality that sets Sea Rays apart from other brands' boats. On the SLX-W 230, excellence is found in the robotically applied exterior gel coating. It's the double top stitch on all the upholstery. Excellence is found in the seams between parts of the boat, where tolerances are incredibly fine for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Because details matter.

Metallic Paint

Quick as a flash

The SLX-W 230 draws the eye. To its incredible surfing wake, and to the fun being had on board, but it's something more. Because the SLX-W 230 is the only Sea Ray model to come in Metal Flake colors. A rad boat deserves a rad paint job. So go ahead and tell everyone things will be getting gnarly.

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.

Throw your weight around

For kicking up ripping waves, the SLX-W 230 can't be beat. The boat's easily controlled ballast system is entirely contained within the hull, out of sight and out of mind until you want to crank up the size of your curl. It's a far more sophisticated ballast solution than the space-robbing ballast bags you see on most tow boats. And adjusting the amount and location of ballast takes just a finger swipe on the touchscreen display.


Sports Tower

Sports Tower

Elevated fun

The SLX-W 230 is more than just a surf monster. It's also great for wakeboarding, water skiing and tubing, and for those a sports tower is a must. It helps with unweighting for catching air, and it just looks cool. The functional and stylish tower folds forward for transport and storage, plus it adds board racks that show off your arsenal, and optional audio speakers to keep everyone, including your surfers, grooving.

Sound System

Play it loud

The SLX-W 230 comes with a rocking JL Audio stereo to perfectly tune your boating days. Handy remotes, powerful amplifiers and premium woofers and speakers – including available can speakers on the optional sports tower – add resonance and depth to ideal days on the water. Whether coving and floating away a beautiful afternoon or kicking up an endless wave for hours of surfing, the right music and the SLX-W's great sound will ensure everyone is in the right mood all day long.

Swim Platform

Surfer on deck

The SLX-W 230 is a water-focused boat. Appropriately, the boat's swim platform eases the transition between dry and wet. As a staging area for surf or boarding sessions, the SLX-W 230's massive platform is unbeatable. Soft SeaDek matting protects tender feet, knees and hands, and protects precious boards. An optional submersible platform or a flip-down swim step creates a great half-submerged seat or allows kids to scramble in and out for cannonball contests. A handy remote makes it easy to switch up the soundtrack when it's time to dial things up a notch.

Adrenaline spiker

SLX-W 230 does the calm thing perfectly: settle into a cove or enjoy a peaceful sunset cruise. But this boat is really at its best amping up an afternoon with surfers, boarders or skiers enjoying its wake. The V-drive engine places the prop at the perfect spot for a consistent pull, and the WakeTech underwater gear and integral ballast system deliver the wave of the future for endless surfing sessions. Using the touchscreen interface, drivers can personalize the wake shape, size and orientation for perfect purpose-built launching or smooth carving, and can do it on the fly.

Built For Fun

Power Packed

More power to you

The durable and reliable MerCruiser 6.2L ECT* TowSport V-Drive Inboard lifts the SLX-W 230 beyond the expected. Raw-water cooled and featuring Mercury's Digital Throttle & Shift, this powerful engine delivers consistent performance at all speeds. A convenient V-drive keeps the block far back in the boat for space and balance, but moves the prop forward for safety and the perfect tow.


Ride Quality

Smooth running

Based on the performance-forward SLX Grip 6 hull, SLX-W 230 runs beautifully in all conditions. With a deeper V than most tow boats, the SLX-W can cruise through rougher waters, without the hull slap or outright pounding that plague traditional tow boats. And with Sea Ray's available innovative Dynamic Running Surface ensuring perfect trim at all times, you don't have to constantly adjust trim and balance for the perfect ride. The SLX-W 230's ride is a difference that has to be experienced before choosing your next sport boat.
