When an active family loves water sports, they generally want to share their good times with friends. That's where the SDX 290 comes in. It's among the most luxurious deck boats in its class. Its deep-V hull and wide "carried-forward" beam let you seat more friends in the oversized bow and huge cockpit, yet maintain a smooth, stable ride and great handling at high speed.

SDX 290 Specs

Craftsmanship

Robotic-built Precision

Down to the last inch

Sea Ray’s precise engineering and design ensure each model delivers the best experience. For example, incorrect motor placement—by even just a tenth of an inch—causes major disturbances in the smoothness and straightness of the ride. Sea Ray uses cutting-edge robotic equipment that measures engine placement to within four-thousandths of an inch for the best performance in sport boats. Exacting gelcoat and fiberglass placement ensures maximum quality at the lightest weight. You’ll feel the quality of Sea Ray’s craftsmanship every time every time you hit the water.

Robotic-built Precision

Strength & Durability

Made to last

You won’t be able to see the watertight compounds that bind the hull and stringer to reduce flex. Nor will you be able to see the precision framing system used in production to ensure the mold’s proper alignment. You can’t see the detailed construction process that ensures strength and durability. But after hours and hours enjoying your SDX 290, you’ll see it’s built to last.

Strength and Durability

Performance Multiplier

Ace performer

Every component of a SDX 290’s hull, from the boat’s weight and balance to its sculpted strakes, is designed for optimal tracking, handling and shock absorption—so that no power goes to waste and not a single second of enjoyment is lost. And with reliable MerCruiser power behind you, the ride quality, performance and efficiency of the SDX 290 is unmatched.

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.
