When an active family loves water sports, they generally want to share their good times with friends. That's where the SDX 290 Outboard comes in. It's destined to be one of 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 Outboard Specs

Craftsmanship

Joystick Piloting

Get on the stick

The Joystick Piloting system puts control of the SDX 290 Outboard (only available with 250 hp option) in the palm of your hand. Tight fairways and docks are a breeze, with easy movement in any direction, spinning in place, and Skyhook for effortless station-keeping. So simple a child can do it. Simple for adults, too.

Axius Control

Robotic-built Precision

Beautifully precise

No one's perfect. That's why Sea Ray uses robots in its manufacturing process. Whether spraying gel coat or fiberglass, or drilling or cutting for hardware placement, robots hit their marks with incredible accuracy every time. This impacts material placement and quantity, providing maximum strength and beauty for minimal weight. When human error is eliminated, every yacht has seamless fit and alignment, a tighter build with more exact tolerances and greatly improved performance. No more flexing and squeaks; just a yacht of highest-level quality.

Robotic-built Precision

Strength & Durability

Time will tell

You won't be able to see the watertight compounds that bind the hull and stringer to reduce flex. Nor the precision framing system used in production to ensure proper alignment. Nor the detailed construction process that ensures strength and durability. But you will experience it, after thousands of water hours, when the Sea Ray proves its longevity.

Strength and Durability

Performance Multiplier

Peak performance

Never waste another second on the water. Experience optimal tracking, handling and shock absorption on the SDX 290 Outboard, thanks to its perfectly balanced weight and hull, and its sculpted strakes. And with reliable Mercury® power behind you, you'll feel the unmatched ride quality, performance and efficiency.

Warranty

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.
