2018 Sea Ray 250 SLX
2018 Sea Ray 250 SLX A high scale describing the level of finishing on the Bowrider market. Today, this has almost become the norm for 25 feet. Hulls have contour lines that look more like shapes than emerge from something as trivial as shapes. The interiors present rich, flexible materials in designer colour pallets. How does a boat like the SLX 250 Sea Ray stand out in such an elegant crowd? Why is all this in detail? Stainless steel handles are packed in a material that you swear was leather. The three-part steering wheel with metal hub is simply elegant.
The bottom of the curved glass pane is straight, well, only the ends, instead of being limited to a metal frame. So cold. There is also the luxury of things that are not easy to see. The Sea Ray’s silent driving technology combines a fine tuned mirror with sound absorbing material – including one that turns sound energy into warmth – to give passengers the pleasure they need for all their senses.
A high-end model like the SLX 250 is equally suitable to be among the family of fun as it is entertaining guests or customers. Either way, the layout accommodates. The bow cockpit invites a couple to stretch out on the 4-foot-long seats. Sitting upright and the seating capacity rises significantly, especially given the additional 3 meters of space created by squaring the cockpit forward perimeter. Captain and co-pilot enjoy individual seats with comfortable flip-up strengths in the main cockpit behind this sexy windshield. At the back, the L-shaped living room stretches from the corner of the port, with a separate 3-metre 4-inch bench on the right side to accommodate the overflow. Between, Sea Ray angles a latch walk-through, a decision that does not sacrifice seat surface as strong as a straight transit.
A 5-foot 2-inch through 2-foot 8-inch sunpads overlooking the deep swim platform awaits sun worshippers when the boat is not in progress. Lift the aft cushion and create a back backrest with five adjustable layers. Wet congestion in the walk-in floor doubles as a cooler to hold cold drinks at hand, and rear-facing loudspeakers provide the melodies. All seats are covered with a multicoloured vinyl film with woven and diamond accent plates, bead welding and durable double stitched seams. Congestion can be found under almost all. The main cockpit seats stand out, but the primary arch seats lift on hinge hinges that remain in the open position to facilitate access. The Sun pad lifts access to a flat storage room and opens the access to the deep port space next to the engine.
At the rudder, the darkest upholstery accents and contrast seams are transferred to the bow, which eliminates glare from the windshield. The construction of our test boat has changed from standard chrome-plated bezels and controls to an elegant, dynamic Sea Ray display ($5,770), a 12-inch colour touch screen. Joint controls, including those for the bilge pump, blower and horn, are grouped in a series of illuminated, brushed-finish, push-button switches. Extra kudos for the sunken inwhales as well as a lipped nook to easily hold objects at hand; It also has a shelf for supporting the forearm of the throttle hand.
Opposite, the port console opens to a 3-foot 8-inch of 2-foot 4-inch thru 4-foot 2-inch head. Its fiberglass interior and oversized floor drain make for easy maintenance. The lockable door has a hinge stop to prevent the door from damaging the control panel when it is folded carelessly. A flat glove compartment on the left side of the door is perfect for cell phones size and includes a handy 12-volt outlet, rubber mats and drain.

Our boot’s 350 hp Mercruiser 6.2 L Bravo Three inboarders responded effortlessly to the input via the digital throttle and slider. With the speed the fuselage of the SLX 250 with its 21-degree deadrise, multikink and unique concave cuts between inner and outer multibend to the rear showed-an agile handling, which by itself excessive turns with speed with indistinct money or speed loss. Time to plane was a quick 4.6 seconds.
We reached 30 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds more, and then reached the subway at 49.2 miles per hour. Interestingly, our boat has been equipped with traditional LENCO finishing strips. Previously, the SLX only offered the option of a dynamic marine tread. Large aluminum plates integrated directly into the tread, DRS uses gyros, accelerometers, GPS data and software to automatically obtain the best running angles, improve acceleration, reduce curve uplift, and even shape up during board sports. However, it turned out that for $3,923 it cost more than some of the customers, after which the designer added traditional bookmarks for 2017.
Looking for a worthy competitor for your comparative purchases? Chaparral 257 SSX ($104,580 at the same power) is identical in size and approach. Chaparral chooses back-to-back love seats aft that lie flat in reclining sun beds, a center traverse, and parallel banks port and starboard. The port bench can slide backward to connect with the rear seat or swivel 45 degrees to form a dining area with a side-mount pedestal table.
