Boating Tips: Sea Ray Ergonomics

Welcome to Boating Tips with MarineMax! In this week’s Boating Tips, Captain Nick and Joey Sharpe, Senior Brand Product Manager at Sea Ray discuss the smartly designed Sea Ray SLX 260. Ask your questions, make comments, and learn a thing or two about your favorite outdoor activity.

From the bow to the stern this boat is designed for comfort, relaxation and entertaining.


The stern features a sunpad large enough for two people to comfortably lounge. Built into the pad is a charger with two USB ports as well as a music control station. The music adapter is even angled such that you can easily manipulate the dial and see the screen without having to bend over. 


The stern sun pad also contains two cupholders. There are 17 cupholders throughout the boat. Sea Ray really thought of everything with this design as the cupholders have built in LED lights and are strategically placed within easy reach of all the seating in the vessel. 

Cockpit and Bow Seating 

All of the seating in this Sea Ray was designed to not only provide quality lumbar support, but also so that a smaller than average female or a larger than average male can both sit and respectively feel comfortable. The seats are also designed to drain away from storage and to simplify cleaning. 

The port and starboard seats in the cockpit area are able to swivel and slide in multiple different directions so that those seated are never far from the conversation. 

In the bow, you’ll find forward seating with inboard armrests and outboard grab rails to make you feel snug and comfortable.
