    1. Sea Ray's Innovations

    The Sea Ray SLX™ 400 defines technology at its peak and was the winner of an NMMA Award. In addition to offering an enhanced on-the-water experience with a fold-down swim terrace and a table in the bow that converts to a sunpad, this revolutionary model has wearable fabs that can shut down an engine or track a passenger through the 1st Mate system from Mercury Marine. Simard Multifunction displays with Simrad evo3 technology enables on-board electronic data from Mercury engines, GPS, sonar, radar, and other devices to show up on this full HD touchscreen. In addition, Dynamic Running Surface technology, which controls the pitch and roll of the boat automatically while moving, is another forward-thinking example from Sea Ray.

    2. Mercury Verado® 600hp

    Besides being extremely quiet and smooth due to its Advanced Midsection (AMS), Mercury amped up its Verado 600hp engine with more distinct innovative features. This impressive outboard encompasses an automatic two-speed transmission, which smoothly shifts with remarkable power and is the first of its kind. It has an independent, steerable gearcase, which allows the engine to be stationary above the water, while electro-hydraulic controls enable it to move below. In addition, it has contra-rotating propellers, which power the boat fast and efficiently while saving fuel at midrange speeds. In short, with the upgraded technology, this engine will get you far fast and gives users optimal control when docking.
