MIAMI 2014 VIDEO: Sea Ray rolls out new luxury motoryacht

Posted on Written by Chris Landry

searay0215MIAMI — Sea Ray launched a fleet of luxury motoryachts Friday at the Yacht & Brokerage Show with the introduction of the L650 Fly, a two-bridge vessel powered with twin Caterpillar diesels mated to a joystick system by Glendinning.

The large flybridge serves not only as a place to pilot the vessel, but also as a social gathering spot for passengers — at anchor or while under way, said Ron Berman, vice president of product development and engineering for Brunswick, Sea Ray’s parent company.

Sea Ray will build its L-Class yachts with a “higher grade of everything,” said Berman, such as quartz galley countertops, innovative drawer latches and high-end hardware and fabrics.

L-Class customers will have access to special services and equipment such as customer service phone lines, prioritized remote service, a sales concierge to optimize the buying procedure, captain training and a three-year bow-to-stern warranty that includes engines and components. The L-Class is “not just about the boat,” Sea Ray president Tim Schiek said. “It’s a new approach to the market that includes product along with a completely unique sale process and post-purchase experience.”

Look for three more L-Class yachts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show — the L650 Express and the L580 Fly and Express, Berman said.

The L650 Fly is available with a Seakeeper gyro stabilization system. The flybridge includes multiple seating areas and a “sunpad playpen.” She houses a full-beam master suite and two additional staterooms. A galley-up design melds seamlessly with a large living area full of natural light.

Sea Ray will introduce 11 more models in 2014, Berman said. It introduced eight models in 2013.

The twin 1,136-hp Cats will deliver speeds in excess of 30 knots, according to the builder.

    Congratulations Sea Ray!! The L650 Fly is also available with the SureShade retractable sunshade system on the upper bridge – the Sea Ray is the first OEM to fully integrate the shade at the upper bridge level – we’re so proud to be part of this promising new series!
