Sea Ray is introducing the new SLX 400, which sleeps four and comes equipped with a fold-down cockpit patio.

The transom entertainment zone features a stereo, sprayer and aft-facing seating overlooking an extended swim platform.

The cockpit comes with a wet bar with a refrigerator, sink and available dual grills. An extendable sunshade deploys electronically to add sun protection. A new fold-down patio opens 90 degrees to expand the cockpit all the way to the water. A sunpad extends the width of the transom and features a converting backrest that opens to face the side patio.

“The SLX 400 was conceived as the ideal entertaining vessel for socializing with large groups of family and friends, no matter the boaters’ preferred on-water fun,” Sea Ray president of sport boats and sport cruisers Brad Anderson said in a statement. “It truly is ‘the Entertainer,’ not only for Sea Ray’s luxury day boat offerings, but also for the market as a whole.”

“Sea Ray continues to push the envelope for performance, design and capability,” said Kevin Reilly, product portfolio director for sport boats and sport cruisers. “We’re proud to introduce a new flagship in our SLX series that embodies Orchestrated Excellence on a whole new level.”

Sea Ray said the new SLX 400 will be on display at the New York Boat Show from Jan. 25-29 and will make additional appearances during the 2017 boat show season.
