The SLX-W is designed for wake surfing.

Sea Ray’s SLX-W will be at the 2017 Surf Expo, a board sports and beach lifestyle trade show that will take place Sept. 7-9 in Orlando.

“Surf Expo is the ideal setting to highlight the SLX-W’s many outstanding features and capabilities,” Brad Anderson, president and general manager of Sea Ray Sport Boats and Sport Cruisers, said in a statement.

“Our goal in developing this boat was to provide customers with an exciting new choice: a luxury wake sports boat that delivers incredible performance and enjoyment with nothing sacrificed. It’s truly the most versatile boat in the market, equally well suited to wake sports, coving and cruising.”

Partnering with MarineMax, Sea Ray will have representatives on hand to answer questions about the boat and conduct demonstrations of its 2,000-pound integrated ballast system and patent-pending wake-surf fins.

The size and shape of the wake can be controlled by the boat’s Dynamic Display touchscreen. For easier docking, the boat is equipped with Mercury Joystick Piloting for inboards. The boat is powered by a MerCruiser V-drive TowSport 6.2L engine.
