Sea Ray’s new SLX-W 230 combines the luxury of its SLX counterparts with some serious engine power—perfect for wake sports. The V-drive propulsion creates the perfect wake for surfers, boarders, and skiers. With the available Mercury Joystick controls, the SLX-W handles like a dream, is capable of making pinpoint turns, and makes docking supremely simple.

The perfect wake comes from the SLX-W’s 2,000 pounds of integrated ballast, WakeTech™ wake-shaping plates, Sea Ray’s acclaimed deep-V hull, and a Mercury V-drive TowSport engine. Each wake is controlled through the Dynamic Display™ screen. Wakes can be customized using presets for riders of differing skill level and can be adjusted on the fly.

While the SLX-W is ideal for wake sports of all kinds, it is also perfect for cruising with family and friends. With an overall length of almost 24 feet, the SLX-W 230 can comfortably seat 13 people. The JL Audio stereo comes standard along with a bow block off door, non-skid flooring, plenty of storage, a Sports Tower with Bimini top, and more. Click here to preview our in-stock model.

Adding the Joystick Piloting for Inboards (JPI) to the SLX-W makes for a smoother, more exciting ride. The boat can be maneuvered forward, backward, side-to-side, and even in a tight circle all with a simple tap of the joystick. See for yourself with this helpful video.

Sea Ray’s Dynamic Display™ is a touchscreen operating system that allows the driver to easily manipulate the WakeTech™ technology. With this system, a swipe of the finger is all that is needed to adjust the ballasts or the angles of the wake-shaping plates, delivering the perfect wakesurfing experience for the rider.

The SLX-W is not a tournament wake sports boat, but it far excels other boats that simply boast a sports tower. It is the perfect boat for the casual wakesurfer, boarder, or skier, and a great option for learning.
