Feb 23, 2021

Sea Ray’s award-winning SLX 400 Outboard is beginning a new chapter in luxury boating with a brand-new engine option featuring the latest in legendary propulsion from Mercury®. The SLX 400 Outboard will soon be available with the newly released twin 7.6L V12 600hp Verado outboard engines. Offered as an optional engine upgrade, the 600hp Verado outboard delivers extraordinary range and power encouraging boaters to venture farther to new destinations.
 
With reimagined performance from Mercury, the SLX 400 Outboard will leverage the unwavering strength of the outboard segment’s first V12 powerhead. Mercury crafted the 600hp Verado outboard engine to deliver superior horsepower and performance, in a surprisingly compact package. An innovative steerable gearcase enhances handling and control, particularly at low speeds, and provides a smoother, more refined driving experience. The two-speed automatic transmission doles out torque and acceleration in first gear to get boats on plane quickly, then silently shifts to second for efficient cruising and an impressive top speed. Combined with the most sophisticated digital controls, including Mercury’s Next Gen Digital Throttle & Shift system, and unmatched sound-dampening technology, the features of the 600hp Verado outboard engine elevate the standards of premium design and engineering.
 
“The 600hp Verado, the newest engine advancement from Mercury, was a natural fit as a new power option for the SLX 400 Outboard,” said Steve Langlais, Sea Ray president. “The boat’s legacy as the complete entertainer has now begun a new chapter complemented by the 600hp Verado outboard engine’s astounding power, efficiency-enhancing features, effortless handling and whisper-quiet operation to give boaters an even better on-water experience.”
 
In addition to the new optional twin Mercury 600hp Verado outboard engines, the yacht-certified SLX 400 Outboard offers Joystick Piloting and ample entertainment zones. Its best-in-class layout provides seating for 22 passengers, an abundance of storage space and iconic amenities like the inviting sunpad and fold-down swim terrace. Below deck, a generous cabin that sleeps four creates a comfortable space to escape the elements, relax in the air conditioning or spend the night when staying aboard. Other highlights include an advanced Dual Digital Dash™ helm with Simrad® NSO evo3 16-inch touchscreen displays, a premium Fusion® Apollo RA770 audio system, Quiet Ride™ featuring Tuned Transom® and optional Dynamic Running Surface™.
 
The Mercury 7.6L V12 600hp Verado outboard engine option for the SLX 400 Outboard will be available with model year 2022 production, starting Q321. For more information about Sea Ray, and to view the complete lineup, visit SeaRay.com.
