KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (May 1, 2018) — It’s new. It’s extraordinary. It’s versatile. These are just three of the many reasons the editors of Boating Industry included the Sea Ray SDX 250 Outboard in their prestigious 2018 Top Product list. This award is the latest in a long line of accolades awarded to Sea Ray by the most prominent members of the global boating industry.

To be selected to the fifth annual Boating Industry’s Top Products list each product must have been introduced or significantly updated since January 1, 2017. The 2018 Top Products range from accessories to marine engines to boats; services for the marine industry are also included. Hundreds of products were nominated, but only 50 were awarded this prestigious honor. Winners were selected for their impact on the marine industry, product innovation and how the individual product or service advanced its category.

“The Sea Ray SDX 250 Outboard’s large portside lounge and opposing starboard seating configuration create a unique place for passengers to gather and socialize,” said Boating Industry Editor Tim Hennagir. “The portside walkthrough, with easy bow access to additional opposing seating, is also impressive. Boating Industry was also intrigued by the Sea Ray SDX 250 Outboard’s transom design, which preserves swim platform space while allowing for outboard propulsion.”
