When one of the world’s largest builders of fiberglass powerboats adds an entirely new yacht class to its fleet, that’s pretty big news. Such was the case when Sea Ray premiered its L-Class at the Miami International Boat Show in February with the debut of the L650 Fly.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the L-Class. This marks a new era for Sea Ray, a direct result of our desire to shape a better boating future and to offer a new class of yachts above and beyond anything our customers have ever seen,” said Tim Schiek, president of Sea Ray. “The L-Class speaks not only to Sea Ray’s commitment to purposeful innovation, but also to the company’s strong legacy of impeccable craftsmanship, performance and service. It’s a marriage of style and substance, because we firmly believe in the importance of both.”
The L650 Fly is a modern bridge boat driven by CAT marine power and available with optional Sea Keeper gyroscopic stabilizers for reliability and comfort at sea. The yacht is expected to reach top speeds in excess of 30 knots, while its QuietRide technology, a Sea Ray exclusive feature, ensures reduced noise and vibration under way.
Look for more L-Class yachts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October — the L650 Express and the L580 Fly and Express.
