The SLX 280 delivers a higher level of excellence that you’ll see and feel. Upscale styling and a gorgeously sculpted hull make an instant impression while slicing through the water. Craftsmanship is apparent down to the last stitch. Cutting-edge technology makes a statement at every turn, thanks to innovations like Dynamic Display and Quiet Ride™, featuring Tuned Transom®.
