The new Sea Ray 510 Fly makes her European debut at 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival: there’s plenty of innovation in the Sport Yachts range of the American boatbuilder.
The French boat show was the stage for a comeback in style: Sea Ray gets back to Europe. Among the models to debut, here’s the 510 Fly, straight from USA where she had her christening at Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The new philosophy of Sea Ray 510 Fly
Sea Ray marks an important step with this 50-feeter: the boatyard is carrying on this Sport Yachts lineup many elements of the yachting universe. In designing the 510 Fly then, the target was to maximize space, as is clearly understandable with a tour of the boat.
“With Sea Ray 510 Fly, the main focus has been accomplished both on the large flybridge and in the two decks – explains Luca Brancaleon, Director of International Sport Yachts and Yacht Sales. There’s a proper full-beam master room, with large windows for a great sea view.
In total, we have three cabins and two bathrooms, sticking to the best ergonomics criteria: you can tell by the few level changes for the floors, which avoid to constantly step up and down. In addition, the interior décor for Europe is bright and elegant, to allow light in and underline every available space”.
A spacious and complete “American” galley is the center of gravity of the main deck, connecting the salon with the helm station. The latter boasts and ergonomic seat with excellent visibility. The outdoor areas sport plenty of space, with a versatile sun deck hosting two tables, sun bed and a second galley wet bar. A sturdy hard top is available as an option and provides shade and shelter, also giving the 510 the look of a big yacht, underlining the quality and engineering that Sea Ray put in this project.
Innovation yet tradition: Sea Ray 510 Fly is capable of facing rough sea with good performance. The boat is powered by twin Cummins QSC8.3, diesel, 600HP each, with the choice to couple them to a traditional shaft drive or to innovative pods. In both cases the joystick is available for easy maneuvers. The shaft-driven version can also feature a crew cabin, accessible from the cockpit, offering full headroom and a heads.
