Yacht makes its debut on CES with which users can communicate with them via hand gestures and voice commands

High-tech 40-foot yacht debuts at CES with room for 22 people and enables passengers to communicate with it using hand gestures and voice commands

  • The SLX-R 400e is the first boat to be exhibited at CES in Las Vegas
  • The 40-foot yacht can be operated using gestures and voice commands
  • It also has a lithium battery on board to power the engines

It is the first boat on display at CES in Las Vegas, but the ultramodern Sea Ray SLX-R 400e is far from a traditional watercraft.

The 40-foot yacht is equipped with auto-docking capabilities and enables passengers to communicate with it using gestures and voice commands via a new ‘Future Helmet’.

It accommodates 22 people and comes with a lithium battery pack that can power the powerful engines of the vessel.

Steve Langlais, president of Sea Ray, said: “CES offers a unique opportunity to present the new SLX-R 400e to an audience that will truly appreciate its beauty, capabilities and incredible range of new technologies.”

“This groundbreaking new model, which will be available in 2020, shows the kind of unique, advanced technologies that are worth the largest consumer electronics show in the world.”

The yacht is equipped with three supercharged 450R engines and the all-new Fathom e-Power system, which is an environmentally friendly alternative to a fuel generator system.

Sea Ray, a Brunswick brand, noted that the boat has powerful propulsion, raised design elements and the orchestrated excellence of the SLX 400.

Brunswick CEO Dave Foulkes said: “We are very excited to present and exhibit at CES in 2020 as a marine-oriented company.”

‘The consumer’s expectations of sailing are driven by other mobility experiences. That is why our ACES strategy determines our vision for the future of technology in pleasure craft.

There is also a built-in lithium-ion battery that will take the place of gas generators to save energy. Wired explained that the SLX-R only uses the equivalent of 10 Tesla batteries to operate its engines

“CES is a great event because it brings together engineers, technologists and innovators from many industries with the common goal of applying technology to simplify and improve experiences,” Foulkes said.

“The breadth and pace of our product and technology development is unrivaled in the maritime industry and we look forward to sharing our vision in a truly exciting exhibition that demonstrates our commitment to redefining the maritime experience.”
