See it first: Sea Ray's latest model, a 23-foot pocketcruiser...

Sea Ray has released drawings of its new model, the 235 Weekender, as well as details of three different ways to customise the design.

The new model can be adapted for fishing trips, cooking and eating on board, and an extra cushion can turn the lounge into a sunpad.

The 23-foot pocketcruiser comes with a MerCruiser 4.3L MPI Alpha I sterndrive with power steering and power trim as standard, but a diesel option will be available soon.

The basic model comes with a pair of UV-resistant bucket seats with flip-up, thigh-rise bolsters and a stern bench seat in the cockpit. The cabin can be converted into a sleeping space and the seats cover the toilet to create more space within, and storage is available in the V-berth (as well as in the cockpit floor and side panels).

But Sealine says it is the customisation options that make this model unique.

The fishing package incorporates fishing features such as two built-in tackle drawers, cockpit coaming pads, a cutting board on top of the motor box, six rod holders in the gunnels and special weather-resistant bucket seats with removable cushions.

The Overnighter Galley package comes with a built-in fridge and a cockpit galley with a sink, tap and water tank, a separate storage area and a single-burner cooker.
