The starboard helm console locker was entertainment central with an MP3 auxiliary port as well as an iPod connection. There's also dedicated stowage for the removable cockpit table. To port, the head compartment has 3'8" of seated headroom.
Sea Ray also put some good thought into the 230 Sundeck's bottom design, which featured three strakes per side and a triangle-like flared aft end to the inner pair. These provide all the lift you need to carry the extra weight that deckboats are expected to heft in passengers and gear. The boat planed at less than 25 mph, which means you could pull wakeboarders as well as younger kids on tubes. My test boat pancaked lake chop and in turns showed it could come around quickly to pick up a downed skier or boarder. And when he's back onboard, he'll have no problem putting away his gear.
