Northern Michigan Boating Destination-Beaver Island

Beaver Island City

Beaver Island is a great destination from any of the Northern Lake Michigan ports. It has a year-round population of about 650 people and is roughly 13 miles long by 6 miles wide. The island offers two marinas, a grocery store, hotels, bars, restaurants, and much more. Beaver Island is also an excellent starting point to visit up to 11 seldom seen light houses and many smaller islands. Some of the more popular activities to be enjoyed are fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, and viewing the scenery. This is a beautiful destination and we hope you enjoy visiting.  Tell them Irish Boat Shop sent you!

Sea Ray Quiet Ride
Quiet Ride is ground breaking new technology from Sea Ray in reducing Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) which creates a luxury boating experience. This comes standard on the 250 SLX and 270 SLX. The proprietary technology uses acoustical forensics, advanced engineering, and sound-attenuation materials to deaden sound and vibration at the source. It's not bolt-on equipment or an afterthought. It's a fundamental change in the build process that only Sea Ray can deliver.


How Quiet Ride Works.

Quiet Ride targets four distinct areas of NVH reduction:



A patented Tuned Transom® from Omni Products Inc. reduces noise and vibration created by engine and drive.



A special inner laminate material in hull, deck and liner reduces noise and vibration from water hitting hull.



The precise engineering and fit and finish of components reduce noise and vibration throughout the boat.



Full-beam bulkheads and acoustical insulation trap and absorb noise and vibration before they can enter the cockpit.



Measuring decibels in 14 areas of a 250 SLX with Quiet Ride, Sea Ray determined sound reductions of more than 10 dB in some areas with an average reduction of 6.8 dB throughout the boat. Quiet Ride represents an overall noise reduction of 25 to 50 percent. In addition, vibration is greatly decreased allowing you to enjoy more comfortable ride.
