Brief Summary

The 2011 model Sea Ray 500 has been upgraded to Zeus pods with joystick control and so we tested it recently to take her measure. What we discovered -- once again -- was that pod-drive propulsion is far more responsive and sure-footed than is the conventional inboard drive system with rudder steering. We're told that most new 500s are equipped with the Zeus pod drives and only a few are sold with the optional V-drive option.
