From The Power Boat Guide

The Sea Ray 480 Motor Yacht is a throwback to the era of the flushdeck motor yachts that dominated the market in the 70’s and 80’s.

Practical in design and more sociable than flybridge yachts, the 480 allows owners and guests to enjoy the ride together in the comfort and security of the enclosed aft deck. Below decks, the comfortable interior is roomy and luxurious. A long U-Shaped Ultraleather lounge dominates the salon with its recessed lighting, elliptical windows, and built in entertainment center. Both the galley and dinette are open to the salon and there are two staterooms forward, one with a double berth and the other stretching beneath the salon sole, with twins. Note that a washer/dryer combo unit is fitted in a utility space underneath the galley stairs.

Manufacturer Model Description

The Sea Ray 480 Motor Yacht features quiet, twin Cummins engines providing a stealthy departure (no wake, of course). For entertaining, the large aft deck has a wet bar with an ice maker, as well as a Clarion AM/FM/CD with six-disc changer, four speakers, and a remote control. A fiberglass hardtop protects passengers from the elements, and textured steps lead to the swim platform with concealed stainless steel three-step ladder. The walkways leading to the foredeck are wide and textured for safe passage, and a cushion turns the area into a large sun pad. Down below, a full-size bed with innerspring mattress is the focal point of the forward stateroom. A portside storage cabinet with drawers, and a starboard full-length hanging locker with lights and beveled mirrors, provide storage. There’s also a 13-inch TV/VCR/Radio combo, as well as private access to the main head compartment. Two acquaintances can stay quite comfortably in the twin berths of the guest stateroom. Filler cushions will convert the berths into a king-size bed. The forward head compartment features a VacuFlush head, a solid-surface vanity countertop with sink, a Grohe faucet, and a shower with seat, adjustable shower wand, and removable teak grate. The aft master stateroom features a queen-size bed, a full-length cedar-lined hanging locker, a built-in nightstand, a large built-in storage unit with storage shelves and drawers, as well as a 20-inch TV/VCR/Radio combo. The starboard vanity with sink and plenty of storage, separates the private head with VacuFlush toilet from the private shower with seat and adjustable shower wand. The galley of the 480 Motor Yacht makes wonderful use of space with a custom molded fiberglass countertop, sink with Grohe faucet, recessed three-burner stove, microwave/convection oven, coffeemaker, and a refrigerator/freezer. A washer/dryer combo is located in the step storage compartment.
