Cruisers 2002 Sea Ray 260 Sundancer

Off Market since Nov 24th 2022

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

The RAINMAKER is a 2002 model SEA RAY 260 Sundancer. She's powered by the standard MERCRUISER 5.0L MPI Bravo III Stern Drive rated at 260 HP.. Please note that this engine was new in 2016 and has only logged under 250 hours to date!

This "260 Sundancer" model has proven to be one of the most popular "pocket cruisers" ever produced and is certainly another success story for SEA RAY. The RAINMAKER is a very nice, clean and low-time example to consider. Her cockpit cushions (2020) and the Dark Blue SUNBRELLA canvas (2019) are also new as noted! The combination of the RAINMAKER's features excellent condition and the new engine in 2016 all make for a very attractive package!

The Owner of the RAINMAKER is presenting her for brokerage sale as a return to "sail" is being actively considered! She is now "on the hard" for Winter Storage. Clients who are looking for just what she's offering are urged to "have a look". You won't be disappointed.

The RAINMAKER is currently located at her Winter Storage facility in Greenwich, CT.



The overall length of 28' includes the standard SEA RAY swim platform for this model.
