2003 Sea Ray 280 Sundancer
This Sea Ray 280 Sundancer is just the boat youve been waiting for. Beautiful. Sleek. Comfortable. With room to sleep six, shes just right for families who hate to leave the water when darkness falls. Powered by a 496 Magnum and a newBravo III MCM stern drive (fall 2014).
Its no secret that Sea Ray practically invented the express cruiser in its ever-popular Sundancer line. All Sundancers feature sleeping accommodations for two in the forepeak, two more in the pull-out saloon sofa, and two more in the mid-cabin located directly beneath the raised bridge-deck helm.
The 280 shows its a real cruiser right in the transom, where a small trunk has shore-tie connections for phone, TV, and city water. She has a large swim platform , it is 2 longplenty big to handle swimmers, skiers, and wakeboarders of any age.
Once you walk forward through the transom door, youre greeted with a nearly full-beam aft bench seat, and a neat rear-facing seat that flattens down manually yet easily to create a big sunpad for two. Across to starboard theres a compact wetbar with sink and hidden Igloo cooler, and fully forward an L-shaped lounge sits across from the starboard side helm.
She has two wide steps molded into the companionway door that lead through the windshield and on up to the foredeck and a Martin electric anchor windlass ( a big plus).
Upon entering through the companionway, you will be impressed by the sheer luxury of the 280s interior. The forward berth is easily big enough for Mom and Dad, while the dinette has a drop-down table that creates a 52-long berth for a youngster. Another child or even adult can sack out in the midcabin aft, which is 69 long by 40 wide.
The galley has plenty of room to prepare quick snacks or meals and has all you basically need for a weekend away. Equipped with a Microwave, refrigerator and sink with plenty storage and counter space.
