Very well maintained and updated this is an outstanding, low hour example of the very popular Sea Ray 540 Sundancer! The Sea Ray 540 is a big boat for 54 inside with luxurious accommodations that are still very impressive. Interior was designed and built for comfort including the ultra-leather sofa that converts electrically into a slide out double bed. The master stateroom is amidships with a queen size bed and private head. The forward stateroom has a full size berth, good closet space and a combination washer-dryer. Both heads have real, separate stall showers built for full size people. Galley is open to the main salon and storage is everywhere. All cabinetry finished in high gloss cherry that may never go out of style. Cockpit has room for a small crowd between 2 huge L shaped settees and helm seating for several more. Air conditioned helm area is very well laid out for the captain yet still part of the party!
