The owner informs me that this lovely power boat was built to a standard lloyds spec by Searay USA. These boats are very popular and renown for their sea keeping qualities and performance. This Sea Ray was taken out of the water in 2013 to have her anodes changed and anfi-foul application.

Very good accommodation and a modern airy feel. The owner installed cabin heating last year too. The saloon converts to a generous double berth and there is a good sized aft cabin. The interior has a good quality feel to it.

Broker's Comments

The Sea Ray 280 Sundancer is one of the JD Powers and Associates Best Boats in the Express Cruiser category.
Sea Ray boats are regarded as a prestige brand due to their high build quality ability to deliver big performance even in rougher waters.
This is the “perfect” cruising boat for a couple or a family. It is 4 berth, but can sleep 2 young children in with the smaller saloon made up. You will have no trouble getting up on plane with the lovely Volvo KAD 44 engine purring away.
This boat has had her engine serviced, anodes changed and been anti fouled November 2013. She also benefits from a 4Kw inverter and cabin heating which were installed in 2013. To complete the package there is also a dinghy and outboard that were purchased a year ago.
