Knoxville, Tenn. - Beautiful. Sleek. Ultra-comfortable. These are words that suit the 280 Sundancer to a tee, and with good reason. With impeccable styling and masterful use of space, Sea Ray has managed to pack as much fun and functionality as you can handle into just over 31 feet.
Like all Sundancers, the raised-helm, mid-cabin design creates a spacious cockpit for entertaining. Guests can relax on a portside aft-facing seat that folds converts into a sun pad. Plus there's a convenient foldaway aft bench seat that raises with the gas-assisted engine hatch. At the helm, the captain has a swivel-bucket seat with flip-up thigh-rise bolster for when the action gets too exciting to take sitting down. Gorgeous burl accents highlight the instrument panel, which features Sea Ray's SmartCraft® diagnostics, illuminated waterproof switch pad with ISO symbols and more.
Of course Sea Ray included every amenity for entertaining in the cockpit, like a carry-on cooler with designated storage, beverage holders, a wet bar with sink and built-in cooler, indirect lighting and plenty of storage. Guests can also enjoy the water easily and safely with a walk-thu transom door and standard extended swim platform with concealed ladder.
Below, the inviting cabin has stylish fabrics, cherry Formica® cabinetry and plush deep-pile carpet. To maximize space, the large four-person dinette converts quickly to a bed. Just stow the dinette table and insert the filler cushions. The cabin gets plenty of natural light courtesy of a large translucent deck hatch with sky screen cover and four opening portlights. In the mid-stateroom, a double bunk provides the perfect sleeping area for kids or extra storage space when not in use. Keeping the kids entertained is easy when you choose an optional 15-inch TV/DVD combination. For optimum sound, the 280 Sundancer cabin features a standard Clarion® stereo system with six-disc CD changer, amplifier and digital cockpit remote control. Or if you'd like a state-of-the-art stereo system, you can add a premium Polk/MOMO system with upgraded component speakers, amplifiers, subwoofer and transom remote.
An easy-to-clean fiberglass countertop is only the beginning of the conveniences found in the galley. Sea Ray also included a refrigerator, recessed single-burner stove, microwave and plenty of upper and lower cabinet storage. And to demonstrate how Sea Ray finds usable space everywhere, the galley trash receptacle is located under the entry step. The 280 Sundancer comes with a fully-enclosed stand-up fiberglass head with vanity, VacuFlush® head with holding tank and pullout shower sprayer.
Comfort and aesthetics notwithstanding, when it comes to performance, the 280 Sundancer is all business with a standard 496 Magnum® Bravo® III MCM sterndrive. Standard technical equipment includes an automatic bilge pump, electric bilge blowers, power steering, power tilt and trim, dual battery switch, shore power, even a freshwater washdown with cockpit shower and dockside water inlet.
Sea Ray's 280 Sundancer boasts a long list of options from power plant upgrades to a camper canvas package. You can even choose a colored hull in blue, pewter or black with stainless-steel thru-hull fittings (bottom paint option is also required). You also receive a full membership in the Sea Ray Owners Club, where you receive special benefits and a chance to earn a discount on your next Sea Ray. The 280 Sundancer from Sea Ray - beautiful, sleek, ultra-comfortable. That pretty much says it all.
