Sea Ray Provided Description

The Sea Ray 380 Sundancer has sleek lines with durable construction. On the inside, the 380 Sundancer's cabin is spacious and elegant. Plenty of natural light is provided by three translucent deck hatches with interior sky screen covers. Everywhere in the cabin, luxurious appointments abound: handcrafted wood trim, tastefully coordinated fabrics, indirect lighting, deep-pile marine-grade carpet, and contemporary granite-colored countertops. The large salon area converts from a practical dinette to extra sleeping space by stowing the table and opening up the convertible sleeper sofa. The 380 Sundancer features standard entertainment centers in the salon and forward stateroom, complete with TV - VCR - radio combinations, antenna, and TV coax to dockside. For music lovers, a Clarion AM-FM digital cassette stereo with six-disc CD changer, subwoofer, eight speakers, and a cockpit remote control comes standard as well. The private forward stateroom of the Sea Ray 380 Sundancer provides ideal accommodations with its full-size bed and matching linens, plentiful storage, and sliding privacy door. In the mid stateroom, a plush sofa quickly converts to an extra bed with the flip of a switch. The head and vanity area features a VacuFlush head with holding tank. Even the galley is equipped for easy living with a two-burner electric stove, coffee maker, microwave, and a large refrigerator. Abovedeck, cockpit seating is carefully arranged for maximum passenger and storage room with a fully adjustable helm seat (with flip-up thigh-rise) and a roomy companion seat with its own storage compartment below. A large U-shaped seat with sunpad and table creates an ideal gathering spot or a haven for sunbathing. Rich burl instrument panels, a tan gelcoated dash, custom Sea Ray backlit instrumentation with low-glare blue night lighting, hydraulic steering with a tilt wheel, plus standard Raytheon electronics, make the helm the best seat on board. Other conveniences include snap-in carpet liner, a complete dockside power system, and a cockpit ice maker plus a wetbar tucked into the portside panel. Beneath the electrically operated engine hatch, the Sea Ray 380 Sundancer is powered by twin 380 horsepower MerCruiser V-drives for a ride that's as confident as it is smooth. To assure safety and reliability, the 380 Sundancer comes with a standard remote start generator, an engine synchronizer gauge, and halon system. There are engine alarms and a digital LCD systems monitor for engine diagnostics and pump monitoring at the helm. Additional features on the Sea Ray 380 Sundancer include a swim platform with a neatly concealed swim ladder, standard windlass, fresh water washdown, 19,000 BTU air conditioner and heater, integrated fender storage in the transom wall and more. Underwater, Sea Ray's quality continues with manganese-bronze rudders and struts, seacocks on all fittings, as well as dripless shaft logs with an extra seal carrier kit.

Power Boat Guide Write-up

The top-selling big express of her day, the 380 Sundancer took Sea Ray market dominance to the next level following her introduction in 1999. With more beam than her European counterparts and considerably more freeboard, none of the imports could match the 380’s huge interior with its spacious salon, home-sized galley (note full-size refrigerator), and generous headroom. A pocket door separates the forward stateroom from the salon while a curtain provides privacy for the mid-cabin area. The earth-tone decor is a mix of cherry cabinets, leather upholstery, and premium appliances. Topside, the cockpit is dominated by a big U-shaped lounge aft of the helm. The double companion seat is a nice touch on a boat this size.
