54' Sea Ray 540 Sundancer

$ 329,500
Hull Material
Fuel Type

This 540 Sundancer is FRESH WATER. The current owner has spent a lot of money improving things. The really large Cockpit (16' Beam) can seat a small crowd and has newer Camper Canvas. The Master Stateroom is amidships and has a walk around bed. New Custom Bedding and newer Mattresses in each Stateroom. This is a 2 Stateroom and 2 Head floorplan. She rides really well because she has straight drives and not VDrives. This places a lot of the weight further forward giving much better balance, better performance and a smoother ride. ALL smaller Sundancers have VDrives. She has been maintained for the last 7 years by one of the best mechanics in Chicago. A few of her notable features are:

  • Hydraulic Swim Platform to accommodate your tender or jet ski.
  • Maple Interior that keeps the interior very bright
  • KVH Satellite TV
  • She has the larger generator--15KW over the standard 12.5KW

Power Boat Guide Description

Introduced in 1998, the Sea Ray 540 Sundancer is a megavolume
sport cruiser whose muscular good looks and luxurious
accommodations can still turn heads. This boat offers a seemingly
endless list of high-tech features, and her extravagant interior is
a study in comfort, beginning with the huge Ultraleather sofa that
converts electrically into a slide-out bed. The Sundancer carries
most of her beam forward, which creates plenty of living space
below. The master stateroom is amidships and has a queen bed as
well as a private head compartment. Forward, the guest stateroom
has a full-size berth and space for a washer/dryer combo. The
galley is open in the salon, and storage cabinets are abundant
throughout the boat, all finished in high-gloss cherry woodwork.
In the cockpit, two immense L-shaped settees, which can
accommodate a small crowd, convert at the push of a button into
a massive sun pad. Additional features include a foredeck sun pad,
a superb helm console, and a hydraulic high-low swim platform to
facilitate the launch of a tender. Twin 640hp Cat diesels cruise in
the mid 20s (30+ knots top), and 745hp 8V-
