Power Boat Guide Description

Sea Rays largest Sundancer model ever when she was

introduced, was one of the most impressive express yachts on the

market during the 1990s. With her long foredeck and sleek profile,

the 500 combined luxury and extravagance in what was once a

state-of-the-art package. Her sheer size is impressive enough, but

it’s the expansive, high-style interior that caused first-time viewers

to catch their breath. Here, laid out on a single level and presenting

a panorama of curved bulkheads and designer furnishings,

the Sundancer’s accommodations rival those of a small motor

stall shower), a plush U-shaped sofa aft, and a wide-open salon

with excellent headroom throughout. The cockpit—with its triple

companion seat, full wet bar, and circular lounge seating—can seat

a small crowd. Additional features include a reverse sport arch,

wide side decks, and a huge engine room. Early models with 485hp

6-71 V-drive diesels cruise in the low 20s (about 25 knots top).
