A huge sales success, those looking for a versatile pocket cruiser will find much to like in the 280 Sundancer. Sea Ray hit all the right buttons with the 280 terrific styling, top-shelf amenities, and a well-appointed interior with comfortable accommodations for six. Beginning with her spacious single-level cockpit with wet bar, portside lounger, and transom door, the stern bench seat folds out of the way when not needed and the rear-facing bench seat converts to a sun lounge. A centerline companionway leads to the 280s cherry-trimmed interior with U-shaped dinette to port, full-service galley opposite, convertible V-berth forward (with removable table), and a compact head/shower to starboard. Privacy curtains separate both sleeping areas from the salon. An extended swim platform was standard, and a convenient storage locker is built into the transom. Molded steps in the sliding companionway door provide quick bow access via the walk-thru windshield. On the downside, the mid-cabin berth is a tight fit for adults and the engine compartment hatch is heavy. Built on a solid fiberglass deep-V hull, twin 220hp MerCruiser sterndrives, the 280 Sundancer will cruise at 2426 knots (about 40 knots top).
