With her oval port lights, low-profile arch, and sculptured lines, this third version of Sea Rays 300 Sundancer series was one of the best-looking sportboats in the market during the late 1990s. Shes built on the same easy-riding deep-V hull used in the production of the previous 300 Sundancer model (199293), but with a restyled profile, updated interior, additional (and badly needed) fuel capacity, and a revised cockpit layout. Accommodations for six are provided below in two different floorplan configurations, both with a standup head with shower, full galley, two hanging lockers, and a convertible dinette. On deck, visibility from the triple helm seat is very good, and a protected chart flat is built into the dash. A filler converts the U-shaped cockpit seating aft of the helm into a large sun pad. Additional features include a walk-through transom, molded bow pulpit, radar arch, and good engine access. Offered with inboard or sterndrive power, twin 250hp MerCruiser V-drive inboards cruise at 1920 knots (about 30 knots top). The less-popular sterndrive versions of the same engines cruise in the low 20s and top out at close to 35 knots.
Overview Classy midcabin express from the mid 1990s offered Sea Ray owners state-of-the-art comfort, styling at a reasonable price.
Features Cockpit with facing bench seats, triple helm seat is larger than most 30-foot express cruisers. Traditional midcabin interior with teak trim, stand-up head, full galley, sleeps six.
Comments Deep-V hull delivers a good open-water ride. Chart flat in dash is a nice touch.
Performance Twin 250hp V-drive inboards cruise at 20 knots (30 top); sterndrive versions of the same engines cruise in the low 20s (about 35 knots top).
