The Sea Ray 300 Weekender of the early 1980s is a straightforward express cruiser with inboard power, a flush cockpit, and practical cabin accommodations. While the Weekender is obviously dated by todays sportboat standards, she remains a good selection for used-boat buyers looking for a reliable and well-built express. She rides on a solid fiberglass deep-V hull, and a wide 11-foot beam results in a rather spacious interior with berths for two adults and two kids. Unlike her sistership, the Sea Ray 300 Sundancer (198589), the Weekender does not have a mid-berth aft. In other respects, however, the floorplans of the two boats are identical. A double berth is located in the forward stateroom, which has a sliding curtain for privacy. A convertible dinette is to port, and the standup head compartment contains a sink and shower. Because theres no midcabin, the Weekenders cockpit is flusha feature that provides for a more open cockpit. Doublewide helm and companion seats are forward, and a removable lounge seat at the transom seats three. Standard features included a radar arch, teak bow pulpit, transom door and swim platform. Twin 260hp inboards cruise the Weekender at 24 knots (30+ top).
