The top-selling big express of her day, the 380 Sundancer took Sea Ray market dominance to the next level following her introduction in 1999. This was an era when glamorous European sport yachts — with their sleek styling and high-performance hulls — were having a significant impact on the domestic boating scene. Among the U.S. models that rose to meet this challenge was the 380 Sundancer. With more beam than her European counterparts and considerably more freeboard, none of the imports could match the 380’s huge interior with its spacious salon, home-sized galley (note full-size refrigerator), and generous headroom. A pocket door separates the forward stateroom from the salon while a curtain provides privacy for the mid-cabin area. The earth-tone decor — cutting-edge in its day — is a mix of cherry cabinets, leather upholstery, and premium appliances. Topside, the cockpit is dominated by a big U-shaped lounge aft of the helm. The double companion seat is a nice touch on a boat this size. The bottom is balsa cored; Sea Ray had issues with some cored hulls from 1995 to 2002. Most were sold with gas engines. MerCruiser 370hp V-drive inboards cruise at 18 knots (mid 20s top).
