460 Express Cruiser
Length w/ Pulpit:
When she was introduced in 1985 the Sea Ray 460 Express Cruiser reigned supreme as the largest full-production sport yacht on the market. With her aggressive, low-profile appearance and reversed arch her appeal was such that the 460 became a very good-selling model for Sea Ray. She rides on a solid fiberglass hull with prop pockets and a wide 14-foot, 11-inch beam. Originally, the 460 came with a two-stateroom interior (Plan A) with two headsa layout designed for extended cruising with family or guests. In 1988 a new single-stateroom floorplan with a single head (Plan B) resulted in a much larger salon with two conversation areas (as well as a wet bar and built-in entertainment center) and a huge bow stateroom. Outside, the big bi-level cockpit is arranged with double helm and companion seats forward and a foldaway bench seat at the transom. Large hatches in the bridge deck floor provide good access to the engines. Additional features include wide side decks, teak covering boards, transom door, swim platform, and side-dumping exhausts. Twin 375hp Cat diesels cruise the 460 Express at 20 knots (mid 20s top), and 550hp 6V92 Detroits cruise in the mid 20s (around 30 knots top).
