500 Sundancer; 52 Sundancer
Length w/ Pulpit:
While the Sea Ray 52 Sundancer (called the 500 Sundancer in 200406) may have lacked the jaw-dropping sex appeal of the best European yachts of her day, she took a back seat to few when it came to luxury and open-water performance. Built on a deep-V hull with prop pockets to reduce the shaft angle, the Sundancers innovative cockpit layout is notable. Arranged with a unique rotating lounge, the cockpit forms a single entertaining area rather than the divided space found in other express yachts. Another major change is found below instead of the ubiquitous midcabin floorplan found in most express cruisers this size, both of the Sundancers staterooms are forward. While there is a foldout bed option aft, this area is now part of the main salon making it even more expansive than before with posh Ultraleather sofas, 6'8"" headroom, and built-in flat-screen TV/DVD. There are two full heads in this layout, and the galley includes plenty of storage as well as a hardwood floor. An extended swim platform, cherry interior cabinets, and fiberglass hardtop were standard. A well finished yacht, 640hp Cummins V-drive diesels cruise the Sundancer at 2628 knots (30+ top).
