2008 SEA RAY 350 SUNDANCER

The sweeping, aerodynamic lines. The extra-large hull windows. The seamless fiberglass hardtop. At a dockside glance, it's the luxury sport style that first draws your attention to the all-new Sea Ray 350 Sundancer. But look beyond the obvious charm, and you may be surprised by what you see in the stunning flagship of our Sport Cruiser line.

For example, at the stern when you pull a handle, a two-person transom seat unfolds alongside the spacious standard swim platform. It's perfect for waterside lounging when the boat is at rest, but disappears again when the seat is not in use. An optional extended swim platform with teak insert and stainless-steel rail makes a fashionable and functional addition, as well. In addition, an optional transom stereo remote ensures that you never have to leave the water to turn up your favorite song.

A convenient door leads to the cockpit, where a big L-shaped settee faces a solid-teak table, which stows in a dedicated storage area. This roomy space can be converted to a sun pad with standard filler cushions. To maximize "harmonious flow" on deck, the ingeniously designed double helm seat and single companion seat each pivot to face aft, thereby easing conversation when the driving is done.

Keeping the whole gang fed and watered is a snap, thanks to the cockpit entertainment center which features a handsome solid-surface countertop with stainless-steel wet bar, refrigerator and optional barbecue grill. The grill is a must have for summer picnics aboard. With the addition of an optional 15-inch flatscreen TV with remote DVD player, the cockpit becomes tailgate central. The TV removes when not in use and, of course, stores in a dedicated compartment.

At the helm, high-gloss panels provide room for waterproof switch pads, SmartCraft(r) gauges and optional electronics like the VesselView display, which monitors engine performance, depth and water temperature, trip log information and more. The 350 Sundancer comes standard with brawny twin MerCruiser(r) 496 Magnum(r) MPI Bravo(r) III sterndrives (T-375 hp - 280 kW) with Digital Throttle and Shift, but a comprehensive list of options -- even inboards, gas or diesel -- allows owners to personalize their boat for optimal performance, efficiency and durability based on where they boat.

The cabin is a bright and relaxing place, boasting two oversized hull windows, a pair of skylights and optional wood flooring. First-class amenities in the salon include an Ultra-leather HP(tm) sofa, solid-wood dinette table, deep-pile carpet and 26-inch flatscreen TV with remote DVD player. The spacious mid-stateroom makes a great "conversation pit," and when it's time to turn in for the night, it converts to a double bed with privacy curtain. Everyone enjoys easy access to the head, which has simulated-teak flooring and a separate shower stall for added convenience.

Across from the salon, cherry mica cabinets with maple interiors offer abundant storage in the galley, both above and below the big solid-surface countertop. The onboard chef will appreciate a full range of appliances, including a space-saving microwave/coffeemaker combo unit and a two-burner stove. In addition, two refrigerators (one regular and one drawer-style) hold extra cruising provisions.

An island V-berth with elastic foam mattress provides the owner with a sweet retreat after a long day of sun and fun. It holds another surprise: an electrically actuated Posturpedic(r) backrest that's perfect for viewing the optional 17-inch flip-down TV with built-in DVD player. Cruise-wear and other necessities are stored in the hanging closet, gunwale cabinets and locker with shelves.

The 350 Sundancer is just one more example of Sea Ray's commitment to making the best performing, most comfortable and easiest-to-own sport cruisers on the water. Plus, our owners enjoy the top service, support, and lifestyle opportunities imaginable. Those are benefits everyone can appreciate.
