If you ever have a spare half hour, it is worth investigating CN Ray, the founder of Sea Ray boats. "Connie" was way ahead of his time when it came to the design, building and marketing of leisure boats and it is mainly his influence that shapes the current configuration of American sports boats today.
The Sundancer design has been around for a long time, and the ethos behind the brand is a comfortable, high volume interior married with a sleek exterior. This model is no exception and packs a lot into its 29 feet and still looks as current today as it did when it came out of the wrapper in 1996.
Sleek, stylish, and easy to handle. Will suit the cruising couple or the family boater and is equally at home as a day boat or a weekender. Huge cockpit with the emphasis on catching some rays, comfortable 4 -berth interior that is both relaxing and bright and an engine that will provide performance and exhilaration in spades. Accommodation :

Engine & Electrics:
Vessel is powered by a Mercruiser 7.4LX Multi Port Fuel Injection petrol engine.
This 310hp unit is situated at the stern of the boat in a soundproofed compartment.
At 3000rpm she will be burning 12.5 gallons per hour but will be on the plane and doing 15-17 knots.
At a comfy 22 knots, she is burning 17 gallons an hour which is pretty good for this type of craft.
Engine serviced in February 2019.
The Bravo III outdrive leg is brand new and installed in July 2017.
Stainless steel Duo props increase grip and acceleration.
Bank of 3X12V batteries provides engine start and domestic power.
