Searay 410 Sundancer diesel sports cruiser, Hardtop, beautifully presented and highly optioned
Searay 410 Sundancer Sports Cruiser, Hardtop, 2001 Aussie delivery, Twin Caterpillar 385 HP V-drive diesels with digital throttles. This boat has a massive option list and is generally a high volume boat in every way; with bow thruster, hydraulic swim platform, generator, aircon & heating just to name a few of the big items, and then the comprehensive helm set up has a full suite of Raymarine electronics – radar, autopilot, GPS/Sounder, VHF, and Tridata, along with Searay systems monitor, trim tab indicators and flo-scan fuel management data. No helm would be complete without a separate captain’s seat plus a three companion helm seat to keep your crew close by. The remote spotlight, tilt steering wheel and stereo remote are within easy reach and the entire helm area is temperature regulated with two hatches in the hardtop, aircon-heating outlets on the dash or the electric vent window in the stainless windscreen frame; talking about ventilation the near new front clears have a large zip opening with flyscreen and in fact, the entire cockpit area is covered all the way to the aft with an extended bimini and can be opened up with fly/Mozzie screens guaranteeing you ‘avagoodweekend ‘ in the peak of summer. If you are staying in the marina, the clears also have a full ‘breezeway’ shade cover to keep the sun out which also helps maintain the pristine condition of the cockpit upholstery. Still in the cockpit area is a 12/240 V refrigerator and wetbar area with good bench space and dedicated rubbish bin cupboard, snap in carpets, massive table with second smaller table tucked under the electric lift engine hatch and classic U shaped (hot tub style) lounge seating. The headroom and overall size of this area feels huge and is perfect for a big day of entertaining or just escaping. The hydraulic swim platform also has a twin stainless stern rails, a BBQ and is finished in teak, access to the generous side walkarounds is via built in steps on both sides of the cockpit, the front deck makes a great lounge area and access to the anchor winch or fender baskets is easy. Engine access is good and as basic at it sounds, you don’t have to move the cockpit table or seat cushions or even the carpet to get to the engine bay, just push the button and it all goes up at the same time! Down in the salon the 6’6” head room immediately makes the area feel big; a long sweeping lounge that easily converts to a double and polished table (not shown) still have plenty of space around them to move forward and aft,; accommodation is for 6 pax on 3 doubles with a big master V-berth cabin and a clever convertible aft lounge double (shown set up as a bed) offering more than enough comfort for extended stays. With 2 heads, this boat is perfect for 2 couples; the main head/ensuite has a separate shower and is one of the biggest I have seen in a boat this size, both have vacuflush toilet systems into holding tanks. The galley is also impressive, with heaps of bench space, 3 burner electric stove top, microwave oven, full size fridge and plenty of cupboard space. Of course there are a bunch of other extras such as flat screen TV/DVD’s, auto fire systems, ultrasonic electric antifoul device, transom shower and more, but the most impressive thing about this boat is the condition. Everywhere I looked was clearly maintained and lovingly cared for. Many of the components have been upgraded over the years, the upholstery, the canvas and clears, the gelcoat, the stainless - everything was amazing; not just for the age of the boat, but even when compared to much newer boats. This is a real credit to the owner, it was impressive and I would suggest that at this price, this big volume boat with Searay pedigree thrown in will not last long at all!
