JULY 28 — Sea Ray has announced that the new 240 Sundancer, with a more spacious design, will replace its previous model of the same name.
“The boat in fact does replace the former 240 Sundancer that we did not build for the previous, 2005 model year,” says Sea Ray spokesperson Mike Hungerford. “This is a totally new hull and deck and not just a freshen of the former. It represents the fresh design concepts of a newer group of designers at our Product Development and Engineering division in Merritt Island, Fla.”
The new 240 Sundancer features more seating than the older model, according to Sea Ray. The so-called “bistro” cockpit layout includes a single helm seat to starboard with an attached companion seat on its port side, two seats along the port coaming with a swing out table in between, and a bench seat for two at the transom.
Below, the 240 has a forward V-berth with a removable filler cushion that allows for conversion to a lounge, and a midcabin with a double berth and privacy curtain. The fully enclosed head has a shower, vanity and sink, and the galley features a sink, refrigerator and microwave, with a stove available as an option.
Standard power is a 260-hp 5.0-liter MPI Bravo III MCM, with other sterndrives available as options, including a 320-hp fuel-injected MX6.2 MPI Horizon Bravo III MCM.
Measuring 26 feet, 6 inches overall and with a beam of 8 feet, 6 inches, the 240 Sundancer also is trailerable, according to Sea Ray.
