Outfitted with a unique, electric windshield vent system that allows for an unbroken line from deck to roof plus a sleek hardtop with two extra-large sunroof hatches, this ingeniously designed beauty is nothing short of inspired.


Power boat guide write up:


Sea Ray 48 Sundancer Overview  

Bold and innovative styling has been a Sundancer trademark for many years, an assertion that few marine industry pros would likely dispute. That was certainly in evidence in 2005 with the introduction of the 48 Sundancer, a remarkably handsome hardtop cruiser whose sweeping lines and distinctive hullside ports reset the styling standard for boats in her class.

Built on a beamy deep-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom and prop pockets to reduce shaft angles, the opulent two-stateroom interior of the 48 Sundancer is a sophisticated blend of high-gloss cherry cabinets, Ultraleather seating, hardwood floors and designer galley appliances. Both staterooms are private, and the forward head is split with the toilet and sink to port and the shower to starboard.

A 26" flat-screen TV/DVD is standard in the salon, and the aft head has a separate stall shower. The 48’s sleek fiberglass hardtop—which shades a good part of the cockpit—includes dual sunroofs.
