Knoxville, Tenn. - April 13, 2009 - Smooth operator. Smart and sexy. Supremely at ease. Each phrase captures a different facet of the 310 Sundancer, and also describes the way this new express cruiser makes customers feel. "With its impeccable style and masterful use of space, the 310 will give owners everything they expect and more," said Dwight Cobble, vice president of sales for sport boats and sport cruisers at Sea Ray. "This is a full-featured model. It's got all the bells and whistles."
Like other Sundancer models, the 310's raised-helm design enhances visibility from behind the wheel and creates more room below for overnight accommodations. Owners and guests alike can count on the twin MerCruiser® 4.3L MPI Bravo® III engines to get them to their destination and back effortlessly and efficiently. En route, a double helm seat gives the captain and a companion the chance to enjoy the view while monitoring the standard SmartCraft® gauges and VHF radio. Instruments are laid out in high-gloss mahogany behind a gorgeous brushed metal and wood steering wheel.
The helm seat can pivot to face aft once the cruiser is at rest, expanding cockpit entertaining space. There's lots of additional seating to go around on the massive L-shaped lounger to port, which is served by a removable teak cockpit table. To further satisfy the desire for alfresco meals, a solid-surface wet bar abaft the helm has a sink, drink holders, handrail, storage and can be equipped with an optional refrigerator and built-in barbecue grill.
Designing dual-purpose seating has long been a talent of Sea Ray's boat doctors, and in addition to the pivoting helm bench, the cockpit lounger on the 310 features a backrest that folds down to make a sun pad. The adjacent swim platform includes a concealed four-step ladder to get owners and guests in and out of the water easily. Add a transom stereo remote to allow convenient navigation of the Sony® stereo with CD player and MP3 port.
Clearly, the new 310 is a boat that is meant to provide comfortable cruising for owners and their guests. Wide, deep steps lead up to the walk-thru windshield and foredeck, which is encircled by a welded stainless-steel bow rail and can be outfitted with a choice of windlasses. A second wide, deep stairway leads into a cabin that can sleep up to six adults: two in the forward V-berth, two in the mid-cabin and two on the convertible dinette sleeper.
Tables in the V-berth and dinette can host a bounty of food from the galley with solid-surface countertop, microwave, refrigerator and stove. Storage for provisions can be found everywhere - in cabinets, in drawers, in the floor - and thanks to the wood interior package the atmosphere is warm and refined. The head comes with a VacuFlush® unit, full-length mirror, sink with pullout faucet sprayer, countertop, vanity, shower curtain and storage.
The 310 boasts multiple options for the cruising-minded owner, from multiple gas and diesel sterndrives to advanced electronics to a remote-control spotlight. There's 10,000 BTU air conditioning/ heating to help extend the boating season, as well as camper canvas for those who like to sleep under the stars. One of the most tempting options for experienced cruisers and novice boaters alike is the Axium drive system with helm joystick control. (Getting in and out of a slip was never so easy.)
Whether they plan to use the 310 for weekend stays, extended cruises or extravagant dock parties, all owners receive a full membership in the Sea Ray Owners ClubTM, where they enjoy special savings, benefits and the opportunity to earn points toward the purchase of their next Sea Ray.
In short, the new 310 Sundancer is poetry in motion, inside and out, from its graceful lines to its inherent hospitality. That pretty much says it all.
