the Power Boat Guide says..........
While the Sea Ray 52 Sundancer (called the 500 Sundancer
in 2004-06) may have lacked the jaw-dropping sex appeal
of the best European yachts of her day, she took a back seat to
few when it came to luxury and open-water performance. Built
on a deep-V hull with prop pockets to reduce the shaft angle, the
Sundancer's innovative cockpit layout is notable. Arranged with
a unique rotating lounge, the cockpit forms a single entertaining
area rather than the divided space found in other express yachts.
Another major change is found below, instead of the ubiquitous
mid-cabin floorplan found in most express cruisers this size,
both of the Sundancer's staterooms are forward. While there is
a foldout bed option aft, this area is now part of the main salon
making it even more expansive than before with posh Ultraleather
sofas, 6'8" headroom, and built-in flat-screen TV/DVD. There are
two full heads in this layout, and the galley includes plenty of
storage as well as a hardwood floor. An extended swim platform,
cherry interior cabinets, and fiberglass hardtop were standard.
A well finished yacht, 640hp Cummins V-drive diesels cruise the
Sundancer at 26-28 knots (30+ top).
