2008 Sea Ray 280 Sundancer
This 2008 Sea Ray Sundancer 280 is a great small cruiser for short or extended trips. It is equipped with a galley, head, camper canvas, generator, air conditioning/heat system, 2 berths and dinette that drops to provide for an additional small mid-berth. V-berth also raises to a nice table. For entertainment there is a CD player, AM/FM radio and TV/DVD player with external antenna. It is powered by two 4.3L V6 engines with Alpha1 outdrives. The PORT engine is original (2008) with about 380 usage hours (last full tune-up Nov/2021) and the STBD engine was replaced with a new one in 2015 and it has about 90 usage hours (last full tune-up Sep/2020). It has new electronics including a Garmin Ecomap 74cv Chartplotter (with GPS, fish finder, depth sounder), and a Garmin VHF315 Marine Radio. It does not have radar. Extras include an optional camper canvas, marine propane grill with rod holder mount, 2 bow lounges, lots of safety gear such as PFDs, ropes, fenders, new flares and fire extinguisher. The boat has several new parts replaced in the last 18 months including a gimbal assembly for the STBD outdrive, helm control box & steering cables, engine hatch lift, 3 dual-purpose batteries and anchor light.

Please note these few items that may need attention in the future.:

The boat currently does not have hot water. The hot water heater system apparently failed before we purchased it Sep/2020 and the heat exchanger was disconnected from the engine. As we have not felt a need for hot water we did not replace it. An in-line heater may be an option to consider. If removal of the PORT engine would ever be needed you should consider removal of the old hot water heater as it is just adding extra weight to the stern.

The trim tabs had been working but are not functioning at this time. A hydraulic leak developed a few weeks ago and since we had not been using them much I have not had them checked. I thought it best to let the new owner check them out and decide on a repair (it may simply be a split o-ring) or perhaps replace the old hydraulic ones with electrics.

The anchor chain is beginning to show some corrosion rust so replacement may be needed at some point.

The back of the swim platform has a small impact break (see photo). It was there when we bought it and has not gotten any worse. It will probably be an easy fix.

Overall condition inside and out has been rated 8.5 out of 10 by an experienced yacht sales agent recently and when we purchased it from the original owner in Sep/2020 our surveyor rated it above average even before we cleaned her up and made some needed repairs and upgrades. She should be a very enjoyable boat for many years to come!
