Boat Test #1670
If you’re looking for the comfort of a cruiser, the modern styling of a coupe, and the functionality of a bowrider, the Sea Ray 320 Sundancer Coupe may just be the boat for you!
First, let’s start with the styling and functionality of a coupe. The 320 Sundancer Coupe features a sleek hardtop, a full wrap-around windshield with side opening vents. It is also available with a retractable canvas sunroom option.
For cruising, the Captain and crew will enjoy the comforts of a spacious cockpit. A large L-shape bench is featured on the port side of the cockpit, and off to starboard, you’ll find a handy wet-bar, and for the hotter climates, optional air conditioning is available for this area.
The helm features a double wide helm seat, with additional passenger seating to port. The dash comes standard with analogue gauges, however I’d upgrade to a pair of touch-screen displays, which can monitor most of the on board systems meeting your navigational needs.
Down below, the 320 Coupe sleeps four comfortably. The aft berth features two sliding twin beds that can combine into a queen, while the forward berth’s lounge table can convert into a full-size bed via filler cushion. A galley with sink, refrigerator and microwave—combined with the fully enclosed head, vanity and shower—are just some of the features that you will find. Hull side windows add natural light, while opening ports add ventilation to the cabin.
A standout feature of the 320 Sundancer is the comfortable ‘bowrider’ seating up forward. A walk-through via the hinged port side windshield allows for easy access from the cockpit. Here you will find a large lounging sunpad area for three, complete articulated headrests and flip down armrests. You can add and remove a small table with ease, and a thoughtful feature is the high stainless steel railing that surround the bow sections for added safety while under way.
Standard propulsion for the 320 Sundancer Coupe are twin MerCruiser 6.2L 300 hp MPI’s with Bravo III drives. A 350 hp package is also available and both packages comes with standard Axius Propulsion (Joystick control).
Sea Ray also offers the 320 Sundancer Coupe in an outboard version as well. That model is fitted with a pair of Mercury 350 hp Verados with Joystick.
