    1989 Sea Ray Sundancer 300, Raymarine C120
    2 (lord help me) 5.7 Mercs
    Well, we find that we are just not using her as much as we should--busy lives, indeed--and so it is time to sell our beloved Sound Waves.

    33' overall
    twin 5.7 Mercs
    RayMarine Chartplotter with GPS and Fishfinder
    I am the second owner.

    The Good:
    - One engine with about 20 hours on it; the other with 600 (MANY new parts--i.e., alternator, electronic module, carb, starter, wiring, linkages, etc., etc., etc.)
    - Freshwater cooling system installed from the beginning--i.e., no salt water in the engines, ever.
    - Brand new upgraded throttle assemblies ($1200 installed!)
    - Always professionally maintained (i.e., no amateur mechanics, or dock rats have touched this boat)
    - Brand new canvas and Eisenglass
    - Raymarine C-120 electronics
    - Air Conditioning blows ice cold
    - Heater works perfectly, too
    - Galley stove never used--works perfectly.
    - New master panel assemblies
    - Refrigerator works perfectly
    - Bedding in very good condition (rarely used)
    - All cabinetry in excellent condition (rarely used, if ever).
    - Interior clean
    - Head is spotless--i.e., never used, thank God.
    - 40 gallon fresh water tank (no odors, at all)
    - All lights, GFIs and electronics work perfectly
    - Brand new Lewmar 400 windlass and rollers ($1400 installed!)
    - New heavy claw anchor
    - Both props have one short season on them
    - No leaks topside or bottom
    - Deck shower
    - New cockpit side panel
    - New Alpine stereo unit
    - Many extras--lines, anchors, PFDs, cushions, fenders

    The Less Good:
    - Boat can use a good waxing and polishing, topside and bottom
    - Interior carpeting is okay, but can use a bit of refreshing, I'd say. No tears, that I can recall
    - Bottom should be blasted with walnut shells, and repainted
    - Rear bench seat was taken out (never used it, waste of space and weight)
    - Teak accents are pretty good, but can use a bit of cleaning and sealing

    I bought this vessel from a man in his 90s; he was the original owner, and kept it only in fresh water (North end of the Hudson). But he was a dock guy--rarely took it out on the river. The meters had about 500 hours on them when I bought the boat, in 2018. I replaced the starboard engine in 2018 ($12,000!), and I have only put about 20 hours on it--max. I had brand new canvas and Eisenglass installed in August 2019 ($4500!). The boat is shrink-wrapped every year, for the winter, of course. The gas is always clean and stored properly in the tanks. The oil has been changed religiously since it was new. I have all the receipts, too, of course.

    So, I'm hoping for $15,000. Will entertain offers, but remember, the new powerplant and canvas cost $15,000 right there. The boat is on the hard for the winter. Will be in a slip in Stamford, CT, in April. If I don't sell before then, I will be less inclined to negotiate, as I will have incurred commissioning, slip fees, etc.

    This great boat has been only lightly used in its entire history--average less than 20 hours a year! She's an older boat, yes, but they really don't make 'em like the used to. My loss, your gain.

    Some of these photos were taken while I was cleaning the boat, so there are items strewn about--but, I'm sure you get the idea. It's a fabulous family boat, with many years left on it. Why buy a new one for a quarter million dollars? Take this one for 95% less!

    will post pictures when it's commissioned. i have none to show, i don't think. anyway, it's your basic 300 sundancer--they all look pretty much the same. This one is white, with blue canvas.
