  1. 340 SUNDANCER THREAD

    I thought it was time that we start up a 340DA thread...Me and the wife started boating 3 years ago and fell in love with it. We where planning on moving up from our 23ft bowrider to a 340 last season but we had to hold off. We are planning to move up this season. We are looking at the 340 with the 8.1's, radar/chartplotter, spot light, front sun pad with s/s runners, under swim platform lighting and the fixed soft top. I'm on the fence with getting the generator. Any suggestions or comments would be great.

    By all means get the genny. You will regret not having one and boats in this size range without one take a big hit in the resale market. The cost of adding one later is not worth the expenditure. Buy it now and enjoy it for the years you will own the boat.

    The 340 is an awesome boat! I highly recommend getting the genny. If you spend nights out on the hook, you will need it to watch tv and run the air conditioning or heater depending where you live.

    340 Dancer

    We purchased our 2003 340 Dancer last season and absolutely love it. It has the twin 8.1 V-drives, radar, genny, and central vacumn system. definitely a great boat that you will enjoy. Roomy and comfy.

    Definitely get the Genny.

    You'll love the boat. Gen, IMO, is a must.

    We moved up from a Four Winns 248 Vista and couldn't be happier. Looking at the two styles of 340s, we decided to buy the older style. Even though the looks of the new style are clearly more modern, the cocpit and interior of the old style suits us much better.

    There is a reason the 340 is Searay's best selling express cruiser by a far margin.

    You have to get the Generator. Most luxury items run off of it - Microwave, A/C and Heat, Coffee maker and Stove. Adding that amount to your montly bill will be almost invisible, but as previously mentioned, selling your boat without it will not be easy. Adding it to your boat at sell time will not be fun, and the financial hit will not be so subtle.

    We've been boat owners since 1989. We've been Sea Ray owners since 1997. We just got our 340 and absolutely LOVE it.

    We had our denaming ceremony followed by the naming ceremony last night (reference thunderstorms). The Gods of the wind and the sea came to watch. They seemed to display their pleasure with a show of strength in our local area. Nothing was close enough to us to indicate displeasure (no lightning inside of about a mile or two, wind was moderate, and waves were light in the marina, yet crashing loudly on the beach 1/3 mile away).

    Her new name is Shell's Island - a play on words based on my wife's nickname Shelli/Shell, and the local barrier island where we spend most of our idle time - Shell Island.

    How to make big points with wife:

    1) Name boat after her
    2) Secretly remove old name
    3) Secretly Cruise across bay to get new name added on
    4) Cover new name with old name
    5) Complain that the weather is keeping self from removing old name
    6) Invite friends over to boat for cocktail party, naming ceremony supposedly delayed for weather
    7) Decide to remove old name in ceremony - reveal blank transom
    8) Get "Talked into" renaming ceremony by friends
    9) Reveal new name to wife's surprise and delight
    10) Drink, but don't get drunk (Needed a 10th one)

    Does anyone know what the available depth is for mounting speakers in the stock locations?

    I'd check mine, but she's still under wraps for the winter.

    I would forgo some of the other options you are looking at in order to get the genny - add the electronics later.
