Two dinettes? Have you ever seen a 28' cruiser with two dinettes? True, most of the time you'll never need more than the single four-seat, portside dinette, but having a spare available that sets up in the V-berth beats jamming your guests into the head when a sudden rain drives the party belowdecks. Two dinettes are just one of the many cool, boat worthy features on the 280 Sundancer. A close inspection of the boat reveals thoughtful attention to detail. And the ride? Sea Ray engineered the 280 Sundancer with a hullform that has 21 degrees of transom deadrise and a length-to-beam ratio of just under 3:1. This design, along with the lift and push provided by twin 210-hp MerCruiser stern drives, proves its worth. With a deep-V hullform like the 280 Sundancer. It will allow you to maintain maneuverability when longer stretches of choppy seas take the fun out of wave busting at cruising speed. Not only does this boat get you there, it allows you to enjoy the ride along the way.The accessory panel is worth a good look. Instead of a series of separate switches and breakers, all accessories can be energized from a single, multipurpose, waterproof touchpad that's nicely backlit.Step down the companionway and into the cabin. The headliner is neat and tight. The paneling is a cherry-ish laminate. The upholstery is plush-a tufted mix of fabric and leather that's as easy on the eye as it is on the butt. Also, you won't see any vents for the optional 10,000-Btu air conditioner ($4,200). Why? As on Sea Ray's large boats, these vents are cleverly hidden beneath the woodwork and valances.Take hold of the grabrail at the galley counter. Pull hard. Pull harder. It's mega-yacht hefty. Plus, the counter has a drip catcher routed into its perimeter. Look below and you'll find a rack in a cabinet to stow the lift-off lids from the sink. The counter itself is fiberglass that's been made to look like granite. A trash bin sits beneath a hatch in the companionway stairs of the 280 Sundancer. Remove the bin and you find access to the shower sump pump.Forward, the stowage below the V-berth can be reached from the sides of its base as well as from the top-a neat solution to the problem of having to remove gear from under-berth stowage, especially when what you're looking for, as always seems to be the case, is at the bottom of the bin. Overhead, the translucent deck hatch features a screen and shade that slide and retract, which eliminates the inevitable fumbling and bumbling with typical removable screens.Aft, the mid-berth has a screened vent port, mirrored stowage, and enough headroom to sit comfortably. Plus, there's plenty of snooze room for two adults. The head is basic, perhaps a bit small. It includes a spray-head shower and two solid grabrails that can support you when you need them to. The commode is a vacuum-flush model. The feature below decks that I rate as too cool is the previously mentioned V-berth that converts into a dinette. This one-and-a-half, adult-size berth converts into a dinette that seats four, upping the cabin's total seating capacity to eight. Topside accommodations include especially deep companion and aft lounges, and aft-facing seats that fold and convert into a sunpad. The cockpit is self-bailing, of course, and nonslip has been placed everywhere, including gunwale tops. To starboard, the wetbar features dedicated stowage for a removable cooler, a grabrail, and a poly lid for the sink.Anyone for a swim? The standard 2'7" extended swim platform-the reason for the 280 Sundancer's 31'1" LOA-is accessed via a poly boarding door. The ladder is a three-step, recessed job, angled to port so swimmers stay clear of the drives. A grabrail? It's within easy reach.Engine access is through a hatch cover that's lifted manually and the cover has gas struts and lifts easily.The engine installation is solid. All service points are easily reached. The compartment is gel coated for easy cleanup, too. All in all, a tidy, complete package that proved to be exceptionally competent.This listing has now been on the market a couple months.
