A cynosure is commonly defined as someone or something that is the center of attention or admiration, usually due to its brilliance or beauty; this 2015 Sea Ray Sundancer 510 Express Cruiser certainly embodies that definition. From the moment you step onto her spacious swim platform, one cannot help but admire her design and appointments. The bridge/upper salon blends seamlessly with the cockpit as well as the lower salon and galley. The two stateroom and two head layout makes Cynosure VII very versatile, and ready for any boating adventure.
The sellers have been boat owners since 1980 and are the second owners of this yacht. They have cruised both the Atlantic and Gulf shores of Florida, as well as Lake Okeechobee since purchasing her in 2017. When purchased new, an extended warranty was included on the vessel which expired in 2020, so the vessel has been well maintained.
The origin of the word cynosure related to the constellation Ursa Minor, which mariners know is the home of Polaris, the North Star. Is it time for you to follow the star?

Swim Platform, Cockpit, and Foredeck
The 45” wide hydraulic swim platform on Cynosure VII is the perfect place to store a tender on its sliding chocks, with six D rings for anchoring the tender. (A tender does not convey with Cynosure VII.) The swim platform surface is white non-skid. An integrated swim step ladder with a grab bar is to starboard.

The cockpit on Cynosure VII can be covered with a black Sunbrella canvas cover with two large Eisenglass windows. Once the cover is removed the cockpit can be shaded by the black Sunbrella canvas power actuated sunshade that deploys from the hardtop. The teak sole of the cockpit has the engine room access hatch.
A Kenyon electric grill with digital controls and a removable stainless steel cover is to starboard in the cockpit. The grill station includes: storage under the grill, an 110V electrical outlet, and two cup holders.
A U-shaped tan leatherette settee is to port in the cockpit; it is the perfect place for cocktails or alfresco dining. A high gloss teak table is protected by a Sea Ray fitted cover. The settee features: stainless steel cup holders, courtesy lights, and storage.
The foredeck of Cynosure VII is accessible via sidewalks on both sides of the vessel; stainless steel hand rails on the hardtop can assist while moving forward.
The deck has a black Sunbrella sun pad with the Sea Ray logo. The back of the sun pad folds up to convert into a seatback.

From the cockpit you enter the air conditioned bridge/upper salon through stainless steel sliding glass doors and get your first indication of just how luxurious Cynosure VII is. The large windows combined with the sunroof and sliding glass door make the entire area feel open and spacious. The dark wood sole and cabinetry offsets the light colored walls and seating areas.

The double-leg pedestal wood table folds open to allow guests to be seated comfortably. The window behind the settee opens for ventilation.

The sliding glass door and the side windows all have fabric privacy curtains. The bridge/upper salon hardtop roof has four large retractable roof panels with retractable pleated shades. Fresh air is also available through an opening air vent hatch in the hardtop.

Hull and Construction
The Sea Ray Sundancer 510 was designed to face any sea condition with a 19 degree deadrise and a deep-V keel. The Sundancer 510 is built with Sea Ray’s single-skin lamination process. Sea Ray considers it a very consistent lamination method that achieves the structural properties Sea Ray requires, and gives the boat a solid feel. The internal components of the vessel are thus relied on to provide a “unibody construction.”
The large side windows are raked to aid in the sleekness of the profile. The six feet of space between the base of the windshield and the helm station creates a glass cathedral ceiling over the galley and salon, which provides natural light and limitless headroom down below. It also provides outstanding visibility from the helm.
The hull below the rub rail on Cynosure VII is black in color.
The salon on Cynosure VII has five wide non-skid steps down from the bridge/upper salon. A stainless steel handrail is available for safety.
