About the Sundancer:

The Sundancer 290 is what is commonly referred to as a mid-cabin sport cruiser, which describes a general style that is popular among boat buyers due to its sporty look and efficient use of space. The 290's stylish design results from a collaboration of Sea Ray&s impressive research and development team of more than 250 naval architects, engineers, interior designers and technicians.

Since their beginning in 1959, Sea Ray Boats has enjoyed a reputation for high quality construction and the 290 Sundancer is no exception. Hull and deck construction begins with an outer layer of gelcoat that is robotically applied to a precisely controlled thickness. This is followed by alternating layers fiberglass materials of different types and weights depending on the strength requirements. Vinylester resins are used in the outer laminates to help prevent osmotic blistering.

Four strong longitudinal stringers support the hull bottom and end-grain balsa wood is used in highly loaded areas of the hull and deck for strength and stiffness. All bulkheads are bonded to the hull sides and decks where they abut. The deck and hull are joined in a shoebox-fashion with silicone sealant and stainless steel screws every six inches along the joint.

The helm is forward to starboard and there is a small lounge seat to port. Behind the helm there is a double seat facing aft and a small wet bar behind the port side lounge. At the transom there is a removable bench seat to starboard and a transom door to port that opens onto an eight-foot-wide, 24& deep swim platform.

The 290 Sundancer comfortably accommodates four adults overnight or six for day cruises. In 1998, the first year of production, two interior arrangements were offered. Plan "A" had an elliptical dinette forward followed by a starboard settee, port galley again followed by a starboard head and mid cabin. Plan "B" was the same arrangement with a double berth replacing the forward dinette. The Lazy Lab is a Plan "A". 

Aft of the galley is a head with an integral shower with sump to discharge shower water overboard. Opposite the head is the entrance to the mid-cabin and double berth. The berth is tucked under the cockpit but there is nearly three feet of clearance over the berth to the underside of the cockpit.

Cruising speed is about 22 mph and top speed 27 to 30 mph depending on the load. With the twin 240 hp gas engines that are in the Lazy Lab, the 290 Sundancer cruises at 25 mph at 3,500 rpm and tops out at 43 mph at 4,600 rpm. Trim tabs are standard equipment and make it easy to adjust for crew weight, speed and sea conditions. All twin-engine installations have counter rotating outdrives for more precise maneuvering at slow speed and the 21 degree angle of deadrise seems to be just right for speed performance and a soft ride.

There is no denying the 290 Sundancer is at the upper end of the price range for a production boat of this size but she offers first-rate construction, accommodations and performance, and a reputation for quality and customer satisfaction that keeps Sea Ray owners loyal and resale priced high.
