51' Sea Ray 48 Sundancer
The 48 Sundancer, which in fact is a 51-footer, is an eye-turning yacht that is both beautifully designed and built to very high standards of craftsmanship. It has the pedigree of a company that has been in the business for more than 45 years and that experience shows in the well thought out shipboard systems—electronic, mechanical and others—and its very strong reputation for customer support. And to top it all off, this is a high performance yacht that promises to provide endless hours of fun on the water for both owners and guests. With a pair of Cummins fully electronic QSC 540 517hp diesel motors, you will very easily chase the sun and be able to retreat to distant waterways in this capable cruiser.
ALA MOANA has a wide hydraulic swim grid that cantilevers out from the stern and submerges to easily load water toys or an inflatable dinghy or PWC. The aft section of her cockpit is surrounded on three sides by a huge U-shaped lounge that features a beautiful custom cockpit table and an impressive wet bar. Her wet bar also features a large flat-screen TV on a swivel bracket.
Up a step is a large L-shaped lounge to port and the helm station with dual helm seats to starboard. Her helm seats have a great feature that allows them be pivoted 90 degrees so they are flush with the side of the cockpit. Together, the helm and cockpit seating areas provide an open, comfortable and expansive entertaining area for a dozen or so people. The windshield, side windows and fiberglass hardtop enclose the helm station on three sides and a set of canvas curtains seals off her stern area. She has a wonderful option of having a 24,000 BTU Cockpit Air Conditioning / Heating system which guarantees that cruising will be comfortable no matter what time of year you venture out. There are also four opening sunroof panels and an electric opening vent at the bottom front of the windshield, which willprovide plenty of ventilation. Her helm station layout is most impressive and pleasing to the eye.
ALA MOANA comes with two completely different and independent navigation systems with completely different mapping systems - a Raymarine E120 system and a Sea Ray (Maptech) Navigator III system. This is a very unusual and expensive way to outfit the boat and makes her much more safe and capable from a navigation point of view than almost any Sundancer 48 (or almost any other boat for that matter) out there.
Her interior is stunning, with a combination of neutral colours, solid-surface countertops, a custom mahogany floor, mirrors and high-gloss cherry cabinets, woodwork, and trim . The saloon, galley, heads and forward and aft staterooms are all on a single level, which when combined with extra-wide passageways, adds to the spacious feel of her interior. Six large vertical hull windows offer a great view outside. In combination with overhead skylights, her interior is bright and airy. The main feature of her saloon is an L-shaped Ultraleather settee and hi-lo dining/coffee table. Set into the aft bulkhead are a series of louvred cupboards that contain storage as well as a flat-screen TV/DVD player, Sirius Satellite System and an amazing BOSE sound system.
Her U-shaped galley has all the features one would expect, including solid-surface countertops, two-burner electric stove with convection oven/microwave underneath. The full-sized, upright Norcold dual voltage fridge has a very large freezer compartment.
Her forward master stateroom has a queen island bed, two large closets and a large skylight over the bed for stargazing. The ensuite head has a separate shower large enough to sit in comfortably. The handrails and Grohe plumbing fixtures are all ultra-modern with a satin nickel finish. A sliding cherry door with full-length mirror separates the master from the saloon. Solid wood doors are used throughout, and heavy catches and hinges infuse a real sense of luxury. All cabinets and drawers fit precisely, reflecting the high quality of workmanship.
Her mid-stateroom is under the helm station, accessed from a passageway on the port side. Twin athwartship beds can be moved together to form a queen berth. Across the passageway is a sink and counter, while further aft is a combination head/shower. Overall, the midships stateroom provides a place where kids (or guests) can hang out away from the action in the saloon.
ALA MOANA is an exceptionally clean and well-equipped 48 Sundancer and will be one of the most comfortable, sporty and impressive “homes away from home” that you will ever own.
