Sea Ray 595 Sundancer Yacht

BOAT OF THE MONTH: February 2010

FOR SALE $895,000

The dealer calls it a cross between a Ferrari and a holiday home. We’re talking our Boat of the Month, the Sea Ray 595 Sundancer Yacht, a stunning sportsyacht with sleek lines, a list of options as long as the proverbial arm, 800hp Caterpillar digital engines, and easy dockside manoeuvring thanks to a bowthruster with key-ring remote.

Step aboard via the huge hydraulic swimming platform/PWC carrier or fully concealed Besenzoni passerelle/gangway, both of which have remote controls, into a huge teak cockpit with abundant lounge seating and an absolutely fantastic rear lounge, which turns into a huge sunpad at the press of a button.

There are day fridge, icemaker, wetbar and tons of storage, but entertainment is enhanced by a dedicated sound system with CD stacker, amplifier and subwoofer. The engineroom is equipped with giant Racor fuel filters, electric Reverso oil change, Westerbeke generator, inverter system, and the magnificent 3406E Cats.

Timber flooring, full-size fridge, ceramic electric stove, microwave/convection oven, and a deep Corian counter are among the galley features. The luxurious saloon incorporates an enormous UltraLeather lounge that, at the press of a button, folds flat to form a bed before the big flatscreen TV.

The two-cabin layout puts the master cabin amidships with an inner-sprung island bed, dedicated Bose sound system, TV, subdued lighting and full-size en suite. At the bow is the guest cabin with double bed. Both bathrooms feature marble flooring, enormous showers, Grohe designer tapware and VacuFlush toilets.

This is a serious boat (delivered 2003), with an original list price in excess of $2m. But she is now available for just $895,000, together with a berth at St Kilda, Vic, if required by her new owners.
