The 240 Sundancer is a grand first step into Sea Ray's world-renowned family of raised helm, mid-cabin stateroom designed cruisers. The functional cockpit is designed for versatility and entertainment for fun while docked or underway. At first glace she may appear as a large-scale cruiser, but she's still trailerable with an 8' 6" beam.
The cockpit on the 240 Sundancer offers plenty of room to move around or relax while underway. The double bench seats aft easily fold down to create one large sun pad, which is perfect for a lazy afternoon. Down below, the 240 has a V-berth with a removable table which can easily be converted into a double berth for over-nighting. The berth is comfortable for two adults. The 240 can sleep four without a problem.
Large cockpit with plenty of seating:
The first thing you notice is the extended fiberglass swim platform that—at 2 feet long—is plenty big to serve as a staging site for swimmers, wakeboarders, and water toy fans. There’s a 3-rung swim ladder right there, and a port for a freshwater washdown nearby. If you really need to warm up after a swim however, just head down into the cabin where you’ll find a “cozy” but fully enclosed head with hot/cold shower (water heater is standard equipment here).
The 240DA has a handy aft bench seat for two adults that folds up automatically when you manually lift the hatch below to reveal the powerplant. Or, when you really want to clear the decks, this same bench seat folds down and tucks into the transom for extra cockpit space. Also, the 240 has a handy locker right in the transom that can hold a few fenders and docklines while containing shorepower and city water hookups.
Just in front of the aft bench seat is an aft-facing lounge for one adult or two kids. This is a great place to spot your athletes while towing them, and with a few twists of a handle, the seat lowers aft to create a small sunpad. You can also install a removable cockpit table here for snacks on the hook.
This is all just across from a small beverage console to starboard with two drink holders, food-prep surface, a handy stainless steel grabrail, and stowage below for an Igloo cooler and your cleaning supplies. Another plus is that the whole cockpit is a single level, so its easy to walk from transom, through this cockpit area, and on up to the helm without tripping on any raised surfaces.
Up at the helm, you’ll find a single pedestal seat to starboard that swivels and has a flip-up bolster which you’ll use all the time while docking and while standing. It is also important to note how you reach the foredeck from here, and notice this as you compare compact express cruisers. On many boats you’ll find steps so narrow they’re barely the width of a deck shoe, but here, Sea Ray uses the entire span of the companionway door and molds in wide, non-skid steps leading up to the non-skid foredeck.
In the belly of the beast is a single 260-hp MerCruiser 5.0 liter MPI hitched to a big Bravo Three drive. The propeller on the boat is extra wide at 17 ¾ inches. What this means to you is good, powerful out-of-the-hole acceleration when sking (7.0 seconds to plane from forward idle), and easier backing down while docking since this prop moves so much water. MerCruiser has made your life easy by placing all the routine items—such as dipstick, gear lube monitor, power-steering reservoir, and oil filter—on top of the engine for easy service.
The cabin itself is remarkably roomy for a 24-footer, with a dinette/V-berth forward, small hanging locker, compact galley that’s fine for over-nighting, the aforementioned head, and a mid-cabin. The galley comes complete with dual voltage refrigerator, sink and storage space. Just behind the galley is the mid-stateroom that features a double bunk and privacy curtain, which is perfect for kids or another couple spending the night. This is your primary storage area for bulky items like the front and side isinglass curtains, and speaking of canvas, the 240 DA comes with a bimini top AND camper canvas so you can even sleep or relax in the cockpit in inclement weather. The midcabin also has a nice little port for natural ventilation, and believe it or not, this boat is equipped with air conditioning which will run off shore power—a nice touch while docksiding at the marina.
