Newport Beach, CA, United States

LLC owned 540 Sundancer!

This 2012 540 Sea Ray Sundancer is a stunning example of what an express cruiser should be! She’s loaded with options from stem to stern, and has been professionally maintained with an open check book.

Her helm deck and cockpit area are absolutely amazing, with an abundance of seating, a sun lounge, a centerline helm station, and teak decks. Belowdecks, she features two beautifully appointed staterooms, each with their own ensuite heads. The salon is also a sight to behold, and very comfortable.

She’s powered by upgraded Cummins QSM11’s and Zeus pods, with joystick controls and the skyhook system. She’s powerful, sleek, and ready to take you yachting in style.

Held in an LLC, there could be tax advantages to purchasing her as well.

Don’t wait, call us today for a private showing of the beautiful yacht!

Helmdeck and Cockpit
The primary gathering place is her aft deck that is up three steps from the swim platform and down two steps from the helm deck. The L-shaped plush seating can handle seven adults. Add a few  deck chairs and 10 people can be comfortably accommodated.The back seat of the cockpit easily folds down and opens up a large sun pad that will be hard for some people to resist! As if that isn’t enough, there’s a huge sunpad forward on the bow.

Sea Ray has figured out a way to expand its entertaining seating even more by placing the helm and companion seat of a fiberglass base that swivels 180-degrees from facing forward to facing aft. To starboard is a bench seat that can seat another three adults. Add it all up and 15 adults can all be seated on the cockpit space of the Sea Ray 540.


Helm & Electronics
The helm of the 540 is nearly on the yachts centerline, creating excellent visibility in all conditions for the skipper. There are two high quality helm seats on a swiveling pedestal, one for the captain, and one for a friend. The helm is nearly fully enclosed with massive forward windows, and the hardtop.  There are both side opening windows, and a forward vent that allow for more than adequate ventilation.

The second entertaining venue is below in the 540’s salon. An L-shaped sofa is large and plush and can easily seat seven adults. . There is a hi-lo table that can serve as a cocktail table or a dining table when raised. Opposite is the galley, and opaque Shoji screens are aft which bring in light from the master stateroom. The salon is richly swathed in cherry wood paneling outboard and has wainscoting on the forward bulkhead. The sole which stretches across the salon to the galley is dark maple. Much-needed storage space is in cabinets above the portlights behind the sofa. Sconces on cherry paneling frame the window of light coming in from outside.

Like the cockpit, the galley was designed with entertaining and large groups in mind, but not producing a five-course gourmet meal. . When cruising, the galley is sufficient for the basic necessities.There is a long solid-surface counter top with the freezer and refrigerator underneath in two separate units. Drawers for flatware, utensils and a couple of pans are found at the forward end of the galley. Under the sink is a trash hamper. A microwave/convection is above the counter forward. There is a two-burner stove top in the center of the counter under the portlights.Galley Storage is King. Sea Ray hasn’t forgotten storage either. Dry goods will find a home behind the cherry doors in large overhead lockers above the counter. Abaft the counter there is a full-height cupboard behind Shoji screens and cherry door panels. This is the place for stemware and china. There are also several bins in the cabin sole that are ideal for storing things such as packs of soda, beer, wine bottles and the like.

Master Stateroom & Head
The master and its head are full-beam and lay right in the center of the boat, which is always the most comfortable place to be. The bed itself is queen-sized and has an innerspring mattress.Below the bed are drawers. Dark matte cherry wainscoting that rises from the deck to the padded, vinyl chair rail surround the bed. The forward bulkhead is an opaque Shoji screen made from a synthetic material rather than from paper. This gives the stateroom both a classy and modern look.There is another Bose entertainment system here along with a 32″ flatscreen LCD TV. Roman shades cover the large portlights  Light filters in through the Shoji screen into the stateroom as well as the reverse. The attached master head is large. The sink is extra wide and modern,  and the shower is spacious.

Guest Stateroom & Head
The forward stateroom is truly a VIP cabin and actually has more hanging locker space than the master. While the basic layout with an island queen bed is standard, the extensive use of wood is not. Not only is their wood paneling along the sides of the cabin, the deck is also wood, and that includes the step up to the island berth. The hanging lockers have a Shoji screen treatment framed in wood and there is wood trim around the headboard and framing out the portlights port and starboard. The valances are wood with Roman shades behind. The solid wood counters under the portlights contain bins for added storage. Like the master, the VIP stateroom has a Bose sound system with a DVD player as well as a 19″ flatscreen LCD TV.The forward head is used as both a day head and a VIP head. The ceramic tile, teak seat in the shower stall and solid -surface counter top are of the same materials used in the master head.
