48' Sea Ray 480 Sedan Bridge

$339,000 | 1998 | Dana Point, CA


PLAN B is a very nice example of Sea Ray’s popular 3 stateroom 480 Sedan Bridge. Over the past year she has received nearly $100K in upgrades and maintenance, and it shows!

Walking up to the boat, you will notice that her gelcoat shines like a much newer vessel. Her canvas is in excellent condition, and all of the caulking has been replaced on the exterior.  The 10′ AB center console tender sits on a hydraulic swim platform for easy launching and retrieval. Her interior is in great condition as well, with many new and custom added features throughout. Her beauty is not just skin deep either. In the engine room, her twin  Caterpillar 3196’s  have just received a major service, as has the Westerbeke genset.

If you are looking for a 3 stateroom boat, with a versatile layout and great upgrades, PLAN B should be on your “Must see” list.   She’s also LLC owned, which may have advantages to certain buyers.

Features and Accomodations

Board PLAN B on to the hydraulic swim platform and through the transom door to a roomy, partially covered  cockpit with a large cushioned aft bench, transom live bait well, fish box, and hot/cold shower. Eight molded steps lead to the flybridge, and a large sliding glass door leads to the salon. The spacious flybridge is fully enclosed with a  polycarbonate enclosure, and offers excellent 360 degree views. Her electronics have all been updated with top of the line Raymarine equipment. Dual helm seats provide room comfortable seating for the captain and a companion.  Guests will enjoy a large U-shaped lounge  wrapped around an oval fiberglass table that drops to make a cozy berth.

From the cockpit, through a large tinted sliding door, enter the beautiful neutral-tone cabin with cherry trim, ultra-suede headliner, new wood galley flooring, and LED lighting throughout.  The large main salon is full  of natural light and great views thanks to large windows all four sides.  There’s an ultra-suede electric sleeper sofa,  along with a  hi-lo table with folding leaves. An entertainment cabinet with a new flat screen television and  home theater system, an upgraded stereo  system, is located in the aft starboard corner.   Moving forward, on starboard side is the attractive galley with  upper and lower cabinets, spacious countertop with concealed deep sink and garbage chute, a 3-burner glass cooktop with exhaust fan, and concealed refrigerator, microwave/convection oven, and coffeemaker.  Across from the galley, one small step up  is a dinette that seats 4 comfortably with custom storage underneath.

Continuing forward, down four steps, enter the companionway for the sleeping quarters. To  starboard  is the guest stateroom with L-shaped twin berths, cherry cabinets, drawers, and cedar-lined hanging locker, a central vacuum system, a concealed washer/dryer, two tinted screened portholes, and a round skylight.  Opposite on the port side is the VIP stateroom which has a queen island berth, cherry drawers, a mirrored cedar-lined hanging locker, a flat screen TV, an air conditioning control panel; two tinted screened portholes, and a round skylight.  The forward en-suite head has a fiberglass shower enclosure with molded bench and shelf, a Vacu-Flush  ceramic toilet with fiberglass seat cover, Corian countertop with oval sink, two mirrored cabinets, a translucent porthole, and an additional entry door from the companionway for guests  or day head access.  At the end of the companionway, enter the beautiful master suite with the en-suite head on starboard side which has a large fiberglass shower enclosure with molded bench and shelf, a Vacu-Flush  toilet with fiberglass bench cover, Corian countertops with oval sink, two mirrored cabinets, and a translucent porthole.  The roomy master stateroom has a queen island berth, two large mirrored cedar-lined lockers, cherry lockers and drawers, another flatscreen TV stereo speakers with volume control, an air conditioning control panel, four tinted portholes, and a large overhead tinted screened hatch for fresh air and natural lighting.
