Low hours on this freshwater 310 Sundancer. Sea Ray’s designers have rotated the forward V-berth towards the starboard side of the bow. The space gained on the port side is used to accommodate a clothes closet, a roomy head/stand-up shower combination, plus a larger galley that includes a dual-voltage refrigerator, two-burner electric stove, microwave and a sink. Additional storage drawers and cabinets abound.
Angling the double bed also allows it to be located further into the bow, leaving room on the starboard side for a dining area that comfortably seats four and that can be converted to a berth in a pinch.
Guests will likely be happier in the mid-cabin. Tucked under the helm deck, most mid-cabin areas are cramped and claustrophobic. The 310’s mid-cabin is fully open to the rest of the cabin and can be converted to serve as a couch or “conversation pit.” It’s a perfect spot to read a book on a bad weather day.
Sea Ray has deviated from typical production cruiser appointments by using an understated, elegant array of fabrics, upholstery and carpet. The airy, harmonious color scheme enhances the interior layout, promoting an experience of serene spaciousness. Portholes, overhead skylight hatches and carefully located mirrors underscore the mood.
Typical of Sea Ray innovation, the hatches feature bug screens and blinds hidden at the side of the units that slide across the opening with a easy pull. And the cabin floor carpets can be protected with snap-in/snap-out fabric runners.
Topside, the cockpit features a bucket-style captain’s chair with a companion seat alongside that will accommodate two or three people. A U-shaped seating area that wraps around a removable table fills the aft cockpit behind the helm, leaving the port side free for a walkway plus a sleek, one-piece, molded-in-fiberglass wet bar. The open walkway leads directly from the swim platform to the cabin door.
Twin V-drives are always a treat to pilot, which may come as a surprise to anyone who unquestioningly accepts the mythology surrounding a stern drive’s superiority. It’s true that the directed thrust delivered by an outboard drive provides a strong steering action. But that action loses its effectiveness with larger and heavier hulls.
On a longer, heavy deep-V like the Sundancer 310 we’ll take the powerful traction of the V-drive’s slower gearing, wider propellers and shorter pitch. At the dock, minimal use of the steering wheel and throttles is required. Work the shifters as the props grab the water and move the boat around with impressive confidence.
At speed the same traction stabilizes the hull and helps smooth out the ride. That the Sundancer’s ride is smooth, however, should probably go without saying.
