1998 Sea Ray 280SS Cruiser in Antioch, Illinois

Stock #184142

This 1998 Sea Ray 280 Sun Sport is a 100% freshwater vessel that has been well cared for its entire life.

The Sea Ray 280 Sun Sport offers all the pleasure and versatility one could want in a sport cruiser.

This 280SS has a great layout for entertaining along with cruising and relaxing.

In the 280 Sun Sport, your guests can relax in the circular aft seating area close to the cockpit refreshment center.

Down below, passengers can find reprieve from the sun and weather. The galley is perfect for preparing simple meals. As an added convenience, the V-berth converts to a spacious dinette.

This 280 SS has a nice stereo system and immense amounts of seating for its size.

In addition, the sellers have a full camper top which has only been a welcome relief from the elements as well as offering the ability to comfortably sleep at nights out in the aft cockpit and really enjoy a quality experience only offered in boating life!

It comes with a cockpit cover for use while moored which is in good condition.

The hull features a recent custom repaint job that contributes to the boat looking much younger than its actual age. The gel coat is nearly unblemished.

This 280 SS has been regularly maintained and the engine runs well and makes operating this boat a dream!
