With its Arctic white gelcoat, stylish graphics package, lustrous burl wood accents and a fiberglass sport spoiler, it's easy to fall for the Sea Ray 290 Sundancer based on looks alone. But to make sure it's just as appealing from a practical standpoint, Sea Ray included a wealth of operational systems. Consider just the short list: automatic bilge pump, electric bilge blower, power steering, power tilt and trim, dockside power, even a freshwater washdown with cockpit shower, and concealed dockside water inlet. The large, extended swim platform and transom door makes it easy to board from the dock or the water, especially since the stainless steel swim ladder can be stowed away in its own dedicated compartment. The 290 Sundancer has a powerful standard engine package - Twin 5.0 EFI Bravo II MCM stern drives with 220 horsepower to get away from it all, fast. An upgraded list of gas-powered twin and diesel stern drive options are also available for the 2000 model year. The cockpit on the Sea Ray 290 Sundancer was designed for maximum efficiency with features like a self-bailing fiberglass cockpit liner, full instrumentation with weatherproof switches and circuit breaker panel, a high water bilge pump and alarm system at the helm, a covered chart tray forward of helm and a curved, tinted windshield with power vent. Functionality aside, the cockpit was also clearly built for all-day fun with room for family and friends to travel in style. The seating arrangement offers a double helm seat with flip-up thigh-rise bolster for dual driving positions. The aft-facing seat has a storage compartment built into its base. For sun seekers, there's a portside sun lounger that's well cushioned and well within reach of the cockpit wet bar that has its own cooler and faucet. To gain even more space for sunning, an optional aft cockpit table that converts into a sunpad can be added. Finally, the aft bench seat in the stern folds neatly away for easy access to the engine when the gas-assisted hatch is raised. Inside, the spacious cabin of the Sea Ray 290 Sundancer has a four-person dinette that easily converts to extra sleeping space when not in use. There's also a roomy forward V-berth for a comfortable night's rest. Push aside the privacy curtain, set up the stowable V-berth table, toss on the standard throw pillows and there's the perfect conversation area. The cabin area has three deck hatches with screens and sky screen covers, four opening portlights, and four hull windows to keep it light and provide plenty of fresh air. In the mid stateroom, a double bunk provides perfect guest quarters with mirrored bulkheads, a storage cabinet, and a curved sliding window with screen. The 290 Sundancer also features deep stain-resistant 40-ounce carpet, and a Clarion AM-FM digital cassette stereo with amplifier, six speakers and cockpit remote control to further enhance the environment. Durable, easy-to-clean molded fiberglass is used in the galley countertop and sink area with 6' 3 headroom. Sea Ray included all the necessities like a standard dual-voltage refrigerator, recessed two-burner electric stove, a microwave oven and more. The head and vanity feature a full fiberglass enclosed standup head with a shower and curtain, power vent and a VacuFlush toilet with fiberglass settee lid. There's even a water heater and a standard carbon monoxide monitor to complete the list of cabin amenities.
