Ray of Light
With some 60 years of expertise in building marine pleasure craft, you could say that American manufacturer Sea Ray knows a thing or two about them. It’s hard to pick highlights from its catalogue of nearly 50 models, but Sundancer 320 and Fly 510 stand out.
The Sundancer’s overall length is just 10m, but it has a three-metre beam and a host of smart features. You’ll find an integrated swim platform, plus ample social space in the form of a wraparound lounge in the cockpit area, bow lounge and an optional sun pad.
Staying in for the night? The spacious cabin accommodates up to four guests with a pair of twin bunks convertible to a queen-sized bed. The microwave and fridge-equipped galley also means you won’t go hungry.
On that note, the Sea Ray Fly 510 is hard to beat. A 15m craft, it’s as plush – and as roomy, thanks to the added room accorded by its flybridge – as a modern luxury apartment. A full-beam master stateroom also adds to the feeling of having a home away from home.
With social and private spaces spanning three decks, along with a fully equipped galley, the Fly makes weekend getaways a breeze.
