Thorns and Roses
There are two ways to get to the bow aboard the 350 Sundancer. Either take the molded steps through the windshield or use the generous side-decks. Although I liked the wide open access to the anchor rode locker - many boats don't provide such access - I was disappointed to see the windlass wiring crossing part of the space. It should be run tight to the bulkhead and secured along the underside of the deck to connect with the windlass.
You'll be pleased to find a total of three refrigerators aboard. Between the drawer and built-in units in the galley, and the one at the cockpit wetbar, you won't need to haul a cooler. There's a separate stall shower in the head, but I was disappointed when I saw that the towel ring protruded at hip level beside the vanity. It's sure to bruise someone.
In the aft cabin, I was tickled at the headroom and stowage, and the way in which the aft sofa seat cushion slides out to form a berth. However, the privacy curtain's valance gets in the way of fully deploying the cushion.
The forward master cabin's berth is equipped with an electrically adjustable recliner. It's easy to get in and out of, and reading lamps are strategically placed and wired with three-way switches so that they can be controlled from either the salon or while lying in the berth. Luxuriating here is the ultimate in self-indulgence. But it leads me to the biggest problem I discovered while testing the 350 Sundancer - deciding whether to kick back here or in the cockpit. All the comforts are available in both locations.
Extra Point: To prevent crabbing and counteract the effect of counter-rotating transmissions, Sea Ray installs props with slightly different pitches (20" and 20.5").
