Made the List Because: Ski boats, fish boats and speedboats all have very clear missions, making it easy to know how the boat will be used. A big cruiser is a different beast. One owner might cross horizons on family vacations, while another might enjoy sitting at the yacht club slip. One couple might enjoy quiet sunset jaunts. Another might have the gang aboard. Sea Ray's 450 Sundancer made our list because it excels at all these cruising missions. Sea Ray knew people's "cruising" probably includes all these activities in one measure or another.
