SEA RAY 260 Sundancer


2002 • 28' (8.53 m) • Cruiser
United States

$29,900 USD

The RAINMAKER is a 2002 SEA RAY 260 Sundancer. She's powered by the MERCRUISER 383 Mag Stroker with Bravo III Stern Drive. Please note that this engine was new in 2016 and has only logged under 300 hours to date!

This "260 Sundancer" model has proven to be one of the most popular "pocket cruisers" ever produced and is certainly another success story for SEA RAY. The RAINMAKER is a very nice, clean and low-time example to consider. Her Dark Blue SUNBRELLA canvas is also relatively new. The combination of the RAINMAKER's features & excellent condition and the new engine in 2016 all make for an attractive package!

The Owner of the RAINMAKER is presenting her for brokerage sale as a return to "sail" is being actively considered! Clients who are looking for just what she's offering are urged to "have a look". You won't be disappointed.
