The Sea Ray 480 Sedan Bridge is truly a magnificent vessel for something under 50 foot. A 3 cabin, 2 bathroom layout provides you and your guests with comfort, privacy and luxury when staying aboard for extended periods. You will be inclined to sell the house and live on board it is that spacious.
Starting from the invaluable hydraulic swim platform, there is no need to stress when launching your tender. Bow mounted davits and tenders can be precarious when the wind picks up and also ruin the clean lines of these sporty "Sedan Bridge" models. The ease of simply plugging in the remote and lowering your tender into the water will make day trips more enjoyable and afford you and your guests or kids more freedom to explore. On warm days simply launch the tender, tie it along side and leave the platform submerged for a large area to stay cool.
The cockpit lounge easily seats 4 adults across, and a folding table and chairs could simply be set up to eat meals from downstairs. Having a solid moulded staircase as opposed to a ladder allows easy ascent into the flybridge, especially when carrying drinks and platters to the sizable entertaining area. Whilst the skipper steers the vessel from the comfortable wing back chairs, several guests can sit comfortably forward of the helm station around the table and stay involved in conversation. A bar fridge under the sink is a nice addition to the flybridge as well. An overhead mounted chart plotter and sounder keeps the skipper's eyes up, and leaves more space for the impressive array of equipment on this vessel's dashboard.
Sea Ray really know how to fit out their interiors with luxurious materials and wood trim across their range. This 480 is no exception, with 2 lush leather lounges including the 5 seater dinette. The Bose entertainment system is housed in a cabinet underneath an impressive liquor reserve. A galley that would rival a one bedroom apartment's in size gives competent chef's the space to prepare those summer meals we all enjoy when staying aboard. Another impressive feature is the single level floor from the cockpit all the way through to the cabin's forward staircase giving the saloon an expansive feel.
The forward master cabin boasts a walk around queen bed and surprisingly large ensuite, free of clutter or awkward bulkheads. To port you have a large guest cabin with secondary access to the day head. The starboard guest cabin has 2 singles bunks perpendicular to one another and access to the washer/dryer, a luxury you wont be able to do without for those longer stays at Rottnest or the Abrolhos!
The twin Cummins QSM 11 660HP diesels are economical, smooth and reliable. They effortlessly push the 48 footer up to 30 knots, or a comfortable cruise speed of 20 knots at 1750RPM burning 120L p/hr.
