Sea Ray 410

Quintessential Sea Ray Features and Styling

There’s a lot of boat action in the 40-foot class in today’s new boat market and the all new for 2012 Sea Ray 410 Sundancer was designed to be a market leader. We chose the 410 Sundancer partly because it was a brand new model from the industry’s largest builder but also because this has the unique feature of allowing owners to choose from three different exterior designs: a standard sport spoiler model with canvas; optional open hardtop; or, an optional enclosed hardtop with electric front vents and available sunroof. While many new boats feature a fully enclosed hardtop with a sunroof, not everybody wants this. Sea Ray has made sure you can have it your way by offering these three variations.

Sea Ray’s new 410 Sundancer has a long list great features including an L-shaped wet bar in the cockpit that includes an optional barbecue grill, refrigerator in lieu of the standard icemaker and removable 22-inch TV with remote DVD. The cockpit also features wraparound lounge seating that can host a crowd and backrests that pivot to create several seating configurations including extending the length of the aft sun pad. Sea Ray calls this its “sun gate”.

The express cruiser styling of the Sundancer series is well established; in fact, it established the market! Today, this is the hottest market segment and new boats have to have great features to stay ahead of the crowd. Making sure the 410 Sundancer has the performance to go with the looks, there are standard 425 HP Cummins MerCruiser diesel V-drives but you can also opt for the Zeus pod drive system that includes joystick docking. It’s smart that Sea Ray offers both the latest and greatest pods and also the “old school” choices of V-drives with rudders.

A lot of effort has been made to ensure that the cabin areas are bright and filled with daylight. There’s an elegant dinette in the salon with what they call a satin table that cleverly folds away when not in use and you can convert the entire area to a double berth with a privacy curtain. Alternatively, for the owner who has kids or frequent guests, Sea Ray offers the option of ordering this area as a private stateroom in place of the dinette. This option includes twin bunks and a pocket door. The boat also features two full head compartments with showers, air-conditioning and much more!

Sylvan G3 CLZ DC: Luxury For Everyone

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
