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!

Pursuit S268 Sport CC

By Andy Adams

The Pursuit S 268 Sport centre console is a do-it-all kind of boat with a solid sense of style. Centre console designs have been developed for the southern blue water sport fishing enthusiasts (and this boat would raise fish with the best of them) but the Pursuit S 268 Sport centre console offers far more utility and enjoyment than just fishing.

Bayfield Marine Turns 40 with Big April Events

(l to r) Holly, Adam, Pat, Ron, Shelley

Ron and Pat Reder started out in October 1984 across the road from where they are right now on the Bayfield River in Bayfield ON.

Expanding every few years for the store front, then moving over to this new building five years ago, this year with Adam, Shelley, and Holly are carrying on the business.
