Vessel Walkthrough

The 55′ Sundancer is perhaps the most desirable of all the different Sea Ray models. She is a “manageable” owner operator with a decent turn of speed and impressive sea keeping characteristics. There is a hard bottom inflatable mounted on the hydraulic swim platform. The engine room is full stand up height.

Pura Vida features a fully air conditioned helm deck with control station, rotational lounge, and full entertainment center with grill & fridge.

Down below you will find a most elegant main salon, galley, and two generous staterooms with en-suite bathrooms.


Down six teak tread steps from the Upper Cockpit is the Salon and Galley area. The Salon area is to starboard and consists of an Ultra Leather four to five person settee that can convert to sleep two. The settee is L shaped facing forward and centerline. Just inboard at the aft part of the settee is a high gloss cherry built end table with storage below. Above is a small storage drawer and a five shelf bookcase with a frosted glass and cherry trimmed door.

Above the settee are nine high gloss cherry storage cabinets. Just below are three large in hull deadlights behind cherry wood mini blinds. Next forward is a cabinet that matches the bookcase but instead contains the yacht’s entertainment electronics. They consist of:

  • KVH TV control center & service port
  • Cyber Home Progressive Scan DVD player
  • (2) Direct TV SAT TV receiver HD
  • Clarion 6 disc CD changer for outside stereo
  • Bose Lifestyle AM/FM/CD/DVD player w/hard drive storage system
  • Glomex Terrestrial TV tuner/gain adjustment
  • Aux “in” port

Just below is a high gloss cherry end table with two storage drawers. Overhead are eight halogen mini spots, LCD rope lighting behind a cherry soffit and a sliding cover to the Foredeck fixed sun roof.

The sole of this area is a maple hardwood with three access hatches to equipment and storage below.

Also in the Salon is a five channel Bose speaker system with a hidden subwoofer, a CO alarm and a small coffee table with storage within.


Opposite to port is the Galley area with a contiguous hardwood sole, a matching skylight above and three fixed hull deadlights with cherry blinds. The Galley is J shaped and offers the following equipment:

VIP Cabin

Forward of the Salon is the private VIP Cabin with a centerline queen size berth with maple steps to make getting in easier. Below the berth is LED rope lighting in the toe kick. Either side of the padded headboard are directional reading lights. Outboard to both port and starboard are two oval stainless steel deadlights framed in a cherry soffit and hidden by cherry mini blinds. An upholstered feature above the berth allows for hidden LCD rope lighting. Also above the berth is a sliding Ocean Air cover and insect screen for the Foredeck deck hatch.

  • Cherry shelves either side of the berth serve as nightstands.
  •  Aft to port is access to the VIP Head. The entry door is centerline.
  •  To starboard is a cedar lined walk in closet with two drawers and two cabinets, a hanging rod and two overhead lights.
  •  Next outboard is a Sharp Aquos 20″ LCD TV and a built in Cyber Home Progressive scan DVD player.
  •  Also in the VIP are two Bose mini cube stereo speakers, nine overhead halogen mini spots, a CO alarm, digital AC controls and a carpet runner.
Guest Head

The Forward Guest Head severs both the Salon and VIP Cabin by having two access doors making it the Day Head as well. The sole is ceramic tile. The toilet is a Vacuuflush model. The curved front vanity has a cherry storage door below and Corian countertop above with a under mount stainless steel sink. A beveled edge mirrored medicine cabinet is above the sink with two dim-able halogen mini spots above. There is a full size beveled edge dressing mirror on the back of the VIP door.

The stall shower has a molded seat, an opening frosted stainless steel porthole, a handheld or wall mounted shower fixture, a curved Lucite sliding door, a Lucite side light and an overhead halogen mini spot. Also in the Head is an AC vent, an exhaust fan and a storage shelf for towels.

Master Cabin

The Master Cabin is aft of and two steps down from the Galley. Entering from the forward end there is a queen size berth aft of the aft bulkhead with an upholstered headboard and an AC delivery soffit above the berth with three dimmable halogen mini spots directed to the head of the bed.

Either side of the berth are cherry columns with LED lights behind frosted glass. Outboard are port and starboard half height hanging lockers with cedar lining and auto lights. Going forward to starboard is a chest of four large drawers with a high gloss cherry countertop. Above is a large three panel fixed deadlight offering lots of ambient lighting. Next forward is the access to the private Head.

At the foot of the berth is a built in Sharp Aquos 26″ LCD TV. Below is a large cherry storage locker.

On the portside of the Master all is a raised two person dinette with a cherry table top and a padded removable vinyl cover. Above the dinette is a matching three panel hull side deadlight behind cherry blinds.

Also in this cabin are Bose stereo speakers, a hidden subwoofer, a carpet runner, a CO detector and eight additional halogen mini spots.

Of special note is the Wallhugger adjustable sleep system mattress with massage and tilt up foot and head positions.
