New York’s Most Popular Boat Is….

Quick – venture a guess on New York State’s most popular brand of boat.

That’s a tough question: New Yorkers love so many boat brands and styles, and our state is fortunate to boast access to an ocean, inlets, sounds, bays, lakes, rivers, ponds and creeks. 

Still uncertain?  

Here are a few hints…

1)   The manufacturer has been building boats for 55 years.

2)   It is the largest manufacturer of pleasure boats.

3)   The brand includes more than 40 models in four classes of boats.

Give up?

If so, you just might want to stop by any of the three Modern Yachts locations and check out New York’s most popular brand – Sea Ray.  Come discover why nearly 25,000 boaters in New York have selected Sea Ray as their craft of choice.

Sea Ray is popular for many reasons: the brand includes enough styles and sizes of boats to appeal to families, daytrippers, wake boarders, socialites, and nearly everyone else who enjoys being on the water; the company has a long history of incorporating innovation, technology, and craftsmanship into every boat they build; and Sea Ray’s long history speaks to the durability of its boats.

One panel of Sea Ray boaters pointed out that in their experience, the boats are a good value, and that each boat has a favorable resale value. 

Sea Ray boats are New York State's most popular brand,
as evidenced by boat registrations. 
Another reason indicated is that Sea Ray dealers are factory authorized and trained to service the very boats they sell. That means that the service teams at Sea Ray dealerships are experts in diagnosing and servicing all Sea Ray models. Many other brands are sold through independent dealers who may or may not have service training for that brand.

Almost 25,000 New Yorkers can’t be wrong! To check out some of Sea Ray’s most popular models, schedule a visit with us or just stop by our Westhampton Beach, Hampton Bays or Mattituck locations.

Sea Ray's 510 Sundancer: Sporty, Speedy, Spectacular

When Sea Ray designed this “Sundancer”, they took the name quite literally.

Natural light spills into the Sundancer within the helm and below deck, thanks to the inclusion of an electric, panoramically-windowed cockpit. A generous six-foot windshield, coupled with windows in all directions, reveals open seas and skies. Below deck, the natural light, in concert with ample headroom, feels more “atrium” than boat.

The 510 Sundancer includes panoramic windows
for an atrium-like environment. 
Of course, the Sundancer name is not new in itself; it has been a highly successful series for Sea Ray. The sports-style boats and semi-yachts have offered an upscale, fresh approach to boating. It may appear that Sea Ray simply upgraded the 500 to the 510, but in truth, the 510 really breaks new ground for the popular series.

In short, the 510 provides all of the amenities, designer decorating and entertaining space you would expect in a yacht, and includes brawny power and a sporty design to give the 510 its designation of “sports yacht”.

With Twin Cummins QSC 550 HO Diesel V-Drive Inboards, the 510 responds eagerly to prompting for speed. But the 510 is more than zippy; its presence is solid, gliding through the water, almost unfettered by turbulences, wind, or changes in course. An optional Zeus joystick propulsion system makes maneuvering and piloting a breeze.

Some of the most impressive features of this superb boat include:

·      Sliding glass doors into helm area
·      Fully equipped gourmet galley
·       Comfortable seating for eight in cockpit area with Kenyon electric grill, including a teak cover
·      “Sunroom” below helm with plush Ultraleather seating, wet bar, and table for dining
·      Luxurious full beam master suite with private head, cedar-lined lockers, end tables
·      Guest stateroom with electrically reclining island berth, private access to a VIP guest head and plenty of stowage
·      Premium amenities built into every square inch, with uncompromised detail for comfort, convenience and luxury
With stunning design, extraordinary comfort, and superb attention
 to detail, the 510 Sundancer leaves nothing to the imagination. 

We could gush on and on about the superb amenities, the attention to detail, the fact that the boat exudes pure comfort - but let’s be honest: we do want you to visit our in-water 510 Sundancer in Hampton Bays for a demo ride and tour!
