Spacious Design

Epic proportions

Common wisdom says that yachts are larger than life, but perhaps that gives life too little credit. Sea Ray designed the 540 Sundancer to be the size of life. Grand, perfectly considered. The optional three-stateroom layout means incredible space and comfort for all your guests, while a full-beam mid-ship master suite provides a relaxing oasis for owners. Living has never felt better.

SunGate System

Sun struck

If you think there’s nothing new under the sun, you haven't experienced the 540 Sundancer. In the cockpit, transom sun gates open to extend the already ample sunpad into a hub for relaxation, reflection, even elation. Get your vitamin D and nap in bliss.

Exterior Package

Colorful character

Enjoy color options expertly chosen to suit the discerning tastes of the Sea Ray owner, in gelcoat finishes tested over a series of years to prove their lasting quality. But that’s not all. The 540 Sundancer’s sleek exterior styling is accentuated by dynamic hull-side windows, which not only flood the interiors with natural light, but also look great from outside. Get used to getting double takes. 


Interior Package

Just like home

Change can be a very good thing. That’s why Sea Ray reconfigured the traditional salon layout and gave the 540 Sundancer a larger feel and a standard 50" Samsung flat-screen LED Smart TV or optional 55" TV. Multiple master stateroom configurations give you a choice of interiors that are as versatile as you are, so your needs are met and your preferences matched.

Fit & Finish

The Sea Ray way

From the four cabinetry options to elegant wainscoting, the 540 Sundancer delivers premium texture and style, exemplifying Sea Ray’s attention to detail. Plush, durable marine-grade vinyl is hand-finished on site, meaning every stitch of the upholstery is placed with intention. The finest crafts on earth are hand finished by artisans. Your Sea Ray is no different.


Generous Galley
Standard Features


A new media zone

In the 1940s, the salon was a room where you entertained with grace, and that definition holds true today. The 540 Sundancer’s inviting salon features an entertainment center with a standard 50" Samsung flat-screen LED Smart TV or optional 55" TV, a beautiful wood dining table and premium flooring, and a plush, convertible sofa. Just as a salon was meant to be: the perfect place to relax, converse, engage and entertain guests with ease.


Best seat in the house

Command your yacht and then, in a wink, join in any cockpit gathering with friends. On the 540 Sundancer, the innovative centerline helm seat pivots to form a large, unified social zone when the boat is at rest. Enjoy your incredible ride and trade stories with friends. You’re at the heart of your get-together wherever you are.


Call the Sandman

On the 540 Sundancer, full and peaceful rest is available to all through the generous three-stateroom layout option. The full-beam mid-ship master suite has a plush Queen berth, an entertainment center, and an en-suite head for the ultimate in privacy and accommodation. Additional staterooms offer guests ample room to enjoy their own sweet dreams, and finishing touches that deliver waking comfort as well.

Generous Galley

Fit for a chef

The smell of warm food is a sign that you’re already home. The 540 Sundancer’s large, well-equipped galley features huge storage capacity, solid-surface countertops and all the utilities needed to spend as many days and nights aboard as your heart and stomach desire.

Accuracy beyond measure

A car tire out of alignment—even by a fraction of an inch—forces the driver to constantly correct for a straight drive. Incorrect alignment by even a tenth of an inch on a boat causes the same disturbance in your ride. You shouldn’t have to settle on the water. Sea Ray uses cutting-edge robotic equipment to measure engine placement within four thousandths of an inch—about the thickness of a sheet of paper—to ensure every Sea Ray drives like a dream.
