Founded in 1959, Sea Ray Boats is the world’s largest manufacturer of pleasure boats ranging from 17 to 61 feet, with over 40 different models. Sport boats, cruisers, sport yachts – you name it, there’s a good chance Sea Ray builds it.
Sea Ray has over 400 dealers on six continents, making it one of the best-known boating brands across the globe. And every boat they build is designed to meet and exceed both national and international standards, set by organizations including the USCG, NMMA, ABYC, and ISO. They’re also built to meet and exceed your expectations as an owner, and if history is any indication, they’ve been quite successful in this regard. In fact, Sea Ray has won multiple awards from the likes of JD Powers and Associates, the NMMA’s Customer Satisfaction awards, and a long list of marine magazines and publications.
For those who like to keep life on the low-maintenance side, the Sea Ray 215 Express Cruiser makes everything as simple as can be - from maintenance to piloting, to overnighting in complete comfort. There's plenty of room above and below to accommodate any activity imaginable, even if it's just doing nothing. Boarding the 215 Express Cruiser is safe and easy thanks to the wide integral swim platform with a handy transom door. In the cockpit, the port and starboard helm seats feature fiberglass seat bases with built-in storage compartments. The sound insulated engine compartment and seat are flanked by aft jump seats that easily convert to a lounger for sunning. If even more seating space is needed, an optional portside back-to-back lounger is also available. No matter how much gear comes aboard the Sea Ray 215 Express Cruiser, there's plenty of space for it in the cockpit side panel storage compartments, complete with rod storage and ski racks. There's even more storage space in the floor in a removable bin. A carry-on cooler with its own storage compartment on the passenger side keeps snacks and beverages readily available. When it's necessary to access the foredeck, integral steps allow sure-footed movement via the walk-through windshield. And the cockpit has a convenient snap-in carpet liner. The 215 Express Cruiser even comes with a standard Clarion digital cassette stereo with four waterproof speakers and a cockpit remote control. Below, a lockable sliding door opens to reveal a roomy cabin with marine-grade carpet, 12V lighting, and abundant storage. Here, the galley makes life easy with an insulated ice chest, freshwater sink, and standard pressurized water system. After dining on the V-berth table, it is easily stowed away so that two can rest in comfort on the upholstered V-bunk with filler cushions. There is also a portable head with privacy curtain. On the technical side, the Sea Ray 215 Express Cruiser has all the bells and whistles including power steering, power tilt and trim, a switch panel with illuminated weatherproof rocker switches featuring ISO symbols, an automatic bilge pump, electric bilge blower, and audible engine alarms for oil and water. There is also a tachometer with built-in hourmeter to take the guesswork out of scheduled maintenance. All gauges feature Sea Ray's anti-glare coating. The standard power plant on the 215 Express Cruiser is a 5.0L Alpha I MCM stern drive with 220 horsepower. With a host of options ranging from engine upgrades to a spacious add-on swim platform, it's a breeze to customize the 215 Express Cruiser.
