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.
The 220 Sundeck’s wraparound windshield is just like the one you’ll find on Sea Ray’s larger Sundecks, constructed of tempered and tinted glass. There’s a fiberglass bow block-off door below this windshield to limit air flow into the cockpit while the vessel is underway. This is another feature you won’t find on too many deck boats this size. For those who crave the wind-in-their-hair freedom that bow riders provide, the 220 Sundeck offers a pair of lounges up front with integral armrests and cup holders. These bow seats are deep and perfectly shaped for safe, comfortable reclining. They’re also hinged to provide access to big port and starboard storage compartments. At the nose, an optional telescopic ladder can be added for no-hassle boarding from the shore. Twin bucket seats welcome the driver and companion; both seats swivel and slide and have flip-up, thigh-rise bolsters. A lockable fiberglass head compartment in the port console means less dockside restroom stops, therefore, more time for family fun. The helm console and its soft-touch, keyless dash could be straight out of a luxurious sports car. The same could be said for the chrome-bezel gauges and lighted switches. In addition, steering is power-assisted, with a tilt wheel and integrated Vessel Control System (VCS) thumb pads that control the standard SmartCraft functions and the Clarion stereo with CD player, four speakers and MP3 port. A smooth-gliding throttle and shift with built-in trim connects to the standard 5.0L MerCruiser MPI Bravo III MCM (260 hp - 194 kW) gas sterndrive, which comes ready to rock ‘n’ roll with a stainless-steel propeller and remote oil filter. Based on a 21-degree-deadrise hull, the 210 has no trouble flying across the waves and cutting sharp, strong turns. Optional power offers a fuel-injected 350 Magnum MPI Alpha I MCM (300 hp - 224 kW). Located to starboard, behind the helm seat, an entertainment center serves the passengers, who can keep drinks frosty in a carry-on cooler with dedicated storage. An L-shaped bench provides plenty of room for guests to stretch out, while an in-floor storage compartment offers a secure space for gear and water toys. This hatch locks and has vinyl matting inside to protect all the goods. An acrylic door leads to the swim platform, where another big-boat item awaits in the form of an aft-facing bench. Sit back and watch the kids swim, or just bask in the scenery. The port section of the bench hinges up to give access to a huge padded storage compartment for skis and wakeboards.
