1998 Sea Ray 420 Aft Cabin

Sausalito, California

$125,000

Aft cabin motoryachts can end up looking more like a condominium than a boat but the Sea Ray 420 Aft Cabin has soft, sweeping lines and proportions that call to mind express cruisers--in fact, standing on the aft deck it is easy to forget that there is a cabin directly below. And I guess this shouldn't be surprising as Sea Ray helped pioneer aft-cabin concept...

This particular example is the two stateroom version with laundry room option in lieu of third stateroom, fully enclosed aft deck and flybridge, new Garmin 7610 series electronics in 2018 (including chartplotter, radar, and autopilot), 50 amp shore power service and Westerbeke genset, low time (less than 750 hours!) on the optional Cat 3126 diesels.

Note those Cat diesels are an expensive and desirable upgrade over the standard gas MerCruisers, and this vessel is priced very VERY competitively by a motivated out of state owner.

New listing as of October 7, 2021, full specs up shortly...

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Sea Ray 420 Aft Cabin has three comfortable staterooms (or two if you opt for the washer/dryer), ample walkways, and a swim platform that can accommodate a host of guests with ease. Below, the wide-open cabin allows passengers to enjoy a sumptuous interior noted for its quietness thanks to Sea Ray's patented underwater exhaust system, which reduces engine noise significantly while underway. An L-shaped salon sofa with pull-out ottomans provides a relaxing atmosphere for listening to the standard Clarion AM-FM digital cassette stereo with a six-disc CD changer and six speakers, or enjoying the TV - VCR - radio combination.

There's also a convenient raised L-shaped dinette with room for four (and this can be replaced by an optional lower control station). Rich wood finishes complement the fully equipped galley, which features a flush-mounted three-burner electric stove, a microwave, refrigerator with freezer, sink, custom-molded countertop with new Corian covers, and a tremendous amount of storage space above and below. A Spacemaker coffee maker also comes standard on the 420 Aft Cabin.

The staterooms are lavish, from the aft master stateroom with queen-size bed and innerspring mattress, abundant storage, and full master head with shower; to the forward stateroom V-berth with full-size pedestal bed and plenty of built-ins. Both of these staterooms feature a standard entertainment center with TV - VCR - radio combination. The 420 Aft Cabin also has a port stateroom with twin beds for additional sleeping and storage space, or it can be replaced by an optional, fully equipped laundry room for more “at-home” comfort.

Above, passengers can congregate on the roomy aft deck of the Sea Ray 420 Aft Cabin in any weather because it's protected by a fiberglass hardtop, custom fiberglass skirts, and acrylic entrance doors to port and starboard. The smooth, clean profile means there are no steps to the foredeck. A transom door allows easy access to the swim platform where there's an oversized storage compartment with gas-assisted hatch and automatic sump pump. The forward-mounted bridge helm affords the captain better visibility forward and aft, while guests have a wide open space to enjoy the bar and Clarion AM-FM digital cassette stereo with its six-disc CD changer, subwoofer, four speakers, all remotely controlled from the cockpit. The seating arrangement includes two custom slide and swivel helm seats, an aft-facing sun lounger and a bench seat. Courtesy lights, snap-in carpet, and beverage holders are also part of the appealing setting.

The 420 Aft Cabin also includes a wealth of standard systems like the digital LCD systems monitor, remote start generator, Raytheon electronics, anchor washdown hookup, portside storage concealing a dedicated shore power inlet and much, much more. Powerful twin gas 454 Mag MPI Horizon MerCruiser inboards (T-380 hp - 283 kW) with freshwater cooling are standard with Cat diesels available as an option; combined with a 350-gallon fuel capacity, either configuration make sure the 420 Aft Cabin can go anywhere with absolute confidence, even in big water.
