1999 Sea Ray 280 Bow Rider



The Sea Ray 280 Bow Rider has all the power and performance of her sister bow riders, plus a redesigned cockpit layout for more passenger room than ever before. With large circular aft seating and up to ten guests can travel in style with space to spare for storage. In fact, the 280 Bow Rider features a bow seat and side storage, cockpit side panel storage, dedicated anchor storage with hatch, and a glove box at the helm.

The cockpit of the 280 Bow Rider is meticulously styled with a molded dash, burl instrument panel, tilt steering wheel and indirect cockpit lighting throughout. An all-day supply of food and drinks can be stocked in the full entertainment center. A dual-voltage refrigerator can store even more provisions. For convenient dining, the cockpit has a standard table.  And a self-bailing fiberglass cockpit liner makes maintenance worries a thing of the past. As always, Sea Ray's customary use of stainless steel hardware, high-performance vinylester resin, along with stylish graphics to ensure that the 280 Bow Rider will keep its good looks for years to come.

The electrically operated engine hatch hidden under the U-shaped aft seat lifts to reveal a powerful MerCruiser 7.4Ltr. matched with a Bravo III MCM stern drive. Operational systems built into the 280 Bow Rider are engineered with safety as a top priority. There's an automatic bilge pump, high water bilge alarm and pump, automatic forward sump pump, audible engine alarms for oil and water, a halon system, compass and more.

The Sea Ray 280 Bow Rider also features power tilt and trim, hydraulic trim tabs, a walk-through curved glass windshield and Sunbrella Bimini top. The integral swim platform has a concealed stainless steel ladder and walk-through transom door.
