Once in while, a truly great boat comes along, living an easy life in the Hudson River and later, the upper Chesapeake, with no salt crusting and corroding everything. That alone aids in a boats condition. Of course, dedicated owners must do the rest, being on top of maintenance and upgrades. "The Great Escape" is one of these boats. Updated Garmin electronics with integrated Smartcraft engine data, power steering, completed 1,000 hour engine service, bow thruster, helm AC, and lots of attention to detail. Just look at the engine room!

2004 is also last year of the 480 Sedan Bridge, with all the benefits of what Sea Ray improved on (research wet coring issues in in 1998-2002 models) this extremely popular cruising, three stateroom convertible. Also powered with arguable the best engine option with the top HP of the generation, the Cummins QSM-11 660hp and only 1,200 hours.

Her beautiful lines may be the first thing you notice about the 480 Sedan Bridge. But under that elegant demeanor beats the heart of a large beast - or rather, two large beasts - twin 660 hp QSM-11 Cummins MerCruiser engines. She's equally impressive inside, with three private staterooms, two full heads, three entertainment centers and sleeping accommodations for many people.

The 48 Sedan Bridge's comfortable layout offers a master stateroom forward with an island queen size berth with en-suite head with enclosed shower. A guest stateroom to port with a queen size berth with direct access to the guest head (also with enclosed shower) and a second guest stateroom to starboard, with two single berths.

The salon offers a dinette port forward, an L-Shaped sofa (which converts electrically to a double berth), a hi/lo table and two ottomans to port, storage cabinet port aft, two lounge chairs, entertainment center and storage cabinets to starboard, opening side windows with screens and curtains, custom Teak and Holly sole. Salon entry via sliding stainless steel glass door and sliding screen door to the aft deck. The galley is starboard forward in the salon.
