Creative styling, a spacious interior and quality construction made the 420 Aft Cabin a popular yacht in the Sea Ray fleet both during and after the production years.  Aft cabin motor yachts look more like condos than boats, but the sleek profile of the 420 speaks volumes about Sea Ray’s ability to incorporate European styling influences in an American built yacht.  Built on a fully cored hull with prop pockets and underwater exhausts, the 420 has more interior space than seem possible in a yacht her size.  The three stateroom floor plan is arranged with double beds in the fore and aft staterooms, while the second guest stateroom extends under the salon sole.  The galley is down which allows space in the salon for an “L” shaped dinette.  Topside, a fiberglass dodger surrounds the aft deck, and molded steps descend to the wide swim platform.  Additional features include a spacious fly bridge, wide side decks, radar arch, transom storage compartment, and aft deck wet bar.  The Caterpillar 350 hp diesel motors easily cruise the boat in the 20 mph range while the boat can reach 25-27 mph.

The Sea Ray 420 Aft Cabin has three comfortable staterooms, ample walkways, and a cockpit 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 stereo with two six-disc CD changers and six speakers, or enjoying the TV - VCR combination. There's also a convenient raised L-shaped dinette with room for four.  Rich wood finishes complement the fully equipped galley, which features a flush-mounted three-burner electric stove, a microwave, refrigerator and freezer, sink, custom-molded countertop with new Corian covers, and a tremendous amount of storage space above and below. A Space Maker 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 double berth with full-size pedestal bed and plenty of built-ins. Both of these staterooms feature a standard entertainment center with TV/DVD combination. The 420 Aft Cabin also has a port stateroom with a twin bed for additional sleeping and storage space.   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 dual six-disc CD changers, 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. 

A beautiful 3 stateroom, 2 head boat with massive interior and exterior volume, QUEEN BEE will please and should be on your list for an aft cabin motor yacht.



From the large aft deck and into the main salon you will immediately notice the volume of space, magnificent cherry cabinetry, Berber carpets and light ultra-leather fabrics. To port is the entry into the master stateroom which offers a centerline queen berth, hanging lockers, vanity and mirror, storage drawers and an ensuite head with separate shower. In the salon and to starboard is the large “L” shaped settee with two pull out storage bins, which also act as ottomans. To port and forward is the large “C” shaped dinette and adjustable table which is elevated to give a panoramic view. To starboard is a wonderful breakfast bar with two stools and a view of the galley. Down a few steps you enter the large galley to starboard and to port is the third stateroom with hanging locker, storage, and a twin bed. Further forward is the day head to port which also acts as the head for the forward two staterooms. The VIP stateroom is in the bow with a centerline queen berth, hanging lockers, and storage drawers. 

Back to the aft deck there are port and starboard acrylic wing doors which lead to the foredeck along wide side decks. The aft deck has a wet bar and ice maker and snap in carpeting. From the aft deck and up a few molded steps onto the flybridge there are two helm chairs and a large settee along the aft flybridge which will seat a crowd.


Located down a few steps from the salon, the galley is large and offers excellent food preparation and storage space that will please the onboard chef.
