The Sea Ray 245 Weekender provides style, comfort and every convenience imaginable in a sport boat, both on deck and below. At the helm, gorgeous burl wood accents, a chrome steering wheel, and a premium Clarion AM-FM digital cassette stereo with cockpit remote control and four waterproof speakers, evoke the feeling of piloting a luxury craft. The standard seating plan, which includes port and starboard helm seats with flip-up bolsters and fiberglass storage bases, as well as a removable aft jump seat that forms a spacious sun lounger, provides comfortable seating for everyone. An optional plan is also available which replaces the port helm seat with an adjustable back-to-back lounger. Sea Ray has outfitted the new 245 Weekender with a carry-on cooler with its own dedicated storage, a 12-volt receptacle for a cell phone, cockpit side panel compartments with ski racks and rod storage, generous floor storage, and dedicated fender storage in the aft transom wall. The standard power plant, the spirited 5.0L, 220 horsepower Bravo II stern drive, means the 245 Weekender has all the get-up-and-go needed to enjoy every waterborne activity to the maximum. The foredeck is easily accessed by way of integral fiberglass steps (built right into the sliding cabin door) and a walk-through tempered curved glass windshield. Below, a spacious, lighted cabin awaits with a comfortable V-berth and table that stows neatly away so that dining space quickly becomes sleeping space when the upholstered filler cushions are added. The galley comes complete with a sink and faucet as well as storage above and below the countertop. And of course, there's also a portable head compartment with a privacy curtain. A pressurized water system comes standard. Technical features on the Sea Ray 245 Weekender are designed to provide the utmost confidence for an extended outing. The long list of standard equipment includes audible engine alarms, automatic bilge pump, electric bilge blower, weatherproof electronic switch pad, depth finder, compass, plus Sea Ray's backlit low-glare, anti-fog, night-lighted instrumentation. There's even a carbon monoxide monitor in the cabin, a safety standard on all Sea Ray models. There are also amenities like power steering, power tilt and trim, hydraulic trim tabs, and much more, along with an extensive list of useful optional additions.
