The venerable 470 Sundancer has been around for years but this latest redesign significantly alters the boat. Previously, her primary focus was as a dayboat for sunning and entertaining a small homogeneous group. For 2015, the new 470 Sundancer has an enclosed coupe and the layout was designed as one continuous entertaining space between the exterior cockpit, interior salon and fore-and-aft settee adjacent to the two-person helm. Below, there is a much larger mid cabin with a diagonal queen bed. The result is, that while the overall dimensions remain the same, weight has been increased 20% to 34,300 lbs. (15,558 kg) over the 2011 model we last tested. The design is much more versatile for entertaining and more comfortable below for luxury cruising.
