’ve been reviewing Sea Rays since company founder Connie Ray was still driving the train, and I’ve often used adjectives like well-built and family-friendly to describe new models. But when I stepped aboard the Sea Ray Fly 520, a different word came to mind: elegant. The Fly 520 is designed and built to standards not expected in a 50-something-footer. The salon, for example, isn’t called a salon; Sea Ray calls it the sunroom, which I think is a more accurate term. Windows stretch from seat backs to overhead, there are triple sliding doors aft, and the windscreen forward uses the tallest (6-foot-1-inch) piece of glass ever installed on a Sea Ray. The effect is airy and relaxing, connecting the indoor space to outdoor areas. Materials also lend an air of elegance. Grain-matched, glossy walnut joinerwork has swirls that run across locker doors and into the surrounding cabinetry, much as they might aboard superyachts from Dutch and Italian shipyards. Ebony in satin or high-gloss finish is optional.
