The sleek lines of the Cruisers 3870 Express (called the 3870 Esprit in 199899) masks one of the more innovative interiors seen in a boat of this type. A scaled-down version of the companys 4270 Esprit (19982003), whats notable about the floorplan of the 3870 is her unique amidships stateroom with its standup dressing area, built-in TV, and a private head with shower. The wide-open salon includes a convertible sofa/dinette and a full-service galley with all the amenities. A draw curtain separates the forward island berth from the main cabin, while a bulkhead door ensures privacy in the aft stateroom. Notably, the main head contains a separate stall shower. Topside accommodations include an L-shaped lounge opposite the helm, a U-shaped seating area aft, and a built-in wet bar to port. A hatch in the cockpit sole provides access to a rather compact engine compartment, and the deep swim platform is designed to support a personal watercraft. Early models with twin 310hp MerCruiser 7.4-liter gas engines (with V-drives) will cruise at 18 knots (mid-to-high 20s top), and more recent models with the 370hp MerCruiser inboards will top out at around 30 knots.
