Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced as a replacement for the Egg Harbor 38 Sedan in 1975, the principal difference between the Egg Harbor 40 Sedan and her predecessor is the 40s larger cockpit dimensionssomething the Egg Harbor 38 sorely lacked. The original 38-foot hull was stretched, and the additional length adds much to her graceful profile. Her appearance was considerably enhanced when a new fiberglass deckhouse and flybridge replaced the wooden superstructure in 1978. Several interior floorplans were offered over the years with most of the recent models being two-stateroom layouts with a mid-level galley to port. In a significant production change, the original mahogany interiors were changed to teak in 1982. A large and unobstructed cockpit made the Egg Harbor 40 Sedan a popular and competent sportfisherman, and the teak sole and covering boards were standard. A Tournament Fisherman version introduced in 1978 moved the helm aft for better cockpit visibility. Standard gas engines cruise around 1920 knots (about 28 knots top), and optional 450hp GM 6-71 diesels cruise the Egg Harbor 40 Sedan around 24 knots and reach 27 knots wide open.
