390 Express Cruiser
Length w/ Pulpit:
The 390 Express Cruiser turned out to be one of the most popular boats ever built by Sea Ray. First of the big production express boats when she came out in 1984, her sleek lines and European stylingtame by todays design standardsmade a lasting impression on the mid-1980s sportboat market. Below, her expansive two-stateroom interior is arranged with a queen berth forward and a combined galley-and-breakfast bar facing the curved settee in the salon. The guest stateroom is unique: its separated from the salon by a retractable mirrored bulkhead. Slide it away, convert the bunk berths into a sofa, and the area actually becomes a part of the main cabin. The 390s interior was updated twice over the years, changing from the original wood grain mica to teak in 1986, and to a white-mica/teak-trim decor in 1988. Topside, the single-level cockpit is huge with seating for as many as eight passengers. Twin 340hp inboard MerCruisers cruise the 390 Express Cruiser at 1718 knots (mid-to-high 20s top), and optional 375hp Cats cruise in the mid 20s and reach a top speed of close to 30 knots. Note that the sliding cabin windows are prone to leaking.
