Distinctive styling and an enormous full-beam interior are just two of the many features that made the 440 Express Bridge a popular model for Sea Ray in the mid 1990s. Like most “express bridge” designs with their space-saving V-drive power and low deckhouse profiles, the 440’s sunken salon utilizes the entire width of the hull to create a huge, wide-open floorplan laid out on a single level. With the engines under the cockpit there’s even room for an innovative midcabin stateroom—complete with a second head—beneath the molded cockpit bridge steps, something not seen in any previous express bridge models. Built on a fully cored hull with moderate beam and prop pockets to reduce the shaft angles, the 440’s huge, party-time flybridge is arranged with the wraparound helm console/settee on the centerline and additional bench seating forward. A walk-through gate in the flybridge coaming provides access to the foredeck with its built-in bench seating. The cockpit features a full bench seat at the transom as well as dual transom doors and a gas-assist hatch for engine access. Optional 340hp Cat diesels cruise the 440 Express Bridge at 20 knots and deliver a top speed of 23–24 knots.
