Contact Jeff about this boat

A  classic old lady with 1150 hours on her MerCruiser 7.4L engines.  THERE IS NO MUSTY SMELL on this lady. This was the largest Sea Ray in its time.  This boat has a lot of modifications giving her newer appearance.  A large cabin with two staterooms.  In the redo, the open Salon is enormous.  The Head with all its cork walls is impressive.  Clean engine room.  All new canvas. This boat has been remodeled with aluminum extrude (will never rot), no outdated colors, no old rugs. This has the modern look with tons of storage space - more storage than a NY studio apartment. King size bed and 2 twin beds (bunk beds), so your favorite sheets will fit, and you can sleep as you would in your home.  One significant modification was removing the shower and enlarging the Master Stateroom. Just buffed and waxed.

Manufacturer Provided Description

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 styling—tame by today’s design standards—made a lasting impression on the mid-1980s sport-boat market. Below, her expansive two-stateroom interior is arranged with a king berth forward and bunks amidship. The guest stateroom is unique: it’s separated from the salon by a retractable mirrored bulkhead. The 390’s 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 17–18 knots (mid-to-high 20s top).
