Manufacturer Provided Description

With a fresh Euro-look, the Sea Ray 400 Express Cruiser is one stylish sport yacht. Its design evolution is the result of listening to sport yacht owners, then incorporating their ideas into the 400 Express Cruiser. The 400 Express Cruiser presents a sleek deck with extensive use of stainless steel in all external fittings, including the bow rail and deck runners. Powered by twin 7.4L, 380 hp - 283-KW inboards, the Sea Ray 400 Express Cruiser extends trips with its 300-gallon fuel capacity. Adjustable double helm and companion seats face a burl instrument panel. Standard Raytheon electronics package includes GPS, VHF, and Raydata multifunction instrument with depth finder, speed - sumlog, and water temperature. The curved tri-section tinted glass windshield with electric front vent allows better viewing and increased air flow. The fiberglass sport spoiler provides room for mounting electronic equipment. A refreshment center with wet bar, sink, cooler, and icemaker is conveniently located in the cockpit beside the aft-facing portside cockpit seat. To starboard, the U-shaped aft bench seating with hi - lo table can be converted to a sunpad. Swimmers and divers can come aboard easily thanks to the fold-down stainless steel swim ladder. A hot and cold transom shower is conveniently located at the wide swim platform. Integral fender storage keeps the transom area tidy. The standard Lofrans Progress I rope - chain windlass with foot switches provides easy anchoring. In the salon, a granite-look fiberglass table converts the sofa to a dining area. Passengers may relax on the sofa and enjoy the entertainment center with TV - VCR combo and Clarion AM - FM digital cassette stereo with six-disc CD changer, amplifier, subwoofer with eight speakers, and cockpit remote. The sofa converts to a double berth that sleeps two adults. In the master stateroom, a full-size pedestal bed provides room for two adults to stretch out. There's a vanity with upholstered settee, two hanging lockers with mirrored doors, and a screened hatch to admit natural light and ventilation. The stateroom has its own private TV - VCR combination. Close the circular pocket door and the starboard sitting room converts to an intimate private stateroom with full-size bed and convertible upper bunk. A mirrored hanging locker stores clothing. The galley features an upright 6.3-cubic-foot refrigerator - freezer for easy access and plenty of room for perishables. A three-burner electric stove, microwave, and coffeemaker add to your ease and convenience. The head compartment features a vanity with sink and storage, VacuFlush toilet, mirrored medicine cabinet, and a fully lined fiberglass shower compartment with bifold door.
