The current owner purchased this boat a little over four years ago with just under 1,000 hours. Their goal was to enhance their family’s boating experience. Instead of putting the boat away for the winter in New Jersey, they decided to move the boat south each winter to give them the opportunity to use the boat frequently in warmer climates. They’ve had some great times on this boat while adding many upgrades and following strict maintenance guidelines. Their lifestyle is changing again and they are looking forward to their next adventure. They are in search of the next caretaker for this beautiful boat.

With her two-stateroom, two-head layout, convertible saloon, and ample stowage, she’s perfect for two couples or a young family to cruise.
There’s a large, spacious climate controlled bridge accessed from the cockpit via a wide, molded-in staircase whose two bottom steps are about 3’6″ wide. A sturdy rail to starboard and a grabrail to port flank these and the six other steps leading topsides. The flybridge table and six-person, C-shape seating area aft of the centerline helm, with plenty of stowage areas below the cushions, is definitely the place to be while underway. Having a bridge obviously means better views into the seaway, and even with the full enclosure up, You can enjoy commanding sightlines all around. The centerline helm has the pod-type control panel that has proven to be a winner in the Sea Ray line.
Perhaps the most striking and successful adaptation on the 440 Sedan Bridge is in the use of interior space. There are opposing UltraLeather couches in the saloon. The port one converts to a double berth, while the starboard one offers a stowage compartment below, and there’s a raised dining area amidships and to port that easily seats four adults. Both areas offer excellent views, whether through the three large windows forward, those to either side, or out the aft sliding glass door.
Another spatial feature worth noting is the galley, down and to starboard. While headroom in the saloon measures more than 6’5″, down the three steps to the galley it’s a whopping 9’6″. The 440 has a well-equipped galley that features ample stowage in cabinets and drawers, Corian countertops, a Panasonic microwave/convection oven, a two-burner electric stovetop, a three-quarter size Norcold refrigerator and freezer, and the can’t-do-without Black & Decker coffee maker in its own cabinet. There is additional stowage beneath a hatch in the galley sole and in a pantry with seven shelves that’s just forward in the hallway to starboard. Plenty of space for ship’s stores for extended cruising.
Sea Ray produced a port-side stateroom containing a double berth and an impressive overhead clearance of 6’8″ that tapers to just over four feet. A cedar-lined locker is also provided, and the day head is just forward of here. The forepeak master has an ensuite head, and its centerline queen island berth has stowage beneath the mattress as well as in two drawers in its base, a pair of cedar-lined lockers, and ample, bulkhead-mounted cabinets.
