We are proud to label this boat sold. Fort Myers Beach, FL OR BUST!!
This beautifully equipped and maintained Sea Ray 440 Express Bridge is perfect as a liveaboard, a multi-day cruiser, party boat, sunbathing platform, dive boat, or just about anything you can imagine. While classed as a 44-foot boat, the bow pulpit and swim platform provide an LOA of 49' 2". With this much cockpit, bridge, deck, and cabin space, the sky is the limit. The seller has had as many as 21 people on this boat before.
Walking up to the boat, you first notice the very large swim platform leading into the cockpit through two transom doors. Entering the cockpit, there are a transom bench seat and two folding cockpit chairs for relaxing with a cocktail. The BBQ grill will be included if you prefer.
Through the sliding door, shaded by a folding bimini, you find a massive cabin with a full galley, dinette that seats at least 8, two staterooms and two heads. There is also a cabinet with a washer/dryer.
The galley features an ample quantity of cabinets with solid surface countertops, a three-burner electric cooktop, dual voltage fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, and built-in NuTone mixer/blender station. The raised dinette has a large table with enough seating for at least eight and is convertible into a large berth for at least two adults. There are also two built-in chairs for relaxing and reading a book or enjoying your guests.
The forward stateroom features a queen-size bed, clothing closet, under-bed drawers, and a private door into the master head. This head features a full-sized walk-in shower, vacuflush toilet, and vanity. There is also a doorway from the head into the companionway.
Stepping down into the aft stateroom you find another queen berth tucked under the dinette, plenty of storage, and a private head that converts to a shower.
From the cockpit, you climb the stairs to the bridge featuring a full canvas top and surround with isinglass. Included on the bridge are a wet bar and seating for 10. The helm features full instrumentation to monitor the health of the twin Caterpillar diesel engines. There is a Raymarine radar, two GPS, one with up to date chartplotter database, and a depth sounder with fishfinder.
Foreward of the bridge are steps leading to the bow deck complete with bow seating, a sunbathing pad, and bow pulpit with anchor and windlass. The seller prefers this arrangement over a standard express cruiser so that any guests headed to the bow must pass by the helm to get there, allowing the captain to know where his guests are at all times.
The seller reports that this boat is built like a tank with great handling and a smooth and stable ride. He brought it to Florida from the Great Lakes down the Intracoastal Waterway on a 3-week journey. In 5 years of ownership, the seller has not had a single breakdown or any major maintenance issues.
This vessel appears in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition with a minimum of normal wear and tear for a vessel of its age.
The seller has replaced the flooring in the main walkways of the cabin with wood laminate and has enough laminate remaining to replace the rest of the carpet. He will include it with the boat if the buyer prefers.
Unlike most boats with the NuTone food prep system, this one works.
The isinglass on the bridge is slightly fogged with a couple of cracks/tears in some panels. The autopilot is inoperative.
60-day Sea Tow membership* comes standard with your boat purchase!
