This 390 will be the third Mainship sold by me in 2015!  Contact me to sell yours.  I guarantee it will sell!  

The Mainship 390 is a stylish, moderately priced sedan trawler with classic lines and a good turn of speed.  Unlike a true trawler with a full displacement hull, the 390 is built on a faster semi-displacement hull with flat after sections and a shallow, full length keel.  The Mainship 390 is a big boat inside thanks to her 14 foot beam, and floor plan which manages to include large berths in both staterooms as well as a separate shower stall in the shared head.  Visibility from the lower helm is excellent and a deck door provides easy access to the foredeck.  Aft, a sliding glass door opens to the covered cockpit where there is series of molded steps (instead of a ladder) ascends to the extended flybridge.  Additional features include deep, well protected side decks, and integral swim platform, transom door, a full teak interior, and folding radar mast. 

The Mainship 390 Trawler features a large, uncluttered flybridge with plenty of seating and storage.  Wide molded fiberglass steps replace the traditional ladder.  Below spaces offer custom cabinetry, thick pile carpets in the staterooms and hall, and teak and holly flooring in the main salon.  A spacious salon, workable galley, easy to maintain head and truly comfortable staterooms are incorporated to provide good flow and the most usable space afloat.  Mainship trawlers were made with the highest of manufacturing standards, boat design, comfort and reliability.  The build process included fabrication on-site of most components such as rails, furniture, and wiring providing high-quality prompt delivery and an affordable price. 

The Mainship 390 is one of the most popular yachts built by Mainship.  Although Mainship is now out of business, the company was purchased my Marlow Marine and the new models will be known as the Marlow Mainship.


Easy to maneuver aboard the 390 you step onto the wide swim platform and through the transom door and into the cockpit which is protected overhead by the flybridge overhang.  In the cockpit coaming are two large, self-draining storage or fish boxes.  There are two cockpit lazarettes, one aft reveals the steering mechanism and allows storage and one forward which houses the generator and storage.  You can walk completely around the 390 using the wide side decks with high safety rails and deep bulwarks.  Along the starboard side is access into the helm area by a sliding door, making docking even easier.  Back to the cockpit there is a molded fiberglass stairway leading up the enormous flybridge.  The aft bridge deck has ample room for several deck chairs.  There is a stanchion mounted BBQ grill along the port side of the aft bridge deck as well as the propane locker with two 3 lbs. propane tanks in a protective storage box.  The bridge is protected by a complete dark blue Sunbrella bimini and there is dark blue Textlene along the deck coamings.

The bridge area offers a centered helm seat and port and starboard long settees with cushions and storage underneath.  In the center of the helm area is a large folding table affording the ability to dine al-fresco.  The table also has a self-draining storage compartment in the center.  The helm visibility is excellent and the engine instrumentation and navigation equipment are all within easy site and reach.  There are full Stamoid white protective covers for the helm, helm chair, and side settees. 

Back to the cockpit and through the sliding entry door (with sliding screen as well) you enter the main cabin.  To port is a nice cabinet with fold down doors along the bottom, a sliding black acrylic door in the center and several cabinets for storage.  On top of the cabinet is a large shelf and the salon television is mounted above with a mount allowing the television to fold up and out of the way.  Further forward and to port is the “L” shaped galley area with ample Corian countertop spaces, storage cabinets, and appliances to please the onboard chef.  To starboard and on the bulkhead inboard is the electrical panel.  The starboard side also has a large settee which converts into full size berth and a high/low dining table with one folding leaf.  All the way forward and to starboard is the lower helm area with a sliding exit door.  The helm visibility is excellent and the array of electronics and engine instruments in impressive.  The windshield and large side windows offer a panoramic view outside and the center windshield opens for ventilation.

Centered forward and down three steps (with storage under the steps) is access into the lower cabins.  To port is the guest cabin with twin berths, cedar lined hanging locker, bookshelf and ample under berth storage.  Across from the guest cabin is access into the shared head.  The head is large with molded fiberglass sink and vanity, VACU-FLUSH toilet and a separate shower stall with folding door.  All the way forward is the master cabin with a queen center-line berth with two storage drawers under the berth and the berth lifts to reveal hidden storage.  The port and starboard sides offer cedar lined hanging lockers, cabinets with shelving, and outboard storage shelves.


The “L” shaped galley is located in the main cabin along the port side and forward.  The galley area is impressive with plenty of space for storage and food preparation which will please even the most discriminating chef.
