Offered as a co-listed boat with Universal Yacht Sales. 

A truly amazing and well cared for Mainship 400 that shows like a 2014 vessel.   The seller has maintained the boat above and beyond what most owners will do and it shows!  Not one speck of mold or dirt in the anchor locker or other exterior lockers.  You won’t believe your eyes when you see this boat!


As you enter from the swim platform though the transom door, you realize just how large the Mainship 400 Trawler truly is. The flybridge overhang allows all weather comfort in the cockpit area and along the side decks.  Through the large entry door you enter the salon area. The salon sole features teak and holly flooring (laminate) and hatch access to the engine room. To port is the large settee with ottoman. To starboard is the large L-shaped galley area and access to the flat screen TV and entertainment center above the refrigerator. Further forward and to port is the dinette with two matching stools aft and a bench seat forward. To starboard is the lower helm with sliding access door. Down three stairs, which lift to reveal the laundry area.  The guest berth is to port with access to the head across the hallway to starboard. All the way forward is the centerline queen berth with private head access and lots of storage (the bed actually folds up revealing a large under berth storage area). Back to the cockpit, the lazarette offers ample storage and access to the generator. Along either side of the cockpit and along the transom are storage areas. To starboard there is a straight, molder, fiberglass stairway that leads to the enormous upper deck and flybridge area. Complete with seating for a crowd, excellent visibility and a summer kitchen area, the bridge deck also features a folding table that allows upper deck dining and entertaining. Surrounded by stainless steel rails and a full Sunbrella enclosure, the upper deck will quickly become your favorite resting and entertaining spot.

Manufacturer's Description

The 400 Trawler shares the same prestigious pedigree of the best-selling 39, but has many distinctions all her own. Besides the especially spacious interior design, the 400 Trawler sports an expanded fly bridge with seating aplenty, with two tables perfectly suited for dining, plus a spectacular summer kitchen for grilling in the great outdoors. The helm stationof the 400 Trawler is well-appointed, with room for all your gauges and electronic options. The 400 Trawler's aft deck features a set of aluminum glass-paneled doors to really light up the salon. The design team paid special attention to the 400 Trawler's interior, extending the length a full three feet and maximizing accommodations throughout. The raised salon and galley on the 400 Trawler are crafted in warm, rich cherry wood. Watch your favorite show on the flat panel TV from the contemporary sofa (and optional convertible sleeper), or tune into the standard integrated Bose stereo/DVD. When you are ready to turn in, unwind in the queen-size island berth/master stateroom, complete with hanging lockers, drawers and built-in cabinets. The 400 Trawler also features a guest stateroom that offers twin berths, hanging locker and cabinets.
