General Details

Stored under cover - 10' Avalon dinghy with 6hp - Twin Engine

"Persistence" is docked inside a covered shed and in Fresh Water.  She is in turnkey condition and ready to complete the Loop.   

The 390 was in many ways a benchmark design for Mainship. It was also the most successful trawler in the company’s history and remains a popular model on the used boat market.  

Instead of a traditional full displacement trawler hull, Mainship chose a semi-displacement design that maintains a wide stern profile. Depending on power, this allowed the 390 to operate efficiently in the 7- to 8-knot range while delivering fuel-efficiencies in the 2 to 3 nmpg range, combined with the ability to reach speeds as high as 18 knots in twin-engine models. 

Today, the 390 remains a prime choice for two major market segments: families looking for a roomy, cost-effective boat for weekend and vacation getaways and couples looking to do extended cruises. Quite a few of these boats have completed the Great Loop, wintered in the Bahamas and explored the Inside Passage.


Manufacturer Provided Description
The Mainship 390 Trawler blends today's technology with years of experience in crafting thousands of trawlers. Inside the spacious cabin, for example, is a lower helm station that's complete with full instrumentation and a windshield equipped with wipers and washers. The salon features warm teak highlighted by designer fabrics, a color television and VCR, a stereo, and opening windows with screens. Deck access is made easy for shorthanded cruising with a starboard helm sliding door. There is also a large screened sliding door to the cockpit. The 390 Trawler's galley is equipped for cruising or entertaining with a range, an oven, a microwave, a full-size refrigerator, an oversize sink, abundant cabinets, and Corian countertops. The large master stateroom has a center island bed, cedar-lined hanging lockers, an opening portlight and hatch, and again more storage. For guests, a second stateroom features twin berths along with a hanging locker, storage, an opening hatch and a portlight. And finally, the easy cleaning, molded fiberglass head offers a built-in vanity, a shower, an electric marine toilet, an opening hatch, a portlight, and a mirror. The power to travel is provided by a standard single diesel or optional twins. Both include freshwater cooling, an engine alarm system and a standard fire extinguisher system. To make docking easier, a bow thruster is standard on single engine boats and optional on boats with twin powerplants. On the flybridge there is a large area for entertaining or lounging, seating for more than six, and a drop-leaf table. The center helm has great visibility, full instrumentation, and plenty of room for electronics (note the radar mast). This deck is reached by a wide, molded stairway with a full handrail. Access forward to the anchor is protected by a high bulwark and a walk-around deck. In the cockpit there is more than ample storage with deep wells and a lazarette.
