390 Express Coupe
Loaded with upgrades and options, mechanically and cosmetically turnkey, and kept in the primarily fresh water of the northern Chesapeake Bay, this is not only the best available 390 Express Coupe, but also the best in quite some time.
With manifolds and risers replaced, an Awlgrip painted hull, and new Aquatraction decking, the boat is available for immediate delivery and will leave next to nothing desired for the new owner. Powered with freshwater cooled MerCruiser 8.2L engines paired with the desired SeaCore Bravo III sterndrives, the power plant is robust and able to hold up better in coastal environments with high salinity. A Kohler 7.5kW generator allows all equipment to be run when away from the dock. An incredibly versatile cockpit give multiple seating configurations, and the forward dinette cleverly features elevated bunks, making the boat capable of comfortably sleeping six – a feat unheard of for its size. Cockpit air conditioning and an easy to remove helm deck enclosure cool the helm area considerably and make it incredibly comfortable to run on hot days.

The bow and foredeck are easily accessed with cockpit steps and a 10” walkway. The windlass is sunken, a Cruisers Yachts design cue, to keep the foredeck unencumbered and provide more standing room. A stainless-steel spotlight is centerline mounted and windlass foot pedals are deck mounted making it easy to deploy and retrieve the anchor from the bow. The sunpad is equipped with the optional chaise lounge.
The optional extended swim platform vastly increases the amount of space when socializing or swimming, while simultaneously making boarding an easier and safer process. With Aquatraction decking on the platform, it is also aesthetically pleasing as the decking provides the look on natural teak, but without the routine maintenance while also giving a more comfortable feel thanks to its appropriately cushioned feel. When swimming and docking, bulk storage for fenders and water toys is easily accessed through starboard and port side consoles, also covered in Aquatraction decking. Shore power and dockside water and easily accessed through the starboard side console.
The cockpit sole is lined in newer infinity woven flooring. This matting is vinyl backed and will not dry rot and flake like the older style outdoor carpets. It also drains and dries considerably better than the products of the past. The cockpit seating layout is where the 390 Express Couple clearly distances itself from the rest of its class. Two L-shaped seating consoles flank the cockpit, one on each side. However, with just a latch to unlock, the entire port side seating console slides to the centerline of the boat to create U-shaped seating when the two consoles are put together. Furthermore, the port and starboard side backrest are electrically actuated and will fold to lay flat and create a lounge when bathing or tanning. When converted to its U-shape configuration, the teak, matte finished cockpit table lowers and converts the entire seating area to a sunpad. When this arrangement is combined with folding down the backrests, a true and massive sunpad is created. The matte finish teak table also unfolds to create a proper dining area as well. The cockpit is incredibly customizable and will fit however the owner desires to use the boat. Courtesy blue LED strip lights and a new Fusion stereo driven by six Wetsounds speakers, subwoofer, and amp make the cockpit an incredible entertaining area.
Forward of the cockpit seating features a wet bar to the starboard side complete with grill, sink, refrigerator and readily accessible switches for lights and all cockpit functions. Air conditioning outlets are also strategically placed to cool the area when the camper canvas is installed. Furthermore, the helm area can be cooled substantially when the enclosure is installed in conjunction with running the cockpit air conditioning. A custom, clever double track system allows the center door to slide out of the way without removing the side panels of the aft drop curtain.
Companion seating to port offers backrests to either lounge facing forward or aft, and its long enough to either lounge or seat multiple people. An incredibly large sunroof opens to flood the helm area in natural light. The sunroof is racked properly to allow plenty of air flow underway to cool the entire cockpit on hot days. Hardtop mounted LED lights can be switched to white, blue, or red to customize the boat and really make it stand out at night. Aquatraction decking has also been installed on the steps to the foredeck, forward of the helm with inlaid compass ross, and helm and companion seat steps.
The helm seat is double wide to house another guest, features a fold down teak footrest, and two air conditioning vents for the captain. LED courtesy lights, drink holders, and speakers keep the operator navigating in comfort. The pod style helm is ergonomically laid out to give the owner everything needed at no more than an arm’s length away. The Garmin navigation package leaves nothing to be desired as it features a fish-finding transducer, GPS Map 7610, VHF radio, and 4kW 4’ open array HD radar. The large VesselView7 flanks the Garmin to give easy to read engine information, and even features a Navionics based backup chart plotter. The Axius joystick system makes docking incredibly easy even for a novice boater. The system also features Skyhook that will keep the boat in its current heading and position with no input needed from the captain. This is perfect when waiting for bridges, slips, or setting lines. The Axius system has an integrated autopilot as well, a must have for extended cruising. The Fusion head unit is easy to reach on the underside of the helm. A tilt steering wheel, Mercury digital shift and throttle binnacle, phone holder, and spotlight remote control round out the helm area.
Below deck is accessed through a sliding door that can be locked in the open position and is also equipped with a sliding screen door to let fresh air into the cabin but keep the bugs out. Cabin steps are lined with low profile rubber stripping for non-skid properties. The optional Amtico salon flooring is beautifully accented by the Walnut cabinetry to give a rich feel. The forward dinette is as versatile as the cockpit seating. Ingeniously, the port and starboard backrests of the dinette fold up and lock into place to create elevated bunks. A matte finished teak table also lowers and filler cushions convert the dinette to a large sleeping berth. Coupled with the convertible dinette, bunks and aft stateroom, the boat is incredibly able to sleep six guests. The 24” salon TV is wired into the cabin Fusion stereo so the TV audio comes through surround-sound speakers on the forward bulkhead. Natural light floods the salon thanks to a Bomar overhead hatch, hull side windows, and skylight. All have shades for sleeping or to keep the sun’s heat out of the cabin on hot days.
The head is aft of the dinette, to starboard. A centrifuge toilet flushes with forced water instead of a vacuum like most boats of this size. This eliminates the maintenance involved in the VaccuFlush system. A basin style sink, large hull side window, and overhead mirrored medicine cabinet give the owner all the same comforts they are used to on land. The separate shower is accessed through a bi-fold door that locks open when underway. An adjustable wand, seat, and air conditioning vent make for a well-appointed shower for a boat any size, let alone a 39’.
The galley flanks the head on the starboard side of the boat. An aesthetically pleasing refrigerator in Walnut trim matches the rest of the cabinetry. A stainless-steel sink, cooktop, and microwave leave nothing wanting in the galley. Lots of overhead and under-counter drawers let the owner stock up for large trips and an easily accessed trash receptacle is installed under the sink.
The aft stateroom is accessed through the salon aft bulkhead door for added privacy. A large berth sits to the starboard side with a lounge on the port side for added privacy when the owner desires to escape the cockpit or salon. The bed has a nicely upholstered leather headboard and hull side windows on either side provide plenty of light, making it feel as if the owner is not below deck after all. A hanging closet, aft bulkhead cabinets, and underbed compartments give the owner plenty of options for storage. Reading lights and a 32” TV make for a comfortable lounging experience in bed when not sleeping.
Like the rest of the boat, the engine room is laid out with the owner-operator in mind. Twin upgraded and freshwater cooled MerCruiser 8.2 EFI engines are coupled with the desired Sea-Core Bravo III sterndrives making them much more resistant to the effects of high salinity environments. A Kohler 7.5kW generator sits off set to the port side and is more than capable of powering the entire boat. It is also quieter than most as Cruisers encased the generator in a sound shield, a luxury usually reserved only for diesel generators. All breakers and battery switches are easily accessed on the forward bulkhead while the strainers and seacocks are also easily accessed in the large open are in the forward, center section of the engine room. Overhead LED lights make it incredibly easy to work or diagnose anything in the area.
Maintained with an open checkbook, the boat is in incredible shape and ready for a new home.

Born into a boating family, my father instilled the boating gene in me from a young age. Growing up in Chicago and spending summers in Northern Michigan, I fell in love with boating and the Great Lakes. I got my 100T Captain's license during College to work as a transport captain during the summers. After school, I couldn't imagine leaving the industry and moved to Baltimore, MD for my first job in boating. After ten years in Maryland, I moved to the Ft. Lauderdale area.
When I'm not working, I can usually be found cruising around on my center console with friends and my yellow Labrador Retriever, Stella.
