Sea Ray‘s 400 Fly is the new entry-level convertible in the builder’s Sport Yachts line. (Her bigger sisters include 460 Fly and 510 Fly.)
This midsize offering is powered with twin 480 hp Cummins V-drive diesels. Joystick control for enhanced close-quarters maneuvering is optional. Stay tuned to a future issue of Yachting for performance numbers.
She should easily accommodate the cruising family with her standard her two-stateroom, one-head layout, including a forepeak master stateroom with step-up berth. Abaft here is a guest stateroom with three twin berths. If you’re willing to give up some closet space, there is a second head option. And if the kids bring some friends, the salon sofa converts to another berth.
Entertaining is at the forefront of the 400 Fly, illustrated by the uninterrupted flow from the lower helm located forward and to starboard in the salon to the cockpit. In between, two opposing settees in the salon are a great spot for cocktail conversation, and an L-shaped cockpit table is the setup for alfresco dining. Her flybridge is the go-to overflow spot with a U-shaped settee and a second helm station. A refrigerator, sink and grill are optional. There is also an option for a transom grill station, if you also choose the extended, hydraulic swim platform.
Some other options for the 400 Fly include bow and stern thrusters, isinglass, colored hull (blue, black, arctic white, shoreline and horizon.) You can go to Sea Ray’s website to choose your options and build your 400 Fly.
Look for the Sea Ray 400 Fly at the fall boat shows.
