2003 Sea Ray 400 Sedan Bridge
A commanding and purposeful looking presence
By Mike Gridley
Many couples are looking for a used boat that’s roomy and comfortable enough to spend the entire summer on or possibly to head south with for the winter. That leaves the market pretty wide open when looking for that ideal cruiser for two. When boating friends of mine were in the market for a boat to fill this role, their choice was a 2003 Sea Ray 400 Sedan Bridge.
The 400 has a commanding and purposeful looking presence that speaks volumes about the design and evolution of Sea Ray’s ever-popular Sedan Bridge models. The proven hull, with an overall length of 44 feet and a beam of 14 feet 3 inches, is at home both on inland and coastal waters.
Typical to sedan bridges, the cockpit on the Sea Ray 400 is spacious and the flybridge overhang provides protection from the sun. Standard appointments in the cockpit include the removable seating and storage unit, a refrigerator, and easy access to the battery switches, key 12-volt circuit breakers and the fuel cutoff valves.
Access to the lazarette and engine compartment is from the cockpit, making servicing the generator a snap. However, working outboard of the optional twin 417-hp Cummins may prove to be a little tight.
