TURN UP THE VOLUME
Sea Ray’s Fly 400 has a surprising amount of interior space and a knack for versatility.
’m going to give away some sensitive information here, but only because it’s vital to my point: I tested my first Sea Ray in 1973. That entire boat would have fit in the salon of the Sea Ray Fly 400, with space left over. Space is the right word too, because that’s what this 40-footer is all about. The salon is high, wide and bright, with plenty of room to savor life afloat. The interior is airy, with oversize windows and triple-pane sliding doors that turn the
Icockpit into an extension of the interior. The Fly 400 is all about flow, because (unlike that itsy 1973 model) the boat is easy to move around. Having one level from the forward helm to the transom means there’s nowhere to stumble.
The entertaining area in the salon has an L-shaped couch with hassock so guests can enjoy ball games on the TV in the corner, while the cockpit has a lounge with table. The galley is to port and has a two-burner stove, Isotherm The optional extended hydraulic swim platform serves as a “teak beach” for swimming and a wide platform for boarding, plus it can stow, launch and retrieve a three-person Sea-Doo Spark personal watercraft.
