One of the most sensible boats of its size ever designed, this model is loaded with practical features like the spacious interior with very few steps, the wide, safe stairs from the cockpit to the flybridge and the pass through in the bridge coaming that provides convenient and safe access to the foredeck.

The interior layout is arranged with two staterooms and a large head with separate shower forward and a spacious, light and airy, full-beam salon offering lots of comfortable seating as well as nice sized galley. Overall, the combination of seating available in the salon, cockpit and flybridge creates an outstanding space for entertainment.

Interior Layout

A major advantage of the Mainship 40 Sedan Bridge is that this model offers an interior with very few steps or stairs, making her a safe choice for a family with young, active children as well as easy to manage for an older couple. Overall, this is an expansive floorplan for a 40-footer.

Entry into the main salon is just a couple steps down from the cockpit level through a sliding door in the aft bulkhead. There is a large L-shaped settee to starboard, spacious U-shaped dinette to port and the galley is forward to port.

Continuing forward and down one step, you enter a hallway. To port is a guest cabin with bunk berths. To starboard is a large head with a very large separate shower stall.

All the way forward is the master stateroom that features a queen-sized walk-around berth and storage drawers underneath.

The interior sole was recently re-done with teak luxury vinyl planks. The headliners are fiberglass and vinyl. The joinery is satin varnished cherry.
