    Rinker 390 Express Cruiser (Not in Production) Line Drawing


    Captain's Report

    RINKER 390 EXPRESS CRUISERBy Capt. Ron SvobodaGood bye Fiesta Vee, hello Express Cruiser! There are so many changes going on at the newly managed Rinker Boat Company, that it's hard to keep up with it all. Well, one major change is the totally new 390 Express Cruiser that fits right in between the company's 360 and 410 cruisers. It offers consumers a big, live-aboard platform with sportboat handling courtesy of a pair of gasoline powered sterndrives.An Entertaining LayoutThis boat is all about entertaining and relaxing, which begins with the 390’s two cockpit levels. A port side transom gate leads into the cockpit’s aft entertainment zone, featuring a U-shaped lounge and removable snack table. This spot quickly converts into a queen sized sun spot with easy access to the substantial wet bar. The bar presents an L-shaped counter top with a flip-up blender nicely concealed below. To help keep the blender going, is a separate ice maker and refrigerator below the counter.One step forward and you are on the second cockpit level, which offers additional seating that is large enough for three adults, or one person to stretch out on the chaise. The helm is directly to starboard of the lounge and shows what a first-class express is all about. Burlwood trim encases jewel-faced Faria gauges, configured around a Raymarine multi-function display. But best of all, are the electronic engine controls from MerCruiser, which make for effort-less piloting from the dual command seat. Below deck In the center of the yacht is an open salon and well-equipped galley. Located to starboard is a crescent-shaped dining area complete with a teak table with storage space below the seat cushions. On the port side is a Corian countered galley with electric cooktop, microwave/coffeemaker combo, flat-panel LCD TV, and a polished steel sink. Located below the counter is a fridge/freezer combo and three large storage cabinets. Also to port, but aft of the galley is the enclosed head compartment. Featuring a separate shower stall and toilet area, the compartment allows for two people to get ready simultaneously. When it's time to turn in for the evening, the forepeak of the boat offers a private cabin for the owner and includes an island berth, entertainment center with LCD TV and plenty of storage space in the cabinets and hanging locker. Guests will sleep in the spacious, and also private, mid-cabin that offers up twin beds, an entertainment unit and its own vanity with sink. Overall, the 390 is not just a value packed cruiser, she offers buyers more sophistication and greater performance than you will find in comparable vessels, even boats that carry similar price tags.
