An innovative cabin layout and a notably affordable price are among the attributes of the Ocean 40 Sport Fish, a good- looking open sport fisherman whose highly elevated bridgedeck and spacious mid cabin interior set her apart from most other express fishing boats of her type. Shes built on the same proven modified-V hull used in the production of her sistership, the Ocean 40 SS, with a sharp entry, a shallow keel and a relatively wide 14-foot, 2-inch beam. Rather than being a dedicated fishing boat, the 40 Sport Fish is better described as a capable fisherman with a comfortable cruising interior. Raising the helm several extra feet from the cockpit provides the headroom for the private mid cabin, but veteran anglers will note that communication between the helm and cockpit is compromised. A transom baitwell, tackle lockers and a transom door are standard in the cockpit; theres near-standing headroom in the otherwise compact engine room, and the bridgedeck is arranged with L-shaped lounge seating aft of the centerline helm. A good performer, twin 420hp Cat (or 440hp Yanmar) diesels cruise the Ocean 40 Sport Fish at 22 knots and reach 30+ knots wide open.
