Like Marin, I have no direct experience of owning either vessel. However, I have known owners of both kinds. There are plenty of Mainships including 390s plying the Chesapeake Bay. Either boat should give you good service on the bay. Fuel cost will be probably the smallest cost you have in operating either one. For me there would be no comparison in accommodations and livability. Because of that I would go for the 390 hands down. They are both good reasonably priced boats.
