We have a 2003 390 with a single Yanmar 370. The MS 400 replaced the 390. We've put about 800 hours on ours since we bought it in 2008. They are well built boats and we have had no issues with ours. As Baker said they are often described as the Ford or Chevy of trawlers. They were mass produced and a lot were built. However it all depends on what you are going to use it for. Mainships are coastal cruisers and serve that need well. They are not heavy blue water cruisers. They are great for a cruise down the coast and over to the Bahama's, but not a long offshore trip to Bermuda.
