Funny we all checked in except for the one he is looking for. From his profile it says he has a 72' so maybe he is looking for info in the lighting/name tag Starry has.

Hi
you guys are funny. Yes I have a 440, had it for about seven years and done a lot of upgrading, a hobby. I got the Cummins QSMs with 635 ponies each so it moves, however it is very economical at the right speed. Love this boat. I had a Regal before this one, ran out of projects for it so it was time for a new one, but this one is a keeper.Yes I am interested in the letters on Bob's boat.
Found this site by Googeling Trojan 440.

We should ask Les for our own 440 Express Forum!

Odvar welcome and yes please post pictures. I guess we really made it to 5 440s very cool. Those are some big motors please give us the stats on cruise and burn very curious what she can do. I have the 3126 cats I can hit 30 but cruise about 23-24 and average about 1 mpg or just under but not much. I've had mine 2+ years done a whole bunch of upgrades and love the boat.

Again welcome to the site, you have stumbled on a great site not just that there are a few other Trojans but a wealth of knowledge throughout the forum and a great bunch people.

I'm glad I found this site, I have a few things I like to learn about these boats and with 4 other owners it will be interesting. It will take a little time to put some stuff together an post it.I have been member of boatdiesel for several years, lots of good stuff about engines.One question I have is who made the hulls, Hatteras or carver, some or all? Looks like you guys are on the east coast, I looked at several there however it was too hard to find someone to truck it over to the north west.

If I understand correctly your boat was made completely by Carver. The older model such as mine and John were made in the Hat factory. Some will say they got better when they moved to the Carver factor I'm not sure how. I see very few differences between the years aside from the interiors and the helm. Mine is a 96 the first year they were made and it looks near new. Great boats but it has a Deep draft, that was a long thread in itself.
When did you buy your boat?

Yes...during the first year or two of ownership, the Carver built 440's were much less trouble to their new owners. Working for a (former) dealer that sold many of them throughout their production, I can verify this (with repair orders if you'd like). That being said, once the issues were taken care of, the boats were virtually flawless from then on through the production run

I got mine in 04.Any idea of how many where made? I have seen two other 440 here in Puget Sound, one is a hardtop. Unfortunately both of the could use some love and tender care. I have taken the BIG Trojan decals off my boat and it's interesting to see how many come up and ask if it's a new custom:)

Being that I bought Mine used I didn't not have to deal with any of these issue you speak of. I have nothing but great things to say about the boat. I have found it to be built like a tank handles like a dream I would mind the bigger motors but my fuel burn is great I have no complaints. I have enjoy several projects to dress it up. I have had a few thread with projects I have done, new helm and swim platform to name a few. I have no idea what my next boat will be but if it's built 1/2 as well I will be happy.

Mike Brooks welcome to the club although it seems as though you beat me to it. At this point I have met and been on 6 440s (counting mine)in my area plus the three additional on this site. I have no idea how many were made but I haven't met anyone that wasn't happy with theirs.

You need to create a Photobucket account (it free) upload your pictures to their site and the open your album and place your pointer on a photo that you want to share, several options will appear next to it click on the IMG file it will copy a link just paste this link into your post and it will open in the thread for all to see. It sounds much harder then it is, after you have done this once or twice you will see that it's easy.

BTW I didn't make the swim platform I bought it he was nice enough to take some pictures during the build. I had it shipped to me I helped to install it "helped". The dash I removed and had a friend in the Auto body business paint it then I ordered Carbon fiber laminate and refinished it. I replaced the radar mid season last year so I will be doing so more work soon. I'm lucky that I enjoy these projects because I couldn't afford to pay someone else to do all the work.

I'm looking forward to seeing you pictures and an answer to several question about the cruising speed of your boat.

Great pictures, I carry my dink on the platform too.Mine came with a davit that is mounted on the portside aft, not in the garage, works well.
OK, I cruise at 23 knot, 1800 rpm with a fuel burn of 32g/hr. WOT it'll due 32 knots burning 56 gal/hr, I don't go there unless I have to:) I swing 30x34 props on 2 1/4 shafts.It's a heavy boat, lots of house batteries,bow thruster,fourstroke dink and the QMCs are not light.It was a little faster when I got it but it was over proped, it loaded the engines too much so I had the spare set repitched and that freed up the engines and just lost 1.5 knots at WOT. The electronics on the engines tell you a lot of what is going on and they are bullet prof.

Very impressive numbers she is a bit thirsty. I too have four blade 30x34 props I think I have 2 1/2 shafts though. I'm a bit lighter then your boat I believe about 4000 lbs. I would love to add a few house batteries I will put them on my wish list. I have a davit in the garage it is just long enough to swing my dink past the platform I added. Thanks for the update if you need a hand posting pictures email them to me and I will post them for you. David at phonemd dot com

I like the fact that there a not a ton of them around. Most people that know the boats like the boats, the price seems to be somewhat more stable because there is not a huge supply. From what I have heard from several who have recently shopped for a clean one they are slim picking and still holding their own for price.

OK, I am checking in. It's been so quite on the forum I did not see much going on.

Odvar,
Nice to have another Trojan member on the forum. Did you purchase it from the state of Washington? I recall there was one for sale back then with the QSM-11's. There were not that many made with them as it was an upgrade. We looked at one in 2007 with QSM-11's prior to purchasing ours with Volvo TAMD-74p's with 480hp each and a criuse speed of 27-28mph. My wife and children love our boat and say it feels like a second home with the warm Cherry interior and 32" screen tv. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions and welcome aboard.

Do you guys have any interior pictures? Best looking express I have ever seen, I have never seen one on the water so they must be rare. You guys have a great boat IMHO.

Walter Mine is a 96' I have a maple interior but the layout is for the most part the same with the exception of the third stateroom of which there are a least three different designs I have seen. I don't have the third stateroom but both Starry and Hogan do however the design is different for both of them.


Being I don't have the third stateroom I added a filler for a third bed.


Other side of wrap around couch.


Master stateroom


Galley


I don't have any pictures of either of the heads or the second stateroom. I have found it to be a very comfortable boat both in port and under way. I had never seen me boat until I bought it then the day I brought it home to my marina I met Bob, I hadn't noticed there was another in my marina Bob was very excited to see another he spent at least an hour showing me everything about my boat he was very helpful. If there is anyone out there considering buying a 440 they are great boats and feel free to contact one of us with any questions.

Mike, my '99 has the same interior set-up and wood as yours.













Bob, he can't PM because he's not anchored. In any event, all questions about the boat should be posted here, for all to read and learn...

I love the look of the hard top it's a sharp looking boat for sure. My wife complains about not having a place to get sun but I love the look. Do you have any pictures that show the window in the front part of the hard top just above the windshield? How is the viability? I can see just a peace of the window in the starboard view of the cockpit.

Hi Bob
I tried to send you an e mail, however I get a window telling me that I have to be a subscriber which I'm, since I'm in here.
Anyway, may be you can send me your e mail direct?
I have been looking for a group like this for a long time.
Lots of great pics posted, I got some of mine ready and will get some more this weekend.

Here is a good example of the visibility, you do have to get used to it. I tend to migrate more towards the left side of the helm if running in a congested area. I do not find it any harder than running any other pilot house vessel.
