Substantial yet very sporty, the Legacy 40 Sport Express is an exceptional runabout. Her bridgedeck and cockpit are large and comfortably appointed, and visibility from the helm is excellent for even the shortest crew member. Though the engine compartment is directly underfoot, careful insulation and baffles keep noise levels well in check. A large, hydraulic-assisted hatch provides access to the engine. A single-piece companionway door to port allows belowdecks access to the Legacy 40 Express. To starboard there is a curved settee, a table that does double duty at dining height or cocktail height, an entertainment center, and room for dish stowage. To port, there`s a properly outfitted galley with a sizable refrigerated icebox, three-burner stove, oven, and double stainless sinks. A well-sized head compartment is just aft with dual access to the stateroom and saloon. In the forward stateroom, there`s a roomy island double berth with plenty of stowage beneath and in two hanging lockers.
