If you lean towards being a new boat buyer but would like to find the value in a recent Beneteau 34, then this 2007 Beneteau 343 is unique with reasonable hours of use and lots of equipment just might be the boat that you have been looking for. She represents A GREAT VALUE.
Due to the incredible interior space and increase head room, many consider this 34′ design superior to many a currently available Beneteau. The 6’5″ to 6’6″ headroom of this 343 is a joy to all who partake. You’ll get the idea that you are in a boat more comparable to a 36 than a 34. Keel depth is only 4’7″.
The rotating wheel that comes with this boat is no longer available from Beneteau, but it sure is enjoyable in making moving from the open transom to the companionway unobtrusive. Simply pull the locking device and easily rotate the wheel from the standard sailing position to 90 degrees rotation and you will wonder why all boats are not this way. Expense is certainly part of the answer.
With this 343 Beneteau’s in mast furling handling the mainsail a snap. Everything is led aft to the cockpit. The manageable size of this boat is enjoyable and essentially is easily handled by a crew of one or two, yet you have room to take half of the neighborhood out for a day’s sail.
As for equipment, this 343 Beneteau includes Air Conditioning, refrigeration, Custom Bimini, Auto pilot, Windspeed/Wind Direction, and Electric Windlass. All of the standard options are included. Nothing to purchase to start enjoying the boat. She is a “Turn Key” boat. She was newly bottom painted in 9.2021 and given that most high quality antifouling paints give 4 years of service you should be good to go for another 2 plus years with no expense.
Located @ Wilson Lake in North Alabama. she just might be in the sailing area of your choice, but if you need to relocate the boat she is a days motor from the Tom Bigbee Waterway with the Gulf Coast a good memory making motoring away on her own underbody.
Rooke Sails relocated this 343 from Pensacola to Fresh Water in 2017 and can assist in another relocation within reasonable distances, re-rig, commission and trailer launch at acceptable ramps giving you a “Turn Key” purchase. No need to deal with separate shippers & riggers as we can do it all. Further, custom options can be installed by our capable staff.
Approximately $240k to replace, there is an exceptional value to be had for the person looking for a modestly used 343 Beneteau. A tremendous VALUE, tremendous interior volume and headroom all in a great sailing cruising boat with decent performance — if you have interest, please give us a call on our toll free number below and let us help get you make this Beneteau 343 YOUR 343.
