This freshwater Beneteau 343 is a joy to sail with friends and family.  Easy to handle with wheel steering (that pivots at anchor) providing easy access to her swim platform for enjoying the beautiful waters of Lake Travis.  Her bimini provides excellent shade for warm, summer sailing.  Captain and crew will appreciate the ease of furling jib and in-mast furling systems.  Go below to appreciate her immaculate galley (includes microwave), private head, comfortable dining, sleeping quarters and air conditioning while on the dock.

She generates excellent income as part of the Texas Sailing fleet and is looking for a new owner to enjoy sailing her, while maintaining in the fleet.
