This FRESH WATER 2008 Beneteau 343 is unique with low hours of use and lots of equipment just might be the boat that you have been looking for. A GREAT VALUE. Motivated you will note that the asking price is among the best on the internet. A GREAT VALUE.
Due to the incredible interior space and increase head room, many consider this 34' design superior to the currently available Beneteaus of similar size. The 6'5" and in some areas 6'7" headroom of this 343 is a joy to all who spend time below.. 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 unabtrusive. Simply pull the locking device and easily rotate the wheel from the standard sailing position to 90 degrees rotation and wonder why all boats are not this way. Expense is certainly part of the answer.
With this 343 Beneteau's Classic full mainsail you'll enjoy the better perfomance than the in-mast furling versions. The lazy jack system makes 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, Electric Windlass, custom covers for exterior teak, Flat Screen TV and even Genneker Gear. All of the standard options are included. Nothing to purchase to start enjoying the boat. She is a "Turn Key" boat.
Located @ Greers Ferry Lake in north central Arkansas you'd be hard pressed to find a better sailing area, but if you need to relocate the boat, Rooke Sails can do this for you with our "Air Ride" equipment and professional staff. Rooke Sails was the original dealer on this 343 and can transport 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.
