Manufacturer Provided Description
The 34 Trawler is romantically reminiscent of its best-selling predecessor, but offers even more power, more styling and much more spacious and functional living room. Whether used for long-distance cruising by an active couple on the go or for casual weekending and entertainment with the family, the all-new and improved 34 Trawler provides a welcome retreat whatever your particular lifestyle. Some key features on board the 34 Trawler include the generously appointed flybridge, upper and lower helm stations, plus an exceptionally inviting interior design to maximize your enjoyment and relaxation. Enter a world of simple, down-home comfort and practical luxury on the 34 Trawler! With a wide, comfortable 14'2" beam, this beauty feels especially spacious. The salon of the 34 Trawler sports a pedestal table and designer sofa, plus state-of-the-art 15" flat panel TV with DVD/CD and stereo system. The 34 Trawler features a gourmet galley that provides everything necessary for distance cruising in an easy-access layout. The private master stateroom is richly trimmed in cherry wood and features a queen bed, twin cedar-lined hanging lockers and private entry to the stand-up head. The 34 Trawler is truly one comfortable boat. For those of you who aren't flybridge people, or have a height limitation in your cruising area, the 34 Trawler Hardtop version is the answer. Enjoy the interior space and comfort with the added benefit of an electric sunroof that provides additional light and ventilation in the salon.

Entering the salon from the aft deck you will find a spacious interior layout.  The salon features all of the comforts one would expect in a larger yacht. The galley-down layout of the Mainship 34 produces a notably spacious interior.  A serving counter overlooks the port-side galley.  The galley is U-shaped with ample counter space and amenities for preparing meals.  

The forward stateroom has a centerline bed with large closet to port and smaller closet to starboard.  There are storage drawers under the foot of the bed and additional storage underneath the bed.

The single head is spacious and features a Corian counter top, stainless steel sink, tile back splash, electric head and large separate stall shower.

A lower helm station provides protected cruising and has direct access to the starboard walkway through the side door.
