340 Sport Fisherman
Length w/ Pulpit:
A popular model thanks to her raised bridge deck design and affordable price, the Luhrs 340 Sportfisherman shares the same hull as the old Silverton 34 Convertible (197888), a proven modified-V with generous flare at the bow, generous beam, and moderate transom deadrise. She was marketed as an inexpensive and fully equipped fishing boat complete with marlin tower, fish boxes, salt and freshwater washdowns, and recessed rod storage in the cabinall standard. The Luhrs 340 has a large bi-level cockpit (the bridge deck is raised just two feet from the cockpit sole) resulting in good helm visibility and adequate working space in the engine compartment. The helm console is positioned on the centerline with the companionway offset to starboard. Below, the 340s cabin is arranged in the normal fashion with a convertible dinette and V-berths forward. Note that the galley is quite small with little counter space. Teak-trimmed mica cabinets and a handsome teak-and-holly cabin sole highlight the interior. Standard 340hp gas engines cruise the 340 Sport Fisherman at 20 knots (about 30 knots top). Optional 250hp GM 8.2L diesels cruise at 20 knots (mid 20s wide open.
