Length w/ Pulpit:
The Mainship 34 Pilot is an enlarged version of the super popular Mainship 30 Pilot, a versatile (and affordable) Down East cruiser introduced by Mainship in 1998. Where the 30 Pilot is essentially a day boat, the larger interior of the 34 provides the volume required for extended cruising. The first 34 Pilots were express models; in 2001, the Sedan version with an extended hardtop offered owners the added security of a semi-enclosed pilothouse. The well-appointed accommodations consist a roomy main salon with full-service galley and convertible dinette, enclosed head with shower, and a single stateroom forward with bi-fold privacy door. A TV on a swivel platform is mounted forward in the cabin. In the cockpit, facing bench seats behind the helm and companion seats can double as extra berths. A centerline hatch in the cockpit sole provides access to the engine. Additional features include a standard bow thruster, tilt-away helm, transom door, and wide side decks. The 34 rides on a semi-displacement hull with moderate beam and a deep keel. A single 350hp Yanmar diesel will cruise at 14 knots (1618 top). Twin 240hp Yanmar diesels cruise at 18 knots.
