MARINE TRADER HISTORY:
Having introduced this model in 1973, Marine Trader has incorporated eighteen years of improvement to bring us this 1991 model, the twin cabin/two head yacht presented here. Years of market and owner feedback have facilitated a refined layout, improved materials and systems to 'get it right.' She lives like a 40' yacht and drives like a 30' yacht. What could be better? She offers maximum and efficient use of all available space to enhance cruising comfort and long-term livability. There are several features that set this yacht apart from all the others in this size/class range. First, the original owner upgraded her power from the standard Ford-Lehman 135 HP to the 210 HP Cummins diesel engine. With the high cost of fuel today, having the larger more powerful engine allows for comfortable cruising at lower RPMs, quieter operation, and better fuel economy for long-term enjoyment. Further, her hull bottom was replaced in 2005 with the latest vinylester compounds and an epoxy barrier coat.

The Marine Trader 34 has a classic two-cabin layout. The main salon is bright and airy with a full sized door access to starboard at the main helm. Entering the cabin via the teak sliding door, the helm station is forward to starboard. Electronics are mounted just above the hydraulic steering station as well as along a bulkhead overhead that spans the width of the salon.
To port is a full function galley with a four burner gas range with oven, a stainless steel sink with hot/cold pressure water and a large under-cabinet 12V refrigerator. High quality teak joinery abounds, accented by custom teak door carvings. Just aft of the helm and galley is a large salon area that spans the width of the yacht. A bench style settee is to port and an L-shaped settee is to starboard. A removable adjustable height table can be lowered to cocktail height or be raised to dining height. Flooring is teak parkay. The floor has three access panels that can be removed for engine access.
Marine Traders are famous for using every available nook and cranny for storage and the 34 Classic is no exception. There is a huge amount of natural light coming through the large windows on all sides. Forward, down a few steps, is the guest cabin with en-suite head. The V-berth is large and can easily accommodate two full sized adults. Again, there is an abundance of furniture grade teak everywhere you look. Storage is below the bunks. There are two chromed bronze opening ports as well as a huge overhead opening hatch for excellent ventilation while at anchor. The en-suite head has a stainless steel sink with hot/cold pressurized water, a shower hose, an opening port, and a manual marine head. There’s a little less teak in the head for easy maintenance.
Aft of the main salon, again down a few steps, is the spacious owner's cabin. There are two large bunks both port and starboard. The port berth is for one person. The starboard berth sleeps two people. Everywhere you look, there are drawers, cabinets, nooks and crannies for storage. There are big opening windows on both sides, excellent headroom and a private hatch aft for access to the stern.
The owners' cabin on the Marine Trader 34 is a treat. Large, bright, well ventilated and thoughtfully laid out, this space makes for a comforting retreat at the end of the day. Two oversized berths are mirrored to port and starboard. There is storage EVERYWHERE you look. The cabin is down a few steps from the main salon and has its own exit via a companionway hatch aft. There are bookshelves, drawers and cabinets where ever the designers could find room. There are large vertical sliding windows on both sides of the room.
- Twin oversized berths both port (single) and starboard (double)
- Aft companionway hatch and sliding side windows allow for excellent ventilation
- Abundant storage with drawers, shelves and cabinets
- En-suite head
Two heads, one forward en-suite in the guest cabin, the other aft en-suite in the owner's stateroom, are both large and comfortable. Both have chromed bronze opening ports, recently serviced/refurbished manual marine heads, stainless steel sinks, hot/cold running water, and space for showering. Wall surfaces are a combination of white (easy to clean) formica with teak accents. Doors to both heads are intricately custom carved with asian style floral designs (see pics).

HULL AND DECK:
Two owners ago, there was some osmotic blistering on the wetted surfaces of the hull. Her hull was COMPLETELY PEELED and rebuilt in 2005 with the latest in vinylester resins and bi-axial fiberglass matte. Her bottom is now better than new. To further protect the wetted surfaces, the hull received a full barrier coat right after being enhanced.

Accessed via three large opening sections of flooring from the main salon, the engine room is huge and easy to maneuver around. The first thing you'll notice down below is the upgraded Cummins 210 H.P. diesel engine. This is a 55% increase over the standard Ford Lehman 135 H.P. diesel found in nearly all Marine Trader 34 Classics. What does this do for you? The first of many benefits is increased fuel economy and a 20% increase in speed through the water. The engine runs quietly at a lower rpm but propels the boat at hull speed with ease. Further, with the engine running slower, wear and tear is greatly reduced. Even with the larger engine, it's easy to get around the engine room. I'm 6'-2" tall and I had no trouble climb gin around the space to take the pictures posted on this listing. All major systems as well as the stainless steel tanks to port and starboard are easy to access for inspection and service.

With classic lines and a beautiful shear, the Marine Trader 34 looks and lives like a noticeably larger yacht. Her side decks are comfortably wide. The bow area is spacious and comfortably available for lounging or anchoring & docking work. Walking surfaces are molded in non-skid. The bow sprit is large and protected by stainless steel rails. The anchor windlass is in a wide and open configuration for easy access.
Moving aft is the stern area with steps to a lounge area and more steps leading up to a huge fly bridge and entertaining deck. The upper helm spans the cabin top and there is bench seating both port and starboard.
At the stern a set of dinghy davits attaches to the stern rail. There is an exit to a full width teak swim platform below, just above the waterline. Deck and hull sides are white. Bottom paint is black. The accent stripe is red. There is a minimum of teak on the exterior of the boat. The radar mast has a 16 mile range Raytheon Radar dome, navigation lighting, and deck lighting.

I know that when I travel with clients FAR out of town for yachts, I don't like surprises when I get there. It's embarrassing for me and can make for an expensive trip. With that in mind, I'd like to share my rating of various systems on the boat so you'll be as informed as possible before you come for a visit. My rating system is on a 1-10 scale with 10 being 'excellent' (in MY opinion). Please view this list as a GUIDE only. Everyone's idea of good and bad can vary quite a bit. My goal in doing this is to help you reach a comfort level with the boat before you invest time and energy to come and see it. I'll summarize by saying that this appears to be an excellent yacht worthy of serious consideration. Last time I sold her, she listed less than two months and had a LOT of traffic.
- Overall Rating: 9.0/10
- Interior: 9.0/10
- Cabinetery and upholstery in excellent condition. Minor wear on parkay flooring minor. A repaired leak from the port aft cabin window has caused some water damage to the teak below.
- Exterior: 7.0/10
- The exterior spaces on this boat are great for entertaining. The canvas is in great shape and the small amount of woodwork has been varnished. There are some cosmetic crazing cracks along the cabin brow.
- Electronics: 8.5/10
- Gear a little dated but works fine. The boat does not have a functioning autopilot, but the wiring and equipment is in place.
- Engine Room: 9.0/10 (visual inspection only)
- Engine appears to be in very good shape. Hours are relatively low for a trawler. Minor paint chipping on hot engine parts (typical). All other engine room systems appear very clean. DC electrical system completely renovated and updated.
- Galley Systems: 9/10
- Galley is very clean and functional. All equipment in working order and in above average condition for age of yacht
