Boat: Beneteau Oceanis 34

Re: Beneteau Family Tree

So, this seems to be an old thread and not much to add. my .02 anyway:
I have a bene oceanis 34 recent(ish) vintage(09). looks good, sails great, easy to singlehand, tons of room for the size, etc. I dont really plan to take it more than 50 miles off the coast at any time, but for coastal cruising, going to Catalina, maybe the Baja ha ha, it should perform well. Most important is that it's comfortable for my wife and family, as they dictate how much I get to really use it. and of course slip fees are more reasonable due to length.
the rusting iron keel is something we deal w on haulouts, and its def not constructed as burly as some of the older boats that cruisers prefer. But for 95%+ people on the water, these boats are great. I think that people cross oceans on these, and w technology and good weather forecasting I think that most weather issues are avoidable (hopefully). Im pretty excited to upgrade this thing and get some solar power and inverters and a watermaker so I can do some extended coastal cruising.
Really, for someone who lives on land, this boat is the perfect compromise and price point for family fun! Of course Id love an amel 50, but a boat like that would be my entire life, where this is just a fun addition.

So after more than 10 years, we are still very happy with our Tartan 3500!
