Opinions on the Peterson 34 (1981)
 
Hi Guys Good Morning,

I am considering buying a Peterson 34 of 1981 with the intention of living aboard and sailing the Coast of Brazil. I am hoping that some of the members might be able to pass on information, opinons or experiences.
Thanks :
Deva

Sailed on and against one briefly racing in sheltered waters. Boat was quite fast and easily handled in the light winds we raced in though that is not much of a challenge for the boat. The owner had sailed the boat to Mexico and cruised for one season with an ex girl friend. Accommodations were adequate for cruising with minimal gear. Not a boat you are going to load down with a ton of cruising detritus however. The owner did put two small vertical windlasses on the foredeck and had a double anchor set up that he used while cruising. He built an attractive looking hard dodger that gave a lot of protection in the cockpit so should have been comfortable at sea.
