2007 Beneteau 343

5 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:


Designed by Berret/Racoupeau, the Beneteau 343 is targeted to appeal to the discerning owner who wishes to find a finely finished yacht at an attractive investment level. Featuring more volume, a bigger interior and better performance than its predecessor the Beneteau 331. The 343 provides standard features that few sailboats of her size offer, including a separate stall shower.

This boat is nicely finished in Beneteau’s trademark quality joinery and Cherry veneer. Coming down the companionway stairs there is an L shaped galley to port. The galley has a large front loading fridge, stainless steel sink with cutting board, cutlery tray with additional pot and pan stowage below, propane stove and oven, microwave oven and vented storage cupboards outboard. Behind the galley is access to the aft cabin which has a large queen sized bed with spring mattress and custom cover, hanging locker, shelves and reading lights. There is also an access hatch to the cockpit locker which doubles as an emergency exit. Opposite the galley is the entrance door to the head compartment with separate shower. A marine head is behind the door and a sink with vanity cupboard in the center. The shower stall has a curtain and teak grate seat. Forward of the head compartment is an aft facing chart table with storage to the side and below. Electronics panels for DC and AC are at the chart table. The main salon features a U shaped settee to port with a fixed table. The table has a leaf to starboard for those seated on the starboard bench settee. The main salon has reading lights, stereo speakers, skylights and opening hatches with roller blinds and integrated bug screens. There is plentiful storage in opening cupboards outboard, shelves and below the settee. The forward cabin features a V-berth with insert, spring mattress with custom cover, two lockers and shelves. Reading lights and a sliding door complete the layout.
