FRESH WATER TANK
The Beneteau 343 is one of the most popular models that Beneteau built. The model number (343) is misleading as it is not actually 34 foot long, it’s 35’6 with 6’8 headroom in the salon! It has good interior volume with a 2 cabin, 1 head layout, spacious galley and a large cockpit with walkthrough transom that allows for easy access to and from the water and wide side decks. It sails well, handling both light and heavy weather conditions with ease.
This boat has spent its entire life on the Chesapeake Bay. It has approximately 550 hours on the Yanmar 30HP Engine (the hour meter has faded out). This boat is very clean and lightly used. The current owners bought in 2017, and have used it to explored the southern Bay.
