Our yacht “Panorama” is ready to sail
… with nice electronics, new sails and an electric heads. Beneteau Oceanis 343 is perfect for a couple cruising, or a family wanting to have a boat to take to the islands; her wide cockpit can sit up to 6 in comfort, she has an open transom with a nice swim platform. The helm station features nice displays including a colour plotter that is very easy to navigate. There are new teak coamings in the cockpit for 2014. Great accommodations below, especially for a boat this size; Down below in the main cabin, there is a nice, large galley counter top, deep fridge, plenty of storage and you can sleep an extra guest or two on convertible dining table.
She is currently the least expensive of our cruising yachts but by the numbers her performance under sail is second to none – the “fun meter”, and the sailing feel-good quotient is off the scale.
