You will not find a cleaner, more well equipped and taken care of Fast Trawler for the cruising couple than HIBISCUS III. It’s the perfect size with lots of room in the cabin areas and on the flybridge. A lot of thought by Mainship went into the design of the 34 Trawler. It is far superior to her previous siblings yet carries a lot of the good DNA that was successful in that model. This boat has been owned and maintained by an experienced couple that has owned many boats in their past and had prepared this boat for a long cruising voyage, but then bought a waterfront home in Stuart, FL that changed their plans. She is truly TURN-KEY and I don’t use that term lightly. Over $20k invested in the past two years to ensure her reliability and comfort.

Easy to see in Stuart, FL just 45 minutes north of West Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). Call for your showing. Don’t miss out; this boat will sell fast!

Designed and built for comfortable coastal cruising and occasional offshore ventures, this Mainship 34 “Fast Trawler” with its very rare twin 315HP Yanmar diesels (with low hours), combines a salty profile with sturdy construction and a luxurious single stateroom interior. The spacious Flybridge 34 is the ideal boat for the cruising couple…. easily handled in tight quarters , easy to maintain and reasonable on the wallet.  Built on an efficient semi-displacement hull with a partial keel, this shallow draft version with moulded in prop wells is also perfect for Bahamian cruising. The Galley down layout results in a notably spacious salon and a serving counter, with optional stools overlooking the Galley, adds a nice touch. The u-shaped Galley has all the amenities required for preparing gourmet meals, including generous storage and hard surface Corian counter tops. The forward well-ventilated stateroom has a center line double berth, cedar lined and lighted closets, and the head compartment includes a spacious glassed in separate stall shower. This Mainship 34 Fast Trawler also has the back up lower helm station option including Glendenning electronic engine controls, engine read outs, Garmin chart plotter/radar, Simrad autopilot, trim tab and Icom VHF radio repeater (new).  The large flybridge overhangs the side decks and the aft cockpit, providing an amazingly large and comfortable navigation and lounging area, rarely seen on a vessel under 40 feet.  This model also has the upper  summer  galley option on the aft flybridge with propane BBQ, stainless slide out Isotherm fridge, beer cooler and sink.  The Twin 315 HP Turbo 6LPA Yanmars economically cruise at 8 to 9 knots but will get you to safe harbour or a bridge opening when required at 15 to 17 knots at full load. Not to mention the safety powerful twin engines offer should an engine failure occur,  far away from shore.

The Salon is very large, open and airy.  It has wooden blinds, a large comfy sofa with large storage under, two lovely chairs and a high-low solid cheery table.  There is a portside breakfast bar area with optional two stools overlooking the Galley.  There is 6’4” of head room and a teak centerline handhold.  The electrical panel is easily accessed behind cherry cabinet doors.  The fully equipped lower helm is to forward starboard with a glassed side door out to the starboard side deck.

The Flybridge on HIBISCUS III is huge and is another prime entertainment area, in addition to its helm cruising function.  It has a very large L-shaped settee seating on the port side with opposing double sofa style seating on the starboard side.  ALL with lift-up seating with tons of storage beneath.  It’s all enclosed with super clear new IsInglass and Stamoid bimini top with HD SS framework.  Aft of that enclosure is the “Summer Kitchen” with its overhead Stamoid bimini extended top and HD SS safety railings.  The Summer Kitchen is equipped with Magma Stainless propane BBQ, igloo cooler, sink and refrigerator/freezer.  The perfect outdoor Chef’s paradise.
The aft cockpit has plenty of space for a couple of chairs and table, and large enough to go fishing.  There are two large drainable storage bins built into the transom with lift up lids.  There is a nice large fiberglass swim platform aft of that with an access door on the starboard side.  A  shower assembly connection makes it complete.  There are molded FBG stairs up to the flybridge with great hand holds.  These stairs lift rearward for engine room access (no having to move furniture around in the Salon to lift-up hatches).  There is great access forward to the bow via well protected safe high bulwarks on the side decks.
