Considered one of the most popular small cruisers ever built, the original Mainship 34 was in production from 1978 to 1982, and was followed by the 34 MKII (1980-’82) and 34 III (1983-’88). Today Mainship offers four trawler models from 34 to 43 feet and is part of the Luhrs Marine Group.
The current owners have enjoyed coastal cruising & fishing onboard this Mainship 34 MKII.
With its shallow bilge keel draft this boat would be ideal for a couple or small family for exploring the S. Texas Gulf Coast also an ideal boat to Cruise the Great Loop.
