Sea Ray 340 Sport Fish - 1988 - £32,950
The over-riding and lasting impression of this boat is just how much space and volume she offers.
Being American-built one could expect her to be powered by 'gas' engines, but not in this case; she is fitted with twin Volvo Penta TAMD 41A diesels (200 BHP each) which are able to push this sports fisher to a reported 26 knots, with a comfortable and a relatively economical 16-18 knot cruising speed.

Being intended as a 'sports fisher' version of the Sea Ray 340 Sundancer, the emphasis in this boat's design is in offering uncluttered cockpit space, but in the true American idiom, this is coupled with space and very generous accommodation arrangements below. Many of the original lighting units have been replaced with LED lamps.
The master berth is located forward, and a generous double berth is well lit by overhead deck hatch and fixed hull ports to either side. There are lockers fitted, one to each side of the foot of the berth. The locker to starboard side is fitted with fiddled shelves, while the locker to port is a hanging locker. Deep storage drawers are fitted within and beneath the berth. Separation from the main cabin is by means of substantial part bulkheads to either side and good quality curtains.
A dinette table arrangement; generous for two (a little tight for four people) converts to provide another occasional double berth for guests to the port side of the main cabin, opposite the cooking galley. The original cushions, although of deep foam and comfortable design, are looking to be in need of a little cleaning now, and there is a small rent in the forward-most squab cushion, but nonetheless still very serviceable.
The food preparation galley is amidships and to starboard. Generous, but still secure for use at sea being generally U-shaped in configuration; this is a galley fit for the American market and is fitted with a full, front opening refrigerator, a gas three-burner hob and a microwave. There is a generous sink, with drainer and work-level, closed lockers; all conveniently within reach of a central point.
Meanwhile, and abaft the dinette, what could perhaps be described as the entertaining galley is located immediately ahead the companionway between the cockpit and main saloon. Fitted out with another L-shaped counter top and under-counter lockers, this is the ideal location to be handing out drinks and cocktails from, although in the current ownership this area has been utilised as an extension to the food preparation galley. It is a light and welcoming area that is fully integrated with both the main saloon and the cockpit.
A large heads compartment is located to starboard, immediately at the foot of the companionway steps, ahead of the cockpit's steering console. Clean and well lit, the space is generous enough to offer practicable showering with wash-down surfaces and finishes throughout. An electrically flushing and macerating toilet is fitted. No holding tank fitted.
Twin Volvo Penta TAMD 41A, 6 cylinder, turbo-charged marine diesels, rated at up to 200 HP each, driving three bladed propellers through conventional stainless shafts within hull tunnels. Stern seals are of the Volvo Penta (dripless) lip seal type.
