A handsome, nimble and capable double-ender by legendary designer Bill Crealock, the Pacific Seacraft 34 is well proven, with scores of ocean crossings in its wakeAfter the boat was first launched as the Crealock 34 in 1979, Pacific Seacraft introduced a fifth model years later, a scaled-down version of the popular PS 37. Though expensive at the time, the 34 was another success story for one of America’s premier builders, and hundreds of boats were built in the company’s yard in Santa Ana, California. A nice perk for used-boat buyers is that the 34 is back in production at the reincarnated Pacific Seacraft yard in Washington, North Carolina, providing an outlet for parts and advice. The company is now owned and operated by marine archaeologist Stephen Brodie and his father, Reid.This boat offers fast performance under sail, seakindliness, ease of handling, comfort and timeless beauty. All the advantages of the Crealock-designed canoe stern with its ample overhang, well-proven in other Pacific Seacraft, are incorporated in the Pacific Seacraft 34. The Pacific Seacraft 34's moderate displacement contributes to both comfort and speed. She is light enough to make her swift, heavy enough to make her comfortable, and spacious enough to hold ample stores for a long passage. Belowdecks, she's light, airy and exceptionally commodious with 6- foot 3-inch headroom; a spacious, versatile salon; U-shaped gourmet galley; and bunk space for 5The 34 blends traditional values above the waterline with a rich wood interior. The rich bronze hardware combined with a beautiful teak interior make for a classy traditional yacht perfect for a cruising couple or single hander.
