This is the most affordable 343 out there and includes a dinghy.  Yes, it needs some elbow grease and attention but what a deal you'll have on this very lightly used ONE OWNER boat!  Engine runs very well on recently delivery from Carolina Beach to Oriental, NC - 12/hr days.  Not a hitch.

Much sought after shoal draft, retractable keel model.  Inflatable included.  Built in Marion, SC.

"SeaCup" is a nicely equipped,cruiser with low hours (280 reported as hour meter not working) on the Yanmar3 YM30.    Mostly day sailed. SeaCup has shallow draft you can get into safe, private anchorages that most boats would not dare enter. She's a cozy cruiser and she's waiting for her next sailors to love her

Reviews of the Beneteau Retractable Keel 343

  • DISCLOSURE:  On recent delivery 2/23 owner said the keel is stuck at 5''.  A haul and cleaning will likely free it up again as was done last year.
  • "This is a lot of boat for 34 feet, but it appears to be a very well-thought-out package." - Sail Magazine
  • "By all appearances, the designers of the 343 placed their emphasis on improvements in boathandling and accommodations, rather than making dramatic changes in hull, sailplan, or appendages. Compared with the performance-oriented Beneteau Fast line, this boat is designed for casual daysailing, coastal cruising, or overnighting in comfort...Beyond that, the company added a clever device, a (patented) pivoting helm seat that eases access to and from the swim platform. With the wheel rotated to port, the transom cutout is purposely off-center to starboard, effectively creating a straight shot to the companionway." - Practical Sailor
  • "The Beneteau 343 is the latest model from one of the industry’s most prolific builder. Conceived as a lively cruiser, the 343 includes design and construction features that we’ve come to take for granted from Beneteau. The 343 is comfortable on deck and below, it is easy to handle and maintain, and it performs well through a wide range of conditions. When you throw in a base price that hovers just over $100,000 you can add excellent value to the mix of features.
  • Beneteau Oceanis 343 Yacht / Sailboat

    Launched in 2005, the Beneteau Oceanis 343 blends impressive performance with exceptional comfort and spacious accommodation.
