The RL34 was designed with the Queensland Barrier Reef very much in mind. She is a boat that will sail well in the steep short seas that prevail in the area, be able to negotiate shallow entrances, and sail right up to the beach.
Her easy lines and clean run make her very easily driven in the worst chop, and she can sail or motor into coves or creeks, where a conventional keelboat cannot go.
The 3/4 rig is moderate, keeping in mind that winds all along the Australian coast are mostly fresh, and the Keeley KA10 mast with single spreader is very adequately supported by caps and lower shrouds and adjustable backstay.
Fitted with a storm cover and canopy over the roomy cockpit she will provide her crew with good protection when needed from rain, wind, and sun.
Headroom in the main saloon is nearly 2 meters, and combined with her excellent accommodation makes the RL34 a very comfortable boat. Her sailing ability and the overall concept have exceeded expectations and it is good to know when called upon, has proved herself capable of beating much larger boats offshore.
The positives of this boat are the low hour repowered motor, 7k electronics package recent installation, and current as of this add going live 19th September is getting antifouling and motor service, interior upholstery redone and the boom covers and cockpit covers redone.
This is probably the best RL34 out there.
