TORTUGA III | Mainship 34 MkI Trawler 34ft


Montral, QC, CA



The Mainship 34 Trawler is one of the most popular small cruisers ever built. She was constructed on a solid fiberglass, semi-displacement hull with a deep forefoot, slightly rounded bilges, and a full-length keel. The great appeal of the 34, aside from an affordable price, is her superb fuel economy. With the single Perkins 165 hp turbo diesel engine, the Mainship will cruise quite comfortably at 10 -11 knots burning only 6 gph. At a more relaxed speed of 7 knots the fuel consumption rate drops to a remarkable 2 gph.

The practical single stateroom floorplan is well suited for the cruising couple. In the interior, the forward cabin has a large v-berth and filler cushion, two hanging lockers and shelves outboard. More storage is built in below the berth with shelves and large compartments. The galley is to port and includes all the necessary food-prep necessities with plenty of storage. There is a propane three-burner stove with oven, S/S sink with pressure H/C water, and Norcold fridge/freezer. The enclosed head compartment is to starboard and features a separate stall shower, sink and vanity.

The main salon is up three steps. Here you'll find an open and airy layout with a custom pedestal table to starboard and comfortable chairs for relaxing. A lower helm is standard in the roomy salon. On the port side is a sofa that folds into a double bed.

On the flybridge, there is plenty of seating with a helm seat, side bench and room for folding chairs. A bridge extension shades the cockpit. There is a full enclosure for the flybridge helm.Any couple that is looking for a fuel-efficient, go-anywhere, turnkey cruiser will find this vessel hard to resist.



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
