Description: Sparkman & Stephens 34
S&S 34 Fibreglass sailing vessel. The boat has only ever been used for coastal cruising and never raced. She features an under cockpit motor, giving greater internal usable space.

Apart from the wonderful racing record, the Sparkman & Stephens 34 has also a great cruising history. Two well known S&S 34's "Bluebell" and "Perie Banou" were sailed to England prior to the 1979 Parmelia Yacht Race via the Suez and Mediterranean. "Bluebell" crossed France by the inland waterways, "Perie Banou" went via Gibraltar.

Many are sailed solely by husband and wife crews. "Perie Banou" completed a non-stop, single handed double circumnavigation of the world. This yacht previously sailed around the world in 1976. David Dicks on "Seaflight" is the youngest to sail around alone and Jesse Martin the youngest unassisted. More recently Jessica Watson completed her circumnavigation in her S&S 34 Ella's Pink Lady" & Jamie Dunross sailed solo around Australia, being the first disabled sailor to do so.

The S&S 34 has the ability to sail very close to the wind in heavy weather.

The sea kindliness of the S&S 34 is due to its well designed hull that also enables it to maintain a good speed under reduced sail, and to be driven to hull speed under a moderately powered engine. Its 2,500 kilogram lead keel makes it very stiff. It is very roomy below with headroom of 6'2".
