Additional Information of the Storebro 34

To start with some information about the actual boat it is built in 1969 or 1970, this according the production number, 1434, which can be found on the floor boards and seat support gratings.
From this type of boat are a total of 1230 built between 1965 and 1988 original in wood mahogany on oak frames.
In 1969 the hull was changed from wood into GRP but there were still mahogany hulls available until 1978.

The overall length of the boat is 10.35 meter
The beam is 3.2 meter
The draft is 0.9 meter
Displacement between 5 and 7 ton.

The dash board is still original of this boat and has 4 handles for the propulsion, two for regulating the speed and two for the clutch.
For the rest all gauges look original.

Going over the different web sides available as well as the original brochure of the boat it shows that most of the boat is still original as built.
The bathroom, which not only holds the toilet but can also be used as a shower furthers a sink, is installed.

The aft cabin holds two beds one on port side and one on starboard side with a storage cabinet in the aft between them.This cabin is lower than the rest of the boat and one can not stand straight up comfortable.

The main cabin is of the height that one can stand comfortable and holds the kitchen and seating area which can be concerted in a sleeping bed as well.

Kitchen is equipped with a small sink and a Taylor Paraffin cooker which I will leave in place since at the moment I do not see a place where I can create safely a gas bin.
