Re: Aloha 34

I don't think that it matters very much if it is keel or deck-stepped - the mast is much too big to make it convenient for dropping to go under bridges. If this is an absolute must you need to look at boats with purpose-built tabernacles. I think there are some Dutch boats like that.

Re: Aloha 34

Does the Aloha 34 have a deck stepped or keel stepped mast? I haven't seen a mast in interior photos, but perhaps it is hidden behind some wood work?

(Just a practical matter knowing there are low bridges in my future.)

bobperry I drew the deck lines for that boat when I was moonlighting for Ted.

rugosa Worked on a few of these in Port Credit in the 80's installing refrigeration, instruments, pilots, seasonal in/out. Can't comment on performance or design, but compared to Niagara 35's of similar vintage boat lacked finesse in build/assembly quality. QC at Hinterhoeller was at a higher level. On the other hand, the Niagara 35 has reputation for deck delaminiation/soft spots, again, a QC problem. None of them are perfect, but most of them are fun!

Faster She's a Ted Brewer design, roomy and comfortable and well behaved as his work usually is.

Aloha 34 - Used Sailboat Market in Canada

ALOHA 34 sailboat on sailboatdata.com

More fin keel than Brewer's usual longish keel/Brewer bite style of hull but that likely explains it's non-slug status.

Not aware of any serious quality issues with Aloha, expect they would be on par with other local builders of that era.

Just put a deposit on this Aloha 34 in Annapolis:



I jumped when the price was dropped to what I was going to offer and they were a feature boat at the Annapolis Boat Show. I was within 60 days of departing for the search and was going to bring whatever boat I found to Hampton, Va anyway. This saved me a search, a complete refit, and a trip around Florida. (I say that about the trip because I know I would have bought something in Texas.)

Gary M A similar boat, in fact they look the same, is the Hinterheoller 35. I think you will find it is much more suitable for a trip across the pond, I believe the design and build quality is much better.
I do not know this for sure but have heard from different sources that the quality of construction on the Alohas varied a fair bit.

Good Luck
Gary
