Mariner 3400

Tranquility is a 1986 Mariner 3400 Flybridge Cruiser and is for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Widely respected for being a sound performer at sea with a beam of 3.79m, stability, predictability, ease of handling, and very responsive to helm and throttle.

Her twin shaft drive 165hp TAMD40B Volvo turbo diesel engines have around 2500 hours on them, are well maintained and give the Mariner 3400 comfortable cruising at 20 knots or more.

The internal space is excellent. The layout is slightly unusual for a 3400 in that she has a convertible settee in the upper saloon that converts to 2 wide single bunks, then a roomy dinette to Starboard under the lower helm station rather than the usual second cabin (forming a kind of lower saloon), and this arrangement makes her feel so much more roomy and airy, and should the need arise she can comfortably sleep 6 even before anyone takes to the saloon floor. The head compartment has a separate shower.

The good size galley is midships, and has a Panasonic microwave oven, and an Engel upright fridge/freezer. The saloon is a very bright and spacious area. and there's an entertainment unit aft on the Starboard side that includes TV, stereo and cocktail cabinet. There are in fact a total of 3 TV’s on board.

Tranquility boasts a fiberglass hard top, and full clears on the flybridge, good covers for the upper dashboard and both help seats, a cockpit shade, saloon curtains and a windscreen shade cloth. Full instrumentation includes compass, two VHF radios, depth sounder, chart plotter, clock and barometer.

There is an 1800 Watt inverter and the boat is wired for 240 volt shorepower.  As well there is an inflatable dinghy on a cradle on the foredeck.

This neatly looked after Mariner 3400 flybridge cruiser is well worth your inspection.The 1985 Sydney Boat Show saw the Mariner 34 replaced by a fresh new model called the 3400, and the two siblings should not be confused. The 3400 was superior in all respects – handling, performance, styling, layout, construction and finish. Indeed it might not have been part of the original script but the market reaction and subsequent sales of the 3400 prompted Mariner to revamp their entire range of cruisers in 1986.

The hull used for the plug and base design of the 3400 was the former Savage 34, which was widely respected for being a sound performer at sea. With the beam widened to 3.79m, stability and internal space increased correspondingly. During a test by Modern Boating’s David Toyer, the boat proved to be very comfortable and easily handled in one-metre swells off the Sydney coast. It gave confidence to the helmsman with its predictability, ease of handling and direct response to helm and throttle. “The boat had a firmness about its sea-riding capabilities and a positive feel to its handling and directional stability,” wrote Toyer.

With twin 165hp TAMD40B Volvos as standard power, the Mariner 3400 gave a top speed of 25 knots at 3600rpm and cruised at a good 20 knots to around 3200. The boat showed a quick response to the throttle and got on to the plane without minimum effort. The exhausts fitted neatly through the side of the hull, just forward of the transom under the stepped chine. Apart from muffling the exhaust noise it reduced the chance of fumes being sucked over the stern.
