What's so great about an Aloha 34?
Likes Ability to sail well in all conditions, particularly in light air Sea-worthiness in heavy weather Large practical cockpit Roominess and comfortable layout, especially below decks Large amount of storage space The Owners? Network Hull sturdiness Reliable diesel engine Self-tailing winches Excellent non-skid decks Few problems Large headroom, excellent for tall people Nice lines, attractive silhouette Lots of ventilation and light Dislikes Lack of a good way to change the engine oil. (This problem is not common to all Alohas) Teak on deck, looks nice but requires too much maintenance [one opinion] Battery location abaft the fuel tank too inaccessible on some boats Headroom in head. One owner has resolved this by recessing the teak floor grating into the well Wires exiting 12" from bottom of mast make it difficult to get through the hole in the deck when stepping the mast
