I bought a Mainship 34 Pilot with two 240 hp Yanmars a couple of months ago. Boat was in Punta Gorda. Now in Cape Coral.

So far, I love her. Boat's best cruise is 16-17 kts and I get about 1.1 to 1.2 nautical miles per gallon at that point. Exactly what I was looking for.

djmarchands comments were very helpful when I was looking at these boats. His comment abouve about limited space outboard of the twin engines is appropriate, but my engine guy is small and told me access was not a problem for him before I bought the boat. Access to all fluid levels is on the centerline between the engines, so the basic pre cruise checks are no problem.
