How much does my boat weigh?

Anyone have a ball park figure on what a 1977 Marine Trader 34DC weigh?

Just looking for an estimate for planning end of season haul out. I have no idea.

What does your boat tip the scales at?

Thanks

They should tell you when they lift it
Smallest travel lift I have seen is 40 tonne and will have no problems lifting yours.

I think the travel lift here is an antique, definitely the smallest Iíve ever seen. I asked if they would be able to haul me and the said yes. He asked me how much it weighs, but I donít have any idea. He said probably 21-22000. Just wondering if that was close enough.

10T, or 20,000lbs would be my guess, but it's only a guess.

My '75 CHB34 sedan was 11.5 tonne last time lifted.

Converted for you non-std folk = 25,353.1 lbs

20 - 22k lbs seems like a reasonable estimate to me. It's almost certainly under 25k. Does the MT34 carry any ballast or no? If not, I'd be surprised if it's much heavier than that.

It has a concrete filled keel.
