Rinker - 340 Fiesta Vee
- Stock #037670 -
This vessel was SOLD on November 6.
Rinker Boat Company, one of the oldest names in the marine industry, introduced their "Fiesta Vee" line of sport cruisers over 20 years ago in 1986 with the Fiesta Vee 250. The Fiesta Vee 342 continued the company's tradition of offering affordable boats with spacious interiors and an impressive array of standard equipment.
In 1998, the 330 Fiesta Vee was the queen of Rinker's fleet and featured a standard equipment list that included a 4.5-KW auxiliary generator, 16,000-BTU reverse cycle heat and air conditioning, anchor windlass, and central vacuum, just to name a few.
The overall length of the model is just over 36 feet and includes the transom-mounted swim platform, while the on deck length is closer to 33 feet, likely accounting for the model's original name. The freeboard and cabin are necessarily quite high in order to allow well over six feet of standing headroom in the cabin although the designers have nicely disguised the height with a combination of feature lines and stripes for an attractive, contemporary look.
The hull of the 342 Fiesta Vee is constructed of a combination of chopped strand fibers, hand-laid woven roving fiberglass cloth and polyester resin. Structural member are fiberglass encapsulated wood. For interior components, Rinker uses a single piece fiberglass cabin liner which is set into the hull and secured using adhesive sealants. The decks are fiberglass composites with balsa core and the hull and deck are joined in a shoebox fashion with adhesive sealants and stainless steel screws.
The arrangement of the deck and cockpit provide a good combination of small and large boat features such as a walk-through windshield commonly found on smaller models and a cockpit wet bar usually found on larger boats. There is an anchor locker on the foredeck with electric anchor windless and three deck hatches in the cabin top. In the cockpit, there is a double helm seat to starboard and settee to port and a bench seat at the transom. The welded stainless steel rail around the forward and side decks is 1 1/8' diameter rather than the 1' typical found on boats in this class.
The 12-foot beam allows for a spacious and open interior with a few twists on more traditional arrangements. The forward berth is large enough for two adults to sleep in comfort and can be separated from the main cabin by a privacy curtain. The galley along the port side of the main saloon includes, as standard equipment, a two-burner electric countertop stove as well as a built-in microwave oven and coffee maker. To make room for storage below the galley counter, the refrigerator normally found there has been moved beneath the forward berth. There is a small dinette opposite the galley that seats three comfortably and four in a pinch. The head is aft to port and includes a separate stall shower not commonly found on boats in this size range. Aft there is a mid-cabin U-shaped settee tucked beneath the bridgedeck which is a bit claustrophobic for sitting about but does convert to a second double berth.
