Owners remarks

The first Malo 34 to be built, used as a demonstrator for 2 years at the European boat shows. A comfortable blue-water cruiser, beautifully presented, the Malo 34 offers a spacious safe cockpit which provides great cover from the elements with its sprayhood and tent.  Below deck is a comfortable area in which to relax in lovely surroundings at the end of the day.  The interior is fitted in mahogany to a very high standard and carpeted throughout. As a design, the Malo 34 is very seaworthy, offering impressive performance and well known build quality
