About Ragnarok

This information is from the Aloha 34 Network website: http://www.aloha34.com
Designed by Ted Brewer and Robert Walstrom, the ALOHA 34 was built in Whitby, Ontario, Canada by OUYANG BOATWORKS until the late 1980’s.The ALOHA 34 is a comfortable, reasonably fast cruising sailing yacht, very beamy with a long waterline and very generous accommodations. The sail plan provides good drive and the deck is uncluttered. Standard draft is 5’6″, but some boats were built with a draft of 4’8″. The slotted toe rails are aluminum, grab rails and eyebrows are teak and the companionway above the bridge deck is slightly offset with teak drop boards. A spacious T-shaped cockpit contains a shallow locker to starboard and a deep locker to port providing access to the back of the diesel engine, the transmission and the fuel system. There are ten opening ports and three overhead hatches allowing liberal ventilation. A rope/anchor locker is located on the foredeck just aft of a bow roller which allows permanent ready-to-drop storage of the anchor. The interior is traditional with liberal use of teak. A bulkhead mounted fold down dinette table leaves the main cabin with ample seating for meals when down and open space when up.  At least 6’3″ headroom extends all the way forward into the V-berth. The head, with hot and cold pressure water, shower and a teak grating on the sole, has access doors from both the main cabin and the forward cabin. Opposite the head is a hanging locker and recesses for storage of clothing. The U-shaped galley to port, near the companionway, includes a stove with oven, deep stainless steel sink and commodious ice box. Opposite, on the starboard side, is a forward facing nav station with large working surface and the quarter berth. The companionway stairs can be removed for easy access to the front of the engine. 12 v and 110 v systems provide the necessary electrical power.
