Here’s a 33-foot cruising cat with large cruising cat comforts.
It’s not easy to provide good headroom and comfortable accommodations on a 33-foot cruising cat, but the Broadblue 345 does just that. It comes standard with three separate cabins and it also has a head with separate shower stall. The aft cabins have king size berths. The boat also has a single berth forward and a single berth amidships. All the joinery is American light Oak. Teak and holly synthetic flooring is used throughout.
As you can see, the saloon has excellent visibility out of the large fixed windows, good ventilation thanks to several opening hatches, and even a proper, forward-facing nav station. And just like much larger cats, it has a large settee that’ll sit four comfortably for dinner.
Since all lines lead to a central location by the helm, singlehanding should be a breeze. The aluminum rig, full batten main, and roller furling jib should provide plenty of horsepower under sail. The boat is even available with an optional rig that’s designed to be easy to lower and raise, so it’ll even go under low bridges if you need it to.
