The Malo 34 is a medium to heavy displacement blue water cruising yacht of top-end quality. With a long encapsulated keel and skeg hung rudder they are renowned for their heavy weather sailing qualities, this yacht will appeal to those seeking a proper ocean-going yacht that is equally suitable for coastal cruising with a snug and quality laden interior.
An extremely full inventory and in wonderful condition. A great opportunity to purchase one of the classics from the quality Swedish builders.
'Siskin' was purchased by her first owner in July 1991 from the UK Malo agent. She was moored on the South Coast until June 2000 when she was taken in part exchange for a new, larger, Malo. She was purchased from the Malo agent and taken to Millbay marina in Plymouth for the summer months, and kept ashore under her full winter cover during the winter. She clearly enjoyed meticulous care from this owner, and that set the standard for us from 2006 onwards, while we have kept her in Chichester Harbour.
We, husband and wife both over 70, have cruised her along the South Coast and particularly in the Chichester and Solent areas.
She's taken us to the North Coast of France, and we've much enjoyed cruising the Channel Islands and nearby coasts and harbours.
A group of Malo's get together most years for a friendly meal, with all happy owners knowing they've chosen the best boat possible.
'Siskin 'is a real delight to sail. She is very light on the helm, very manoeuvrable under sail or engine and satisfying in strong winds. The deep and very sheltered cockpit always feels reassuringly safe and comfortable.
As you can see, she runs downwind with the rig 'goosewinged' and is unusually stable.
In lighter air (but up to about force 4 if you like) the cruising chute is splendid.
She motors astern under good control, and sailing in the often crowded Chichester Harbour holds no fears for novice friends sailing with us on a day trip. The skipper stays relaxed too!
We have been delighted with Siskin, and very proud to own her.
