Sojourner

Sojourner is an outstanding example of the popular Mainship 34 Trawler. It offers a centerline queen berth master with stall shower and a salon large enough to entertain in. The galley includes a two-burner cooktop, microwave oven, dual-voltage refrigerator and freezer.

The upper deck provides a magnificent entertaining and lounging area reached via comfortable stairs (no ladders!)

While Mainship marketed the boat as a “34 Trawler” to harken back to successful original Mainship 34, this new model is 39′ LOA with a beam of over 14′. It is the largest 34-footer you’ll find.

She has all the standard features you’d expect including a bow thruster, generator, AC and heat, and a windlass for the anchor. She was factory painted with Flag Blue Awlcraft 2000.

Sojourner has been treated to many updates that make it stand above the pack including:

  • Highfield 260CL dinghy (new 2018) with 8HP Yamaha outboard
  • Latest generation Raymarine electronics (new 2017)
  • Articulating rudder for enhanced maneuverability around the dock
  • Kohler 9KW generator (new 2013)
  • Custom hardtop by Atlantic Tower with canvas and glass (new 2017)

For the past 8 years Sojourner has lived on the northern Chesapeake Bay in (mostly) fresh water and shows no salt wear-and-tear. She is berthed on the Sassafras River at Georgetown, MD.

Mainship did a poor job with the exhaust routing for their generator install.  I know of 5 34Ts that have had water back up through the exhaust. Likely as a result I had a valve self-destruct.  It was the same cost to rebuild the existing generator or install a newer model.  I opted for newer model with improved controls and serviceability. I also had the exhaust routing improved.
