PRICE REDUCED FURTHER!

Fast, tough and well built, this 1979 Peterson 34 is an affordable performance cruiser capable of long cruises or as a possible contender in an offshore race. "Blue Sky Flyer" is a fresh water, two owner boat. She hasn't been raced in a while and has recently been used for day-sailing on Little Traverse Bay.

American yacht designer Doug Peterson gained the attention of the world’s most competitive sailors when he unveiled the one tonner Ganbare in 1973. The 35-foot sloop was innovative below the waterline, and it was praised for its looks and sailing capability. It went on to win the SORC. By 1976, Peterson had designed the Peterson 34, an offshore racer-cruiser.

The Peterson 34 went into production at Texas-based Island Yachts/Composite Technologies, and 92 were built until production ceased in 1981. Composite Technologies, established by boat builder Andy Green in Corpus Christi, Texas, was acquired sometime around 1976 by boat builder and rigger Marion Hayes. Hayes renamed the company Island Yacht Corp. and relocated production to League City, Texas. 

It was during this era that Peterson’s designs dominated offshore racing, with winning IOR boats Gumboots, Eclipse, and Ragamuffin. He also designed several stock racers such as the Contessa 35 and the New York 40.

The majority of Peterson’s performance cruisers were considered rugged enough for ocean racing. Peterson once said the 34 “was built to deliver about eight people quickly and safely from point A to point B.” 

The Peterson 34 is as fast as it looks, and this quality solidified Peterson’s reputation as a designer. The sloop’s profile from abeam is sleek, the sharp cut bow and reverse transom give the boat a sense of forward motion. 

The dimensions are well proportioned—the 11-foot 2-inch beam is just about one-third of the boat’s 33-foot 11-inch overall length. The smooth, rounded deck contour is clearly designed to shed seawater. The compact cockpit has been updated from a tiller to a wheel making her more friendly to drive and leaving more room for sitting.The traveler is mounted across the bridge deck. Trimmers can easily reach the primary and secondary winches that have been upgraded to self-tailing.
