The Rinker 342 is a mid-sized family friendly cruiser whose chief attractions are the spacious interior and a very affordable price.  Built on a beamy semi-V hull, the 342 offers exceptional interior spaces and roomy exterior spaces including the extended swim platform that affords a comfortable cruising vessel.



Entering into the cockpit is easy especially with the extended swim platform with a fold-away stainless steel swim ladder and recessed Weaver Brackets.   The transom door is along the starboard edge of the transom.  Enter the cockpit and to port is the aft lounge seat which faces forward and has a table with built in beverage holders.  Forward of that lounge is a storage area with built in beverage holders.  To starboard is a wet bar with Corian countertops, a fold-up blender for those cold Pina Coladas and a nice sink and cold water faucet.  Under the counter refrigerator/freezer and an ice maker finish out the bar.  Forward and to starboard is a “L” shaped seating area for helm guests.  The helm is to port and features an adjustable seat for two, excellent panoramic viewing, and a walk through windshield.  The entire cockpit sole lifts up by way of an electric lift revealing the entire engine room.  The area is covered with a complete dark blue Sunbrella camper canvas and also offers a matching mooring cover.

Down a nicely appointed stainless steel and carpeted tread steps you enter the main cabin.  The cabin is quite spacious and the beautiful wood trim and matching upholstery make you feel like you are onboard a mega yacht.  Immediately to port is a mirrored door which is the doorway into the head.  The head features a separate shower stall with a black acrylic door and bulkhead, electric FRESH WATER toilet, and a large mirrored vanity with ample storage. Use of matcing Corian trim makes the area feel more elegant. Behind the steps is access into the aft cabin area which can be separated from the main cabin by a sliding privacy curtain. The cabin can be converted into a lounge area or into a double berth.  There is excellent storage with a large aft storage area and a storage area under the center pad.  Just forward and to starboard is a hanging locker with a central vacuum and a storage drawer under.  The “C” shaped convertible dinette is along the starboard side and is quite large.  The table is high/low and the convertible section is held in place with swivel out stainless steel supports.  Under each seat is storage and there are forward and aft shelving under each seat.  Along the port side is the “L” shaped galley which features Corian countertops, stainless steel sink, ample cabinet and drawer storage and nice laid out shelving protected with matching Corian fiddles.  Just forward of the dinette and to starboard is an entertainment center with a slide out and swivel TV mount.  Under that is a hanging locker.  The master berth is forward and is separated from the main cabin with a sliding privacy curtain.  The master has port and starboard outboard shelving, in counter type storage bins and an overhead hatch.  


Located down and along the port side, the galley offers excellent storage capacity with Corian countertops.  The galley will please even the most discriminating chef.
