The Malo 34 is a yacht which defies expectations. The clever design and high quality build, delivering a yacht of just 34’ which offers all the comfort and refinement you would expect from a far larger yacht. The Swedish yard built the Malo 34’s with the same materials, the same quality of finish and the same attention to detail as their larger yachts. The end result is a 34’ yacht which punches well above her weight and offers refined and comfortable cruising in a package which is ideally suited to single or short-handed cruising.
