A Compromis C34 from Holland, in her original ownership from 2000. This yacht has an interesting inventory that includes in-boom furling and an electric genoa furling gear as well as a bowthruster. With various health issues they have now purchased a motor yacht. This is a quality yacht with many practical details in the design and fitout, set up for ultra-easy handling by a small crew.

Yachtshipyard Zaadnoordijk built a series of yachts under the Compromis and C-Yachts names. The company was founded in 1947 by Rinus Zaadnoordijk, and began with a small marina in Uitgeest. Their yachts are well known for quality construction and fitout. In 2022 another Dutch company Wajer Yachts took over Yachtshipyard Zaadnoordijk and is continuing to build C-Yacht sailing yachts as well as their own range of motor yachts.

The Compromis C34 is designed by Frans Maas as a modern centre-cockpit cruising yacht with moderate draught (though a deeper keel was an option). The hull is quite high freeboard, with a massive rubber rubbing strake protecting the topsides. The owner specified this yacht with Treadmaster on decks, a powered Selden genoa furler and in-boom reefing for the mainsail. The boat also has a bowthruster and an electric anchor windlass. Like some Scandinavian yachts the anchor self-stows into a slot in the bow, and the cockpit has a fixed windscreen.

Internally she has one large aft cabin, with lots of stowage space. The joinery is teak, and the galley is particularly large for a 34 foot yacht, with workspace and shelf space not only by the cooker but also under the companionway steps. The companionway and galley area have stainless tube handholds.

'Yachting Monthly' tested the design when first introduced and summarised her as "Well built and well thought out, this boat deserves serious consideration from anyone looking for a quality 34-footer that stands out from the crowd. She will make a fine all-round cruiser with the capability of extended passagemaking."

After a long period of being unused the yacht has just been ashore, to have the Coppercoat to be

cleaned and renewed where necessary, also the feathering prop, anodes etc. serviced. The owners had also

arranged for the deck and cockpit teak to be cleaned, but this had not yet been done when photographed.

Bow detail

Deck aft


Apart from the electric genoa furler, this yacht has non-standard in-boom reefing.

In-boom reefing is more often found on superyachts, and has the significant advantage over the more common in-mast reefing in that if there is a problem with the reefing gear, the sail can still be dropped.

Cockpit aft

Under the weathering, the teak is actually in very good condition. The cockpit canopy is stained and
is not shown on the listed inventory: it will be a gift to the buyer and can be used as a winter lay-up cover.

We will rephotograph the deck and cockpit once they have been cleaned.
