    Caribiana 34 (2006-) Line Drawing


    Captain's Report

    “A Whole New World of Leisure” By Capt. Bob SmithTest Captain The Caribiana 34 was one of the the more interesting boats I tested following the Miami Boat Show. Their catch phrase is “A whole new world of leisure” and I believe they have a great point. Coming into the marina, I could see how they borrowed from the surf runners out of Trinidad and Tobago to build a boat that easily cuts through the near shore and offshore wave action. This is the second offering from this company with a smaller sister, the Caribiana 23. HistoryThe builders of the Caribiana use a very sharp Vee to slice away the waves with her high forward sheer sides. She uses lapstrake hull designs for another throw back to the days of old with a touch of beauty. Don’t let all this fool you, she is a modern craft and is designed and built in Trinidad and Tobago with final assembly in Alabama.SpecificationsThe Caribiana 34 measures 34’0” in length and has a beam of 9.5’. She only draws 18”, so you can nearly put the bow on shore and still be able to pull away or slip into some pretty skinny water to pull some fish in for dinner. The entire hull weighs 4,500 lbs. She can carry up to 200 gallons of fuel and you can use from 300-450-hp outboards for power; we had twin Honda 150-hp four-stroke outboards on our stern. Room to fishThe openness of the interior makes working fish easy and safe from the bow to the stern. Wide walkways invite you to fight the fish without stumbling around the T-top. The huge bow area can seat a crowd up to 10 people and can convert to elegant seating for six at dinner. Ready for a nap? A canvas bowed cover sets up quickly to turn this area into a queen-size bed for your royalty on board. Helm features The center mounted helm station is sturdy, functional and high tech. Our test boat had digital information systems for the twin Honda outboards keeping you in touch. The windshield wraps around the T-top to keep you dry and out of cold breezes yet doesn’t block visibility. A large top on the helm provides plenty of room for charts or to add pedestal mounted electronics of your choice. Under the helm is a large space with head and shower as well as room for more storage. The T-top extends well forward and back so everyone gets cover from the sun. The heavy tubular supports give you a great hand hold underway. In addition to the bow seating there is another seat combination in the front of the T-top, the leaning post at the helm and three seats across the stern, so you shouldn’t have any problem getting everyone on board a seat. PerformanceWhen we tested the Caribiana 34, we found she had a nice smooth ride taking on the wakes of other boats with ease and turning smoothly in the Intracoastal Waterways in Miami. We found she cruised best around 3000 rpms and 15.2mph. At cruise she burns 5.2 gph for a range of 530 miles on a full tank of fuel. The Honda 150s topped out at 6,000 rpm and 42.5 mph with a fuel burn of 27.8 gph and a range of 275 miles. Sound levels were typical for a center console craft with a low of 61 dBa at idle, 81 dBa at cruise and 90 dBa at wide open throttle. She is up on plane in only 5.3 seconds and passes through 30 miles per hour in only 7.5 seconds.If surf running, charging through the near shore waves, cruising and fishing are important to your boating life, the new Caribiana 34 offers all this and more. She is built for the action in the water and on the water.
