I think that with the introduction of the 342 came the foldable transom/bath platform as an option. If I am not wrong, if you order a 342 today you will either get an open transom or a transom with the bath platform, whereas when the 342 was introduced you would get a closed transom if you didn't opt for the platform.

I think that the bath platform is a wonderful thing giving you the feeling of getting close to the water that you would otherwise lack on a boat of this size.

I wonder how many of you have gone for this option and if you are happy with it?

I am very happy with our foldable swimplatform. It is very easy to jump into the water and come up again. It is also easy to get into our dinghy and get the motor on it.
I also think that it is easy'r to get a "MOB" inside the boat again.

We have specified it on our new boat (342 #507) for the very reasons you outline - easier to get in and out of a dinghy, easier MOB recovery (flat water only) and also easier to get on and off the boat when she is moored stern to in a marina berth.

I'll let you know if it lives up to expectations.....

We have a problem with our bathing platform and it is that it broke not long after we got the boat. The construction was too weak and Hanse apparantly decided to make a stronger, aluminium reinfored construction. From what I have heard the new boats are fitted with this new platform. We have been waiting for more than a year for a replacement but it seems Hanse has got a problem with the delivery.

In the shape it is now, and has been the entire last summer, it is hazardous to anyone stepping on it because it can break into two halves.

Du skojar väl Johan,
 
Bathing in the Baltic? When it's not too cold you have the dreaded algae these days.
 
As for easing boarding when berthing stern-too, isn't the platform a little vulnerable if lowered when parking stern to?
 
Cheers

Haha, the Baltic is a great place to swim although the algea sadly prevents you from doing it sometimes. And what is cold to a real viking? My sweet lady and her friends took a morning dip, the last for the season, 8th of October. She beat me this year.

We never really park stern-to here. We are used to the many islands of the Archipelago where it's not possible and we get so used to park with the bow to land so we don't park stern-to to a pontoon either.

And it's a great place to sit and have a whiskey while the autopilot is steering.

The picture is from Öresund, just outside Dragör, taken by a friend.

I don't remeber who I put in charge of watching ahead, but I don't see anyone so it must have been the autopilot...

Besides, the salt content in the Baltic is very similar to your body fluids which makes it nice to swim in.

If you are in a lake with no salt content, or on the west coast of Sweden with its higher content, you will feel it if you get water up your nose.

Happy swimming everyone,

Johan

On your pic you can see how easy it is to use this platform. I would like those platform was standard when you order the boat not like option. It was standard when I order my boat 342#328. I order my boat Sep-04 but was in Greifswald Jun-05 and sailed home to Norway with include the platform Smile.

I refused to order the platform on principal alone. It's over $1000, ridiculous.....
