Because the smaller IPS footprint takes up less space in the engine room, Rampage engineers are planning to add more lazarette storage compartments after hearing feedback from the dealers. You can never have too much storage, especially if the float plan involves trips to remote fishing grounds.
With the handling convenience of IPS, this 34-footer is ideal for an owner/operator. The forward dinette converts to bunk-style beds or twin bunks with a full berth below. The sofa doubles as a queen-size master. The galley has a two-burner cook top, microwave oven and refrigerator/freezer. A macerated marine toilet with handheld shower and vanity countertop adds to the comfort level. Cabin rod racks, a Clarion stereo system and cherry accents are all standard; an air conditioner/heater system and a choice of Kohler generators are optional add-ons. With 6 feet 6 inches of headroom illuminated by recessed lighting, the cabin is very bright and comfortable.
The starboard helm on the 34 offers excellent visibility and simple scanning of the 34-inch-by-13-inch electronics panel. The helm pod tilts out for wiring access. An Edson stainless-steel comfort wheel, hydraulic steering and trim tabs are standard. The helm deck has a hatch for quick checks on the engine room while underway, but the entire fiberglass deck rises on an electric ram for serious maintenance. An L-shaped lounge to port provides guest seating, and the side seat can also rotate to the forward position.
Rampage doesn't scrimp on construction either. The hull bottom is solid fiberglass with cored hull-sides. The fiberglass stringer system is foam-cored as well. The gelcoat finish is topped by a vinylester skin coat and comes with a five-year transferable warranty. Upper through-hull fittings are 316 stainless steel, while the underwater fittings are all bronze. The deck components are molded fiberglass with polyester resin and biaxial stitched reinforcement with cored construction.
If you're in the market for a serious express-style boat, the Rampage 34's responsive IPS power can handle any fishing scenario you might encounter in blue water. Hard-charging sailfish or marlin don't stand a chance.
