The newly redesigned Nor-Tech 340 Sport Open (34′ LOA, 10′ beam) debuted in late 2015 with even more new features than her wildly successful 2012 predecessor, the 34 Sport. Starting at the bow, forward seating has been added and redesigned with improved storage access. The sun lounge has been shortened to accommodate new seating and has a fold-down armrest and grab rails built in, and steps are built in along the midship gunwales. The console dash panel is now designed to accommodate two 17-inch screens or multi-function displays, a 7-inch engine monitor and stereo on the dash panel.
A Garmin 7616 electronics package is commonly installed. Nor-Tech utilizes the C-Zone system that eliminates most of the standard toggle switches, and the functions can be controlled electronically on the Garmin displays. Under the console, a spacious cabin is equipped standard with a double berth, lighting, and sink, and options can be added such as head and shower and air conditioning. A new, stylish port light has been added along with a skylight over the head compartment, while the T-top frame has a new swept-back look with fewer pipe obstructions. Triple 350-hp Mercury Verado outboard engines power the 340 Sport Open to top speeds over 80 mph.
