It's wonderful that Beneteau sent some technicians to Bermuda to resolve the rudder bearing issue. A tesimant that Beneteau is very responisble for their product.
J-Boats also had many rudder problems with a few boats either dropping out of the Newport Bermuda race or having difficulty on the return trip.
I've sailed at least a dozen Beneteau's over the years and they've always been good.
A friend from Puerto Rico bought a 2007 Beneteau 50' last year. Spectacular boat!
Es una lastima que usted tiene a descubrir el problema con el eje de timon en la passage a Bermuda. ?Esta haciendo el trabajo usted mismo, o tengan el astillero en St Georges para hacer el trabajo?
Parece que Beneteau USA es consciente del problema y estan ayudando ustedes.
Un question: ?Habla Ingles suficiente para el uso del Radio HF?

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well.
I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left me handicapped. I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
