There are so many options out there. I was wondering what options or upgrades you added to your Beneteau that you are happy with and if there are any that you thought were a good idea at the time but could really live without.
I have an M500 and I took out the bulkhead between the forward cabins and made a large owners cabin, took apart the cabinetry and redid all the cabinets, turned some of the doors around so they would be easier to open, I built a fridge freezer unit in what was once a cabin entrance, took out the hokey dual cabinet in the center console and built drawers, and took out the fridge freezer unit, (what a bear as it was r-12), and installed a nice nav station.,
splitting the anchor lockers is a very good idea,
lets see, installed a radar arch with AIS (receiver only) and speakers and docking lights, rewired all af my under deck cabling to ABI standards, and am currently rewiring my engine, alternators, relays etc,
A little bit at a time, also I installed a wire whereby I can (using seaclear) use my TV PIP to follow our navigation when I am laying in bed, I use the Nema 0183 output into my laptop via a Belkin gender bender, output that on a second screen via a 30 foot VGA cable to my TV, I have not figured out how to turn on the Autopilot yet but one day I will so can lay there and control the boat, gosh technology is great.
yes french design and the technology is really vanguard but then on the other side, they are really poor in the executive quality ... typical for my french neighbours ! I love my boat, but the next one will be a german product!

"Sam, I am just in the process of replacing both of my eyebrow windows. I have the new ones from Beneteau and am talking with dealer in Florida re Bebeteaus advice. It would be helpful to talk to you about your experience. I have never seen…"
Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response. Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
