I have to say that I don't like the looks of the new hardtop and seat. With the old design, hard top partial in middle and canvas
extension, we were able to add on and cover the steering
position and it looks like it belongs and fits in. I don't know how you would cover the steering
position with the new hard top.
Also with the old design, we got a round cushion covered with the blue and white strip that fits over the bar backrest, so it matches the one in the main cockpit
The head changes are nice with the shelve and mirror, and I like the added seat in the saloon
, but it looks like the fridge was moved to the nav position or is that a freezer
, not sure.
I can't figure out what is in the position of the fridge, is it a cabinet or something else. The oven
being moved up is good, might allow for more cabinet space. Also the flat counters surrounding the settee is different. Now with them being sunken, nothing can slide off. Not that that happens often, but it's one more thing to be concerned about.
Overall, Im just not sure about the overall changes, seems like they build the boat for the weekend sailor or charters, not cruising.
We love our 2010 Mahe, no complaints, we live aboard full time and are cruising in Australia
