I thought I'd found THE boat. Five year old Beneteau
393 coming out of caribbean charter
, at an affordable price
. I've read the stories about ex charter
boats, good and bad, and am not discouraged. At first, I wasn't concerned it's a French built boat. I think I can handle the 220 voltage issue. But now I am finding the French model is different from her US sistership in other ways, like a steering pedestal
that pivots the wheel
to the side. And some people claim there is a difference in the quality of US and French versions of the same model. This perception could kill resale, even if it's not true.
I checked with the beneteau
owners group to see if anyone brought such a boat into the U.S. but I rec'd no feedback. So I am asking you guys. Has anybody bought a french bene for use in US? If so, how did it work for you?
