Please contact me regarding your Beneteau
. I sold a 49 Beneteau
(same year) to a buyer in Orange County CA and there's been no reports of such an issue. In the 17 years as a yacht broker in SoCal, it's only been the Westerbeke
engines in Catalina
Yachts that have had documented history
back pressure and Mercruiser Gas engine
(not applicable) with valve overlap that will siphon water
into the head
on idle. My preliminary research
doesn't indicate that you are experiencing a systemic design issue...so, I have to wonder why you have been so poorly supported by the Builder
and the the multiple replacement service
I have a SoCal client/friend that is a US Citizen (32 years), Phd. Pychologist and Sailor from Chile
. We have been discussing the possibility of a trip to Chile
this winter and took note of your vessel as a possible starting point to the trip. He was not planning an immmeditae purchase
but perhaps if the price
is right...we would be willing to work on the issues and get you the cash for your Med adventure. I spent 3 weeks with a client on a 54 Oyster
out of Garrucha Spain
....He's another reference.
If you add (.com) to my unser name...you can check us out.
I saw that the lisiting is Open and the 1 contact I had with a listing broker was extremely poor...so I decided to try to reach you directly.
If nothing else, I think I can help you solve the issue...just need more information. Thank you. -Art
