Re: Schengen and bilateral agreements - includes Aust, NZ, Canada, US etc

ETIAS is not a visa but an authorisation similar to the US ESTA and will be needed by everyone that does not need a visa to enter Schengen.
It will not change the length of stay in the Schengen countries.

ETIAS was done because the USA insisted on having Europeans get a visa waiver.
Nothing else is changed.

Re: Schengen and bilateral agreements - includes Aust, NZ, Canada, US etc

I have read all this and would appreciate any advice:
We are going to FR in late May to visit the Factory and attend Outremer Cup Week and Regatta.
Rather than fly back to the US we will buy a Eurail Pass and travel 3-4 weeks until our boat is ready for delivery the first week of July in southern France.
We plan to sail locally for 35 days and return to the US for 2 weeks then back to FR pick up the boat and head either to Greece or Montenegro/Turkey/Croatia and winter the boat out of the EU by mid-November.
We will exceed the 90 days unless we hustle over to Turkey or Croatia.

Is it a viable solution to obtain a 1 year French Visa and will that allow us to travel any EU/Schengen country for the 1 year period without penalty?

If I were you, I'd head over to the UK or Ireland for the 3-4 weeks after the Outremer Cup and bank those Schengen days for after you take delivery of the boat.

Unlike a Schengen extension or travelling under a bilateral agreement, the French residency visa does allow you to travel to other countries in the Schengen territory. Since you're still in the US, and going back for a few weeks after the initial visit, I'd shoot for a residency visa if you can. But before applying, look into if you'd then be required to pay VAT on the new boat.

Perfect timing to be in England. Queens birthday Parade, Wimbledon Tennis and round the Island Yacht Race
