Beneteau differences

Actually, Beneteau offers lead keels as an option on most of its models that have keel options. Oddly enough, lead is typically only offered on the deep draft versions and not on the shoal draft versions. While you might argue that only a buyer looking for a deep draft version might care enough about performance to want pay the premium for a lead keel, it would seem to me that the folks with shoal draft keels are the ones who really need the enhansed preformance of a lead keel.

Regards,
Jeff
