I agree with the rationale to get all the "performance package" hardware. That is very nice equipment to have.
I also agree with the others who cautioned against going with the extra-deep draft. You are already in deep draft territory with the standard keel -- deep enough to limit re-sale in some areas. By the same token, I probably wouldn't want the shoal/wink keel on a boat that size unless I had an absolute draft restriction that couldn't be fudged (like my own dock).
I actually like Hellosailor's suggestion of getting a lead keel from Mars instead -- something around 5'10" or so. I wonder what sort of "credit" you could get from Jeaneau for deleting the keel?
