Thanks for the info about the salon table. It looks like a very UNslick piece of design work. Not what I would expect from Beneteau.
If given a choice, avoid any 351/352 powered by a Perkins diesel.
This is a separate datum, which I picked up somewhere else too. Is it the Perkins that is the problem? Maintenance issues? Reliability?
Why is this advice specific to 351/352? Is it the installation in the hull that presents an issue?
