Dear all,
My new boat Oceanis 43 will arrive soon.
Do you have any suggestions about her?

I'm finishing negotiations on my OC 43
Guys, I have some question about it and would appreciate your clarification, or share of your experience. How you're about the systems, failures, and liveability of the boat ?

1- What brand and power is your windlass ?
2- What brand is the MP3 radio ? Does it support iPod ?
3- What brand are the loudspeakers ? size ?
4- Where they install it belowdecks ?
5- Does showers comes with protection (that acrilic door to avoid wetting) ?
6- What size (Amps) is the extra battery ?
7- Where they mount the microwave ?
8- Does the microwave runs out of the inverter ?

Thanks for your patience ....

3-/4-I rathered JBL 20cm the 2 are just under the cockpit helm seats
5-The protections are extra price as known , I didn't want them.And I am still very happy without them.

Thanks Atansev
I just returned 2hs ago from dealer, and finally closed the deal. My OC43 should arrive somewhere begining November, in time to use next weather window to bring her home !!!!

One more point ...
90 galons seems a very small tankage. Cruising with family will make some short of water. Anyone has fixed it ?
