Mal,

There is a page on the Beneteau site for previous models. If I recall correctly, it's not simple to get to, so I bookmarked the link. We have a 2000 Beneteau 505.

This ought to help:

Previous Models: 500

Regards,
Brad

from mal re Oceanis 50 2003 manuals

Hi Brad,

Many thanks for the info.

I have already tried the beneteau site and the ''other models'' link only allows one to download specs and a brochure....but not owners manual.

thanks.

Mal

You could call Beneteau to see if they have a manual. They are very helpful.

Brad

beneteau 50.3 Owners Manual

Hi Brad,

Many thanks for taking the time to replying to me.

I am based in Europe, and have tried 3 Beneteau agents, non of which could help me for my particular sailboat. I have also tried contacting Beneteau France via email, but have had no replies from them. Even trying to phone them is a mission.

Regards
Malcolm

Malcom,

Beneteau is asking for your hull number. They think you are talking about a Moorings version of a Beneteau 50, so they sent me the manual for that. I put it on a link. Click here for it. (You could also right click and use "Save As".) It's 1.67 meg in size.

If that's not the right manual, then send me your hull number and we'll go from there.

Regards,
Brad

Malcolm,

Thanks. The real stars are Todd and Ward and the rest of the team at Beneteau USA (+1-843-629-53000). I sometimes call them for even the smallest part and they ship it out right away. (Last week it was for new door latches -- it turned out that the latch plate needed to be adjusted and that I didn't really need any new latches.) They also have ready-to-send documents on things like inspecting keel bolts.

Since we have the same boat -- and I never met the previous owner of mine -- let me ask you a question. Do you have 2 large diameter (about 8 inch) hoses going from the "steering quadrant room" to your engine? We have them and I wonder if they really serve any purpose.

Regards,
Brad
