First, congratulations on the new boat. We’ve had our ST34 for a little over 2 years and absolutely love it!!
Secondly, I ran into the same problem with the shore power cords. We docked at a marina with a bad power outlet that fried our neutral on one of the cables, and ended up having to order a new one from Beneteau through our dealer. I wasn’t able to find an adapter but that would be the ideal solution.

Good luck!

So I call my dealer and he told me my boat has the European sockets. So now I'm wondering if there's an adapter that I could use on my regular North American shore power cables to convert the male end to European pins? any help with this ?

My dealer also told me he could also change the sockets in the boat to north american sockets ...

Change the power inlet...

Also if you have a DVD player factory installed - check to see if it compatible with our american format

My power inlet fried due to what was determined to be a loose wire on the inlet connection. I recommended to a few members to pull their inlets to check them. You don't have to get parts from Beneteau or a dealer. eBay or West Marine or Amazon etc

I just posted the pictures on the Electrical and Electronics & Navigation forum , under European Cables thread
