What are the depths you will be anchoring in?
What anchor will you have? (I recommend going two sizes up from recommended size if you anchor overnight). Mantus anchors are great.
If anything it will level out the boat better since Beneteau put the water tanks and cockpit storage so far back but if you run empty water and don't store anything then you got to try the weight up front.
