    Seeking opinions / feedback from folks who have the Corvina (leather wrapped) steering wheel? Do you love it... has it held up over time with sunscreen inevitably getting on it... is it comfortable to use.... is it a must have vs the standard steering wheel?

    We ordered our 23GSB loaded up with just about everything back in February at the boat show but somehow overlooked the steering wheel. (Insert Homer Simpson saying D'oh!) Our boat is scheduled to arrive next week but was considering whether to ask my dealer if he could possibly upgrade / swap it out even after it arrives if it's truly worth any hassle it may create changing it out.

    Can't wait to take delivery of our new 2019 23GSB Smokey Granite w/ Metallic Sorrel, Smokey Granite canvas curved Blue Ice LED Bimini, Platinum w/ Expresso Pillowtop Diamond upholstery upgrade, Seagrass Beige floor, cooler seat insert, rectangular zebrawood table, Bow gate seat, Swingback keeper rail & privacy enclosure, In-floor storage, Elevated helm, Reclining helm chair w/ bolster, Zebrawood Beige helm accent, Simrad G07, Dual batteries, LED Stainless dock lights, pop-up cleats, Kicker KMC10 Upgrade w/ Sub & Amp + remote for swingback, RGB cupholder + side + rear underwater lighting, 52" Ski pylon, Extended aft deck, SS ladder, ESP, Fuel Tank upgrade, Underdeck Wave Shield & tamer, Yamaha F250, Steering Power Hydraulic Assist, Shark Hide, Lillypad Diving Board, PTM Edge UCX-17 Pro mirror w/ Bennington 20% discount (Thank you forum posting!) & most importantly ... American flag. (Will post pics when we get it)

    We have it on our 23RSFB and it really looks nice and is comfortable. The boat only has about 20 hours on it but so far it's holding up nice. I don't know if it's a must have but i'm glad to have it.

    Welcome ktowntn! By all means, we're going to have to see plenty of pictures once you take possession of her! Very impressive to say the least. Sorry, but I can't help you out with your steering wheel question (D'oh!).

    I have a Corvina only because I came across it at a great deal. I love the look, but I NEVER spent that much on my car steering wheels but I did for my boat ... :confused::confused::confused:

    The stock Bennington wheel is very nice, this is just a little nicer but by no means necessary. You should be happy either way, but if you decide to empty your wallet a little more, you won’t be disappointed. ;)

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. Based on all the great input I have sprung for the Corvina steering wheel option upgrade. It will likely be shipped separately & installed at the dealer. Thanks again! Hope to have some pictures to post in about 2 weeks.
