How do you connect the majestic tv to cable at the marina? I have a 2017 R27

Hello. Sorry but we do not install cable outlets on our boats. You would need to install a cable outlet and run to the TV for this to work.

Thank you,

When we had a R27 I ran a coaxial cable from the tv thru the cavities of the interior and into the cockpit thru a starboard side locker. In the cockpit I installed a typical wall plate. When at dock I could then connect a coaxial cable to shore and the cockpit connection and have cable tv. Honestly thou we found air tv to be just as good in a lot of cases... not all.

On my R27 I installed an A/B coaxial switch near the TV to select antenna or CATV. I ran a coax cable to the cockpit and installed a RV style CATV jack with lid next to the washdown pump outlet.

On our R29 CB our dealer Pocket Yachts installed an A/B switch behind the door in the cave by the breaker panel and the CATV connector by the shore power outlets. Works great and easy to connect at marinas with cable!
