I have noticed since my 455 was new that while moored it heels to port even with the starboard fuel tank full.
Is this commen?

My 455 does not. Ask your dealer.

Yes I asked the dealer and there happened to be one just commissioned, it had the same heel. They are trying to tell me itís normal!

Yes its very common.  We have a practice of anything new we store or install going on starboard.

Is your rigging equal on both sides? Mast perpendicular to the deck?

Yes I have checked the mast with the halyard by measuring to the toe rail, if any it's slightly leaning to starboard. A little heel I could put up with but the corner of the oven is hitting the fridge when I open it causing a dent!

Same for my 445 from 2014, always slightly heels to port side. Also checked the rigging, was OK. I guess this is a design flaw in the total weight distribution or a (small) hull shape error.
