How much ? Normally boats will sit pretty level . But get loaded unevenly . Did have a genset that was removed ? was it off set ?

This boat never had a gen set. She leans about 3/4 of an inch or if I place 250 lbs weight at the port aft corner will correct it.

Mine starts to list to port when the water tank starts going down and black water starts filling and gets worse the more water that gets used. Probably not your issue but just thought I'd mention it.

Waste, water and fuel tanks are all in line in the center of the boat.
I asked before but i will ask again, is the 9 meter International cored with balsa wood below water line or hull sides?

No.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

My 11 Meter Sedan also does this. I've always assumed it was because the lower helm station and 2 air conditioners are located on the starboard side of the boat without any significant offsetting weight on the port. Also, all the wiring and cabling going from the lower helm and the engine room to the upper one passes up inside the starboard wall.

Thank you for your responses. I still can't figure out what causing it.
