Designed by Berret-Racoupeau and built by Beneteau, the Moorings 51.5 is the latest addition to our fleet. She features a large cockpit, generous interior volumes, 4 double cabins with en-suite heads and shower, plus crew quarters with a head and sink in the peak. The large galley is across a U-shaped saloon with a large table that also converts to a double bed. An additional settee offers more seating and additional storage. Behind the settee, a full size cabinet provides additional refrigeration storage and counter space. Generous water and fuel capacities, a standard generator and air conditioning add to the comfort of this blue water cruiser.

Hull & Deck
The hull is single-skinned balsa sandwich construction with reinforcement points.
A built-in structural inner moulding is bonded and laminated to the hull at intervals. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (keel, rudder, etc.) and spreads any loads guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.
The inner moulding with its perfect surface gives extra stowage space under the sole and makes cleaning easier.
A skeg is moulded into the hull to protect the propeller shaft.
Prevention against osmosis by use of vinylester resin.
The gel coat is white.
The deck is sandwich construction (glass fibre and balsa) for an optimal strength/weight ratio as well as excellent sound and thermal insulation.
A ?diamond point? non-slip surface increases safety over all areas of movement on deck.
There are solid reinforcement points under the deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain plates, cleats).
A built-in inner deck moulding completes the deck structure and helps to perfect its finish.
A straight deck line with an aluminium toerail forms the hull/ deck joint. This join ensures a watertight assembly and improves safety when moving around on deck. The transom/ hull joint is secured with a rubber rubbing strake.
To improve durability the keel is given an anticorrosion treatment using epoxy based coatings and paint.
