With its combination of excellence sailing performance, easy handling under power and luxurious accommodations, the Beneteau Sense 50 redefines the optimum capabilities of a large performance cruiser.
The 2011's Cruising World Best Full-Size Cruiser stands apart with her original overall layout. The boat's deep, wide-open cockpit includes twin wheels and helm seats that hinge up and out. At anchor, the seating area functions like a sun deck for the crew and the space under the sails proves to be comfortable and seaworthy.
The large companionway and full beam salon make the transition between the cockpit and the interior really smooth. The salon's low orientation and wraparound views, paired with the comfortable settee and oversized galley, makes the Sense 50's interior space comparable to the one of a catamaran.
The boats offers two cabins with en suite heads and an "office" cabin. The comfortably large master cabin is forward and its head includes a separate shower compartment.
From bow to stern, enjoy the surprisingly well organized living quarters, rethought to provide a sense of well-being, simplicity and exquisite finish touches.

Beneteau Sense 50 Concept
BENETEAU has designed a lowered secure cockpit which positively alters life on board. Thanks to this innovation, the SENSE 50 combines stretched and flowing lines with ease of access to the sea and the salon. The ultra wide and spacious cockpit is designed to accommodate sailors and guests in novel and distinctive spaces, free from the constraints normally generated by aft cabins. Under the cockpit there is a technical area with tremendous storage; plus all the systems, machinery and deck equipment are brought together under the cockpit to ensure that noise is separated from the living area.
A well protected living space having perfect communication with the cockpit and outdoors: The companionway is extremely convenient, with access to the salon by just 3 steps with a 45°angle to provide safe and easy movement, while everywhere the generously wide hand rails ensure safety for movement on board. A wide glass area and openings on both sides of the companionway promote a sense of harmony allowing life below and above deck to blend seamlessly together.
Layouts: 2 cabins, 2 heads with a choice of a 3rd sleeping cabin or an office are available according to each owner's preference. Life after dark at the forward end of the boat: bed and bathrooms. The owner's bedroom and that of his VIP guests have ensuite bathrooms with a separate shower. This means that the cabins are better ventilated and privacy is emphasized with the bedrooms insulated from cockpit and dock noise. These choices confirm the commitment of SENSE to provide increased levels of comfort to the owners and their guests.
On board SENSE, priority is given to the pleasure of being on the water including an innovative deck plan with the controls (winches, halyards, genoa sheets, etc.) located aft of the relaxing cockpit area. The mainsheet is led back to a fixed arch which allows the companionway to be unrestricted.
SENSE is designed for sailing with complete freedom. · The fresh water capacity can be increased to 193 gallons. · The fuel tanks hold up to 219 gallons. · The boat is ready for renewable energies (solar, wind power) ô€‚¾ SENSE for the self-sufficient travellers. SENSE is also adapted for tomorrow's technologies: · Hybrid engines · Boat-handling assistance with the Dock and Go
Additionally, SENSE has the option of a motorized companionway door, electric tables, electric blinds, 32" LCD LED pop-up TV, recharging station, generator, ice maker, dishwasher, and many other optional equipment items.
SENSE: seaworthy boats designed for sailing on a more even keel. Comfortable cruising does not have to mean restricting comfort and therefore pleasure to time at anchor or at a marina slip. The hull design has been created in collaboration with Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design, to deliver maximum performance at 15° heeling angle instead of the normal 20°. The advantage of this is clear - movement around the boat while sailing is safer and easier.
The trio of BENETEAU, Nauta Design, and Berret/Racoupeau together form a team of proven and complementary talents, who already have to their credit the complete renewal of the 9 models of the OCEANIS range.
The quality of the design being fundamental to the well-being of the crew, SENSE extends an invitation to view interiors that are elegant and contemporary in style. Alpi fruitwood finish with defined pleasing grain, bleached oak laminated cabin sole, homestyle upholstery, synthetic resin work surfaces with built in sinks and high-tech equipment have been selected with care in collaboration with the Nauta design studio. As a nod to multi-functionalism; certain items fold away when not in use such as the stovetop, TV, seats, etc. The SENSE 50: a seaworthy yacht which provides owners and their guests an exceptional quality of life on board.
DOCK AND GO
The revolutionary DOCK & GO system makes manoeuvring your Sense 50 in close quarters complete child’s play.
Gone is the stress of manoeuvring in harbour. BENETEAU has launched DOCK & GO, an exclusive innovation to bring your boat alongside with complete peace of mind.
BENETEAU re- invents boat handling
By allowing yachtsmen to have access to the most complicated harbour berths, BENETEAU is removing a huge burden from sailors’ enjoyment of being on the water and lifting the apprehension felt about manoeuvring. A child would be able to bring a Sense 50 or Oceanis 50 alongside her berth, in complete confidence.
An intuitive joystick makes berthing precise, safe and fun.
Thanks to its joystick, which synchronises a pivoting saildrive base and bowthruster, DOCK & GO allows you to manoeuvre a large sailing yacht calmly, whatever the wind and tide or port layout.
Fun and very intuitive, the system makes berthing the boat in a restricted space easy and gives a precision of movement without comparison.
Uniting safety and thrust, DOCK & GO combines the assistance of the engine and bowthruster, giving the same thrust both astern and ahead. Compatible with feathering or folding propellers, DOCK & GO optimises a yacht’s thrust for all-round manoeuvrability.
