The 51.1 is the first of a new generation. With taut lines, a new stepped hull and a clever deck plan... Each of the three Oceanis 51.1 models is in a league of its own. Incredibly comfortable, and much faster than any of her forerunners... Whether you choose a Smart Cruiser, Comfort Cruiser, or Fast Cruiser... You will set trends for others to follow.
Sailing any of the three exuberant Oceanis 51.1 models is a pleasure. A third of the hull is now stepped, and in addition to the aesthetics of this flared shape, the new hull creates loads of extra interior space - allowing for exciting new layouts on a boat this size. With emphasis on taut cruiser lines, she is a joy to move around and is reassuringly safe. The spacious cockpit has heaps of relaxation and sun baking space, as well as Beneteau's award winning electronic swim platform.
Sail the SMART or COMFORT Oceanis 51.1 and you'll notice the furling mast, self-tacking jib and all the halyards and sheets on the standard model are all brought back to a single winch at each of the helm stations, making her simple and easy to sail. Manoeuvring around a tight marina? The built in Dock & Go technology simplifies everything. The 51.1 COMFORT cruiser also features and integrated bowsprit, Beneteau unique mainsail arch for a safe and clutter free cockpit and sunbeds. If you you select the high performance 51.1 Fast Cruiser, you'll notice she's fitted with an extra-tall arbon or aluminium mast. This delivers up to 35% additional sail area. The extra sail is balanced by a 2.8 m lead bulb keel. A composite steering wheel, top-of-the-range deck fittings, rigid vang and hydraulic backstays all ensure optimal performance and crew comfort.
Glide easily down enormous stairs to an area bathed in natural light, thanks to large hull portholes and skylights that emphasize the elegant design by Nuata... Soak in the atmosphere and enjoy every moment. The customisation options are endless. Beneteau have taken the idea of a 'custom made' yacht, and put it within reach, literally. With over 700 different variations, including your choice of brushed oak and mohogany woodwork, each of these three models can be built entirely around you, and for you.
And while the SMART and PERFORMANCE model offer the high quality level of luxury you are used to with Beneteau, when you select The Oceanis 51.1 'Height of COMFORT' model you'll enjoy that, and a little more. Architecturally, she stands alone in her class. The private owner's cabin has an en-suite shower room and toilet, and a 1.6 m wide island bed. A fully-fitted U-shaped galley has many convenient appliances. This is truly a space to enjoy together, and as incredible under sail, as at anchor.
