Preview The Beneteau OC 51.1, On Display At The 2021 Palm Beach Boat Show.

Beneteau thought of three different sailers when it designed the Oceanis 51.1 — the racer, the cruiser, and the daysailer. One hull design has the flexibility to cater to different sailing levels. Sound too good to be true? The OC 51.1 offers 4 different interior layouts, 5 rigging plans, 3 keel types, and a choice of 150 available options to result in more than 700 combinations of customizations. That’s impressive.

A brand new OC 51.1 will be at the 2021 Palm Beach Boat Show with Beneteau and Denison Yachting. We’re highlighting the top 3 features on the Oceanis 51.1 so you know what to expect when you see it at the show. Schedule a tour now so you don’t miss out.

1. Ideal Cockpit For Socializing

As a sailor, where do you spend the majority of your time on the boat? Most sailors hang out aft, which is why Beneteau optimized the cockpit on the OC 51.1 to create separate areas for socializing and sailing. An abundance of cockpit seating makes it a comfortable boat to invite friends and family onboard without worrying about anyone getting in the way of the helm station. One of the features that make sailing this boat so enjoyable is the protection you get from a huge bimini and dodger. When you see this boat in person, you’ll get a real appreciation for the expansive cockpit and be able to picture yourself enjoying lunch on the water.

2. Enormous Interior Volume

The architectural choices that stand out on the Oceanis 51.1 reflect her livability. Modern advancements in hull design allow for expanding interior volume to reach unprecedented levels, creating even more living space to enjoy life at sea. Inside, the owner’s cabin has an ensuite shower room and toilet and a wide island bed. A fully-fitted U-shaped galley offers convenient appliances and plenty of storage space, while the large dinette can convert into an additional large double bed. The interior atmosphere on the OC 51.1 is pleasant and comfortable.

3. Fun To Sail & Easy To Shorthand

The majority of the running rigging is conveniently close to the starboard helm station and primary and secondary electric winches. Unique to this latest generation from Beneteau is the integrated tow rail in the clutter-free side deck, which eliminates tripping hazards when moving forward or aft. You’ll find controls for the bow thruster, windlass chain counter, Yanmar ignition panel, and throttle at the starboard helm station. The daysailor and the avid sailor will appreciate the sail plan’s flexibility with 5 rigging plans, 3 keel types.
