Designed by Berret-Racoupeau and superbly fitted out by Nauta Yachts the new Sense 51 remain loyal to the line’s basic concept. The deck plan is unique as the cabins are located to the bow which allows the cockpit to be positioned lower creating more headroom and a bigger lighter space. Lowering the cockpit allows for increased flow to the saloon with fewer steps. Thanks to this major architectural innovation, the Sense profile is lower on the water and its lines are sleek.
The Sense 51’s characteristic hull offer a feeling of safety, while offering a great level of performance at sea. Perfectly balanced under sail and highly manoeuvrable even with a limited crew, the cruising comfort is second to none.
The large saloon is bathed in natural light and with the galley on one side it makes entertaining a breeze. The Sense 51 offers three spacious forward cabins, one of which is the master which has a large luxurious island bed. When it comes to the interior finish Nauta Design have paid particular attention to detail and the cabinetry is finished in your choice of fruit-tree and matt walnut woods.
The semi-hard Bimini top is a major innovation, specifically developed to shelter the spacious cockpit from the sun and bad weather. It allows you to alter the degree of protection to suit, by simply opening it or closing it manually. For maximum protection, extra clears can be added to close off the cockpit completely.
The large hydraulic swim platform lifts to close off the cockpit entirely, making cruising much safer, especially if you have children onboard.
The exterior galley offers a BBQ and a sink cleverly concealed below the helm seats, so that you can enjoy the best of what life offers in the open air.
With incredible freshwater autonomy and the possibility of fitting renewable energy sources (solar, wind generator), the new Sense are designed for ocean cruising.
The Sense 51 will make its début in the nautical world at the the Nautic boat show in Paris. (3-11 December 2016)
