Beneteau 51.5 (2006) 'La Vida'

Beneteau 51The Beneteau 51.5 ‘La Vida’ from Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada base is an outstanding charter yacht with excellent sailing performance whilst being easy to control. The cockpit is huge and features a large table with drop leaves for perfect sociability.

All lines are led back to the cockpit for safety and ease of handling, while dual helm positions provide superb visibility. The yacht features a chart plotter, autopilot and instruments, all close at hand in the cockpit.

The wide beam on the Beneteau 51.5 translates to a terrific amount of space down below – about twice the volume of more traditional 50-footers. This ensures maximum comfort for charter guests and will allow you to gain maximum enjoyment from your Grenada sailing vacation.

Below deck, each of the four well ventilated cabins have en-suite heads and showers. The fore-aft galley is very well appointed with 2 refrigerators and lots of counter top and storage space. Our Beneteau 51.5 charter yacht in Grenada is fitted with a generator and air conditioning ensuring you can stay cool even on the hottest Caribbean day!

Up forward a single bunk cabin with its own head provides accommodation for a skipper if required.

Please also review the list of included equipment and amenities Horizon Yacht Charters provides on all our yachts.
