Ancasta is delighted to present for sale this lovely 2017 model of the Jeanneau 51 with only one owner from new, the space this boat offers has to be seen to be appreciated. Externally the large and open cockpit offers its guests an abundance of entertaining space, along with unrivalled visibility from the twin helm position aft. To the stern there is an electric folding swim platform / terrace again perfectly suited for easy access aboard and the ideal spot for lounging in the afternoon sun. Below deck the boat becomes its own, making the most of every inch the beam has to offer. The open plan saloon and galley gives you the below deck entertainment space for your guests with generous headroom and ample seating space. Specified from new this model is fitted with the master cabin with ensuite, and two aft cabins (one ensuite) and a day heads.

An extract from the Jeanneau 51 marketing; A true second home on the water, the Jeanneau Yachts 51 is an invitation to travel, a splendid setting for you to escape and to experience, in complete autonomy, unforgettable moments at sea.

Refined and elegant, the interior of the Jeanneau Yachts 51 shines in its style, as well as in its ergonomic design for longer cruises. Copious storage, a clever galley a pantry, enabling you to install options such as a washing machine or a wine fridge, and especially, tanks and batteries for greater autonomy on board. Forward, the vast owner's cabin, bathed in light, affords maximum comfort and copious storage. Guests are not left out, with a spacious guest cabin – or two, according to your options – located aft, with plenty of headroom.

On the exterior, the cockpit features multiple living areas, distributed for the various moments and activities on board. The sheets of the mainsail and genoa are led back to the helm, clear of passengers, who can enjoy relaxing on two comfortable sun loungers, located on either side of the companionway. At anchor, the cockpit accommodates six to eight people around a table, equipped with a refrigerated compartment, while a wide swim platform provides access to the sea or additional space to sunbathe.
The Jeanneau 51 is a true elegant cruiser, offering a home away from home feel. Free Spirit is still in her first ownership and benefits from the preferred three cabin two heads layout making for comfortable living and copious amounts of space for extended periods on the water. A must see if your looking in the 50ft class.
