The Jeanneau 51 has taken many of the winning features of the very successful Jeanneau 54 and simply transferred them into a fabulous 51-foot sailing yacht. Designed by Philippe Briand the 51 is a great passage maker and massively comfortable. She offers cruising couples and their guests a winning cruiser package.
Some of the highlights of the superb Jeanneau 51 include
- Twin helm steering for optimal ergonomics in the cockpit and ease of handling
- Electronic boarding platform built into the transom with custom designed loungers.
- Two or three cabins with two or three heads options
- Conventionally laid out functional and spacious interior
- Raymarine electronics suite, 1500W electric windlass, bow thruster and choice of sail plan

Outside style and decklife.
This yacht features a wide drop-down electronic bathing platform. It is built into the transom and unfolds to offer easy access to and from the dinghy. The “aft terrace” as Jeanneau refer to this transom has custom designed loungers for sunbathing whilst anchored. The helm seats are also hinged and fold up at anchor to give even more space. The cockpit is well thought out with a huge drop-leaf cockpit table incorporating drinks holders and big enough storage to house a life-raft.
Also, aft is a neatly designed integrated retractable telescopic davit for the dinghy.
There is generous cockpit seating with cut-outs in the aft coach roof bulkhead that extend the cockpit benches a foot or so forward of the companionway. Just the same as the Jeanneau 54, these are the perfect spot to hang out, slightly out of the way and cosily tucked up under the dodger, great on a longer passage.
Sail controls are easily reached with the german mainsheet system and genoa sheets led straight back to a pair of Harken cockpit winches either side of the cockpit. All control lines from the mast are led through conduits to Harken winches on the coach-roof and there is a neat bin for the sheet tails.
The chain-plates are set outboard, and the genoa tracks are set in tight alongside the coach roof giving close sheeting angles. This arrangement also leaves the side decks nice and clear. Up forward there is more lounging space on the foredeck and a massive storage locker in the bow.
Two different L-shaped keels are available, the shoal draft at 5ft 8in or deep draft at 7ft 5in. The Jeanneau 51’s wonderfully large single rudder ensures control and great feel. Sprayhood and bimini with led lighting are included a there is an electric windlass at the bow.
Under sail and power
The Seldén fractional rig supports aft-swept spreaders and carries a Dacron furling mainsail and 110% overlapping genoa as standard. But there is plenty of flexibility and choice of sail plan: a full battened classic mainsail is an option. And forward of the mast, you can choose a smaller self-tacking jib as well as a Code 0.
Harken winches are in easy reach, two primary and two on the coach-roof. With a full array of Raymarine electronics and all the sail controls led neatly to the cockpit she is a breeze to sail short-handed.
The Yanmar 80HP sail-drive is standard with a 110HP upgrade available. She’ll deliver over 7 knots at 2,200 rpm and she is responsive and easy to handle under power. The raised throttle control at the starboard helm is at a nice height and means no stooping down to operate the engine. Add the bow thruster and mooring in a tight Marina space becomes a dream and stress-free.
Accommodation: Space and functionality.
The living space below, designed by Andrew Winch and his team, is contemporary, comfortable and has great functionality.
The U-shaped galley to starboard features a double sink, a large front opening loading fridge and three -burner Eno stove with cover to increase countertop space. There is a freezer/ice maker option as well. There is plenty of storage. Forward of the galley is a generous dining area with a large fixed table and U shaped seating for six to starboard. There is an option for the table to drop down into a double berth.
There is a large forward facing chart table to port and a full-length settee. A wine locker is beneath the floorboards.
The modular design allows a choice of layouts below. Available with 2 or 3 double cabins and 2 heads/and utility room, or 3 heads she is very comfortable for 4 or 6 people on a week or two’s charter or extended cruise. The master cabin is forward and has a generous island Queen sized double berth with side tables plus en-suite head with separate shower unit. With the 2 cabin version, the aft port cabin is a VIP double with its own head and separate shower, great for guests. With 3 cabins the two aft cabins are both doubles and ensuite.
High-quality wood finishes in Alpi natural oak or teak, Corian countertops and a well-lit interior exude quality. There are several choices of interior upholstery giving you a wide choice of individual styling.
