More about Beneteau IDYLLE 15.5 

Beneteaus Idylle series are not the inexpensive plastic boats.

Beneteau produced the German Frers designed 51 from 1985 to 1987.

The 51 Idylle is a Frers designed boat, and Frers always pens fast yachts.

The 51 has an raked bow, classic sheer, and flat stern.

Her toerail is the perforated aluminum and the trunk cabin is low and racy with the well aft cockpit. Underneath she has a deep, 66 fin keel and spade rudder.

The propeller is half way between the rudder and keel. She looks sexy underway with her sharp, low cutting profile.

These Beneteaus were built in France. The deck has a 2 inch balsa core. 

You have 360 degree, unhindered access to the 85 HP Perkins 4.236.

Beneteau Idylle 51 is an excellent long distance cruiser.

Good lay-out with three cabins and a fourth crew cabin now in use as storage.
