BRING OFFERS FOR THIS HIGH CALIBER TURN KEY WORLD VOYAGER, GREAT COMFORTABLE AND SAFE LIVEABOARD.

The Bristol 51.1 center cockpit is a certainly a beautiful classic yacht with lovely graceful lines and powerful high bow equal to the most beautiful yachts ever built. The Bristol 51.1 is sought after for her brilliant family friendly interior layout. With three private cabins and two full heads you have all the space you need for family cruising. With the owner’s private aft cabin and ensuite head you have wonderful needed privacy. The family or guest quarters forward offer a large V berth that has two single berths port and starboard or which makes a huge double berth. The third cabin has upper/lower berths which are perfect for kids. The forward head is complete with a shower so you have comfortable family cruising. While the sailing performance is excellent the in-mast furling Stoaway mainsail and Harken furling genoa ensure the boat can be single-handed or comfortably sailed by a couple. The bow thruster (marriage saver) is good insurance around the dock for any fifty foot yacht. The keel centerboard design provides for comfortable great cruising in the Chesapeake, Bahamas, Florida and the Keys. With the board up the draft is only 5 foot 3 inches enabling you to get into all the creeks on the Chesapeake and sail all over the Bahamas. The Bristol 51.1 is a real ocean going yacht that will turn heads in New England and with the centerboard down (10 foot draft) you have the windward performance you long for. A classic Dieter Empacher design gives you a heavy displacement for comfortable motion and security with the sail area to give her cruise worthy performance. It’s hard to find a family cruiser with sailor pleasing performance and good looks, but the Bristol 51.1 is a classic you will love.

Bristol Yachts is one of the finest New England boat builders that made American yacht building famous for the most beautiful and luxurious vessels to grace the seas. She was built in the best of boat building times! She is a built extremely well the way boats are supposed to be built of solid fiberglass, real wood, with real mahogany furniture tabbed to the hull sides. The joinery is of the highest quality far above anything you see today, but when you see it, you know it is Bristol Yacht quality! Be sure to read the full specs and also the Review by Robert Perry.
