When Beneteau first launched the Sense range of yachts the intention was to provide many of the features found in catamarans, to monohull sailors who wanted the performance, aesthetics and seakeeping qualities that monohulls are known for. The wide yet safe cockpit, the great lounging areas, the shallow angled three steps into the light and airy main salon (6'6" headroom),  the machinery all installed aft, below the cockpit floor and away from the sleeping areas, were some of the unusual features incorporated in the design.

The Sense 50 was the first and most popular model in the range and many were build over the years. In 2015 Beneteau decided to make some adjustments to the design, specifically in the cockpit area with the inclusion of a combination hard/soft top bimini that operates rather like a convertible sports car roof. The rear seating and transom step areas were also redesigned to improve stowage and allow an outside galley/grill area as well as a folding transom for easy access to the water and into a dinghy. 

From bow to stern, the Sense 51 features well organized living quarters, re-thought to provide a sense of well-being, simplicity and freedom, all in bright open spaces.

Salon & galley are situated aft, down 3 steps from the cockpit, allowing easy access from the cockpit. The interior is very light thanks to large wrap around windows along sides of the coachroof and into the cockpit. With ventilation provided by hatches and portlights. 

The linear Galley is along the starboard hull with storage above and below counter level, resin counter top with inserts over the sinks and stove to create a long, clean work surface when needed.  There is additional counter space and storage above  against the aft bulkhead.

Midships is a storage unit which houses a retractable TV set. It doubles as a midships seat for the dining table and a leaning 'post' for the cook  in rough weather.  The seat folds up when not in use allowing free flow to the living area.

To port is the salon/dinette, with U-shaped settee, with ultraleather cushions,  around a table that can be lowered to any height including the height of the settee to create a double berth.  The aft section of the seat doubles as an aft-facing seat for the nav station which is along the port, aft bulkhead.  The seat can be raised/adjusted 15 degrees when the boat is heeling so that the navigator sits flat at all times.  Electrical panels and switches are hidden behind sliding doors above counter level and there is storage above, the nav station and along the port hull at eye height.

Forward of the salon is a passageway that leads to the living accommodation. To port is the guest head, with separate shower and  the guest cabin with double bed, and an access door from passageway and another into the head.

To starboard is the office, with counter along the hull, storage and washer-dryer near the door on the forward bulkhead.

The owner's suite is forward.  The head is to starboard, with head, basin, separate shower & plentiful storage. The owner's cabin is in the bow, with full lengthe storage to port and starboard, a centerline queen berth that can be accessed from both sides, TV and storage on the aft bulkhead.  Large windows in the hull provide light and a view of the water, a deck hatch provides light and ventilation
