Yacht Sold

Welcome to the Beneteau IDYLLE 15.50  "Sanddollar" She was designed by the famous  Argentinian Yacht designer German Frers and built when the weight of the yacht was less of a concern , relative to comfort, style , and durability. Hence these yachts are beautifully finished inside with teak joinery work that is strong durable and pleasing to the eye.The heavier displacement adds to safety and sea kindliness and German Frers is a master of designing fast boats so they also perform well, and some of these Idylles are raced in the cruiser racer division, successfully.These Beneteau yachts have a 2 inch Balsa cored deck, and a hull thickness of 3 inches below the waterline!The hull profile is the same as a Swan 51 .She is capable of fast , safe , and comfortable offshore passages.Her 38 ft waterline length offers a hull speed of 8.75 knots, so you can expect some fast reaching !The 4 cabin layout offers a high level of comfort and privacy.Two forward cabins  each with en-suite Head and shower ,then a huge owners aft cabin again with en-suite shower and head, then the saloon also has a separate head .One brilliant design feature is the centrally located engine , this gives the two great benefits , low and centralized centre of gravity and 360 degree access to the engine . Having the engine here keeps the weight over the keel improving the seakindliness and reduces pitching and rolling .Sanddollar has only ever had two owners and the seller is  the second owner, previously she was owned by an American citizen and based in the USA, and USCG registered , tax paid in the USA.She was also fitted out with new Doyle sails, three new refrigerators and a new gas cooking range including the supply lines in 2020.She also comes with full electronics package , Chartplotter at the helm , autopilot also.Sanddollar really is a super deal ! A strong , well equipped , capable 51ft sailing yacht with luxury interior accommodations, in great condition having been lovingly looked after at an amazing price !The owner hauls her out every year and also puts new antifouling each year.
