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.

Especially our lovely Bristol “Brian Boru” for she is no ordinary Bristol 51.1. She has served her family very well for over 15 years cruising the East Coast and Bahamas extensively. Brian Boru has served her family well. She has in turn received treatment that only the finest and most loved vessels get. Over the past few years, Brian Boru has received consistent maintenance to keep everything up the snuff.

Here are the highlights of recent upgrades:

  • New Fuel tanks in 2013

  • New thru hull fittings

  • New Awlgrip paint job 2018

  • New batteries 2018

  • New Sails - Mainsail 2010 and Genoa in 2009

  • New Simrad Chart Plotter 2014

  • Masts and booms pulled inspected sanded and Awlgripped 2007

  • Rigging inspection and upgrades 2015

  • New Dodger, Bimini and canvas 2016

  • New Apex dinghy and outboard

  • New AC Unit (one of two) 2017

  • And so many amenities including

  • New Custom mattresses

  • Titled bathrooms and showers

Brian Boru now in Annapolis and she will be in the David Walters Yachts Blue Water Boat Show in October. She is one of those really special vessels and it is evident immediately. You will not be disappointed in any way. And her owner wants her sold now as evidenced by the recent price reduction!
