Oceanis 51

Our Oceanis 51.1 is a beautiful yacht and the first of the new generation from Beneteau. Delivered new this year (2020) she comes with an Ocean Elements' Skipper or you can choose to charter her without a skipper. Skippers will do as much (or as little) of the sailing as you like. So you can choose to be involved with all aspects of sailing or just relax and have it all done for you.

Enjoy the benefits of a large yacht: room to relax, without the need to be planning, sailing, worrying about anchorages and mooring facilities, or where's best to eat! Our Skippers are highly qualified and experienced sailors, with a local knowledge of the best places to visit.

You’ll have the opportunity to follow our flotilla route or to discover waters further afield and choose your own itinerary. You’ll enjoy your own 'private swimming pool’ off the back of the yacht, clearwater anchorages and secret beaches galore.

The yacht has 4 double sleeping cabins and 4 bathrooms (or heads as we call them!), so each cabin has its own en-suite WC and shower. The crew cabin (and head) is separate to the main living area so your family and friends can enjoy more privacy. For added privacy, the skipper can sleep on our leadboat (by special arrangement) when following the flotilla route.

About the Oceanis 51.1

The 51.1 is the latest generation. A spacious, elegant and cleverly designed yacht... and she’s a very good sailing boat too! She’s fast and rewarding and will cruise under power at around 9 knots, so you can cover long distances effortlessly. The emphasis is on deck living, with a very spacious cockpit, many relaxation and sun bathing areas, as well as a huge aft swimming platform.

The moment you step onto the 51.1 your senses tell you that this is a very special, very premium yacht. She looks great on the water and makes you feel truly pampered. Inside, there’s four double sleeping cabins, 4 bathrooms plus a crew cabin and head (separate to the main living area), and a more-than-ample saloon. On deck, there’s two separate sunbathing areas and a large swim platform. This is a yacht designed with comfort and space in mind.

Skippered Charter

Your skipper will sleep aboard in a dedicated crew cabin which has a separate entrance and heads to the main living area, so that your family and friends can enjoy more privacy. Skippered charter suits guests who love to sail (and have done a lot of sailing) and those of whom have never sailed before. You can do as much or as little sailing as you want. Relax and have all the sailing done for you, or treat your skipper as a (very experienced) assistant while you take over the controls and sail the boat to your heart’s content. Whatever you choose, our skipper will just need a hand with the occasional tasks like mooring up, which is easy enough.

For added privacy, the skipper can sleep on our leadboat (by special arrangement) when following the flotilla route.

You can follow our pre-planned route or decide where you want to go. We like to cruise around the classical Greek Riviera which starts and finishes the week at our 4* Beach Club hotel in Porto Heli. Your skipper knows the best anchorages and ports to visit and has a local knowledge, allowing you to truly enjoy this incredible cruising ground.


Ocean Elements’ Flotillas and Flexi Flotillas are run from Lefkas in the Ionian and Porto Heli, in the Aegean. Our skippered yachts can cruise alongside our flotilla to enjoy the social element of our sailing programme, or go their own way and enjoy a split between flotilla and bareboat, which we call ‘Flexi-Flotilla’. Ultimately, you can choose where to cruise.

If you follow our flotilla (which promises to be a sociable week) you’ll get to explore the mythical and sheltered waters of the Argolic Gulf and visit cultural hot spots, like the typically Greek Ermioni, the medieval Nafplion and the island of Hydra. We also visit the caves of Franchthi (the oldest human dwelling in the world) dating back to the Mesolithic period.


Stay & Sail

This yacht is available as a two week Stay Sail in Porto Heli. Combine a relaxing week at our Nautica Bay Beach Club with inclusive water sports, activities, excursions and kids clubs on tap; then a week aboard your own yacht, as your skipper enables you to cruise around the classical Greek Riviera, before finishing back at our Beach Club.

It’s the perfect ‘twin centre’ holiday, as you combine the best of both worlds’: the relaxation and watersports at our Beach Clubs with the freedom of a yacht holiday.
