The Sense 57 is a glorious blue-water cruising yacht designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living … with minimal visual separation between the saloon and cockpit areas.

With the cabins located to the bow, the unique deck plan is perfect for living aboard long-term or entertaining guests.

Sailing the slender Beneteau Sense 57 is remarkably comfortable and fast thanks to the clever hull design and well balanced sails.

57 On Deck

The spacious cockpit is closer to the water than ever before, making the Sense 57 perfectly balanced under sail and highly manoeuvrable. But beyond innovation, this 57-footer also boasts some fine cruising speeds.

The Beneteau design team have reworked the concept of entertaining on board. Tucked cleverly within the helm seats is a galley module … to starboard is an electric Eno grill and to port are a sink and prep station.

As chef you’ll have your own dedicated work space on the aft deck to prepare meals, interact with those in the cockpit and bask in the sun.

And thanks to Beneteau’s desire to continually innovate, meet the bimini specially designed for the Sense 57.

Super easy to open and close, it shelters the spacious cockpit from the sun and bad weather, seamlessly integrating into the cruiser’s profile. It can be closed completely by adding additional side protection.

The Sense 57 also boasts a large electronic hydraulic swim platform which lifts to close off the cockpit entirely, making cruising much safer, especially when children and pets are on board.

57 Interior

Three deep curved 45 degree steps seamlessly link exterior and interior spaces. As with her sister the Sense 51, the 57 interior is revolutionary thanks to the clever, innovative Beneteau indoor/outdoor design.

Only a few steps away from the cockpit is a large saloon bathed in glorious natural light and offering 360 degree sea views.

A galley running the length of the saloon highlights the interior space and includes ample storage room, 200l fridge and 100l icebox, enlarged work top space, U-shaped bench and great sized fixed table.

The three spacious cabins to the bow are ideal for winding down and resting up for the next big day at sea, and you’ll sleep easier as they are away from the engine and electrical equipment.

All the cabin spaces in the Sense 57 enjoy a superb amount of headroom … the two spacious guest cabins have sliding doors, and the large private owners’ cabin has an en suite shower room, dressing table and excellent storage options.

Beneteau’s customisation options are endless, with particular attention given to details and finishes allowing you to create a warm and luxurious ambience.



When introduced, the Sense was dubbed a ‘monomaran’ for its enormous cockpit and wide transom.

This melding of monohull and catamaran styles produced an open aft end with only two helm seats, which could be lifted up and out of the way. The idea had appeal at the dock but owner feedback showed concern about safety, especially for pets or small children that could take a tumble out the back.

Hearing this, Beneteau introduced a drop-down transom that serves a dual purpose: first, it contains the cockpit with a hard barrier and second, it creates a place to stand when cooking in the newly introduced galley.
