A distinquished winner of races such as Edgartown Race Week, the Marblehead/Halifax Race and the New York Yacht Club Annual Cruises, the Sou'wester 51 has also carried families around the world in safely and comfort.
Light and spacious, with five different accommodation plans to choose from. Each cabin and head has a deck hatch to let in light and air. Aromatic cedar lines the hanging lockers. Standard equipment in the galley is a gimballed three-burner stove with an oven, a large stainless steel sink, separate refrigerator and freezer compartment and ample counter space for preparing the finest meals. Whether you are setting sail for the day or for many years, with a racing crew or a relaxed group of family and friends, the Sou'wester 51 is serious fun.
Owners can choose from an aft cockpit or center cockpit deck layout, as well as a ketch or sloop sail plan.

The Sou'wester 51 is a capable bluewater cruising yacht, with a powerful yet easily-handled rig, appropriately sized to drive an amenity-filled boat easily throughout the whole range of wind and sea conditions. In the words of Bob Hinckley, who cruised and raced his Sou'wester 51 Night Train extensively from Maine to the Exumas, "She's the right size boat, with enough waterline and stiffness to power through a seaway, yet not so big that she can't be handled by a cruising couple." The very same design elements needed to yield a fine offshore boat - moderate waterline, graceful overhangs, efficient underwater foils, a balanced sail plan - also make the 51 a formidable opponent in IMS and PHRF competition. Even without the enhancements offered by the Competition version, the Sou'wester 51 shows impressive acceleration, responsiveness and speed on all points of sail.
