Designed by the French naval architects Berret-Racoupeau, and fitted out by the Italian Nauta Yachts team, the new Sense 57 remains loyal to the line’s basic concept.
The deck plan of this sailcruiser is unique : the cabins being located to the bow, allowing the cockpit to be positioned lower, creating more headroom and a bigger lighter space. Lowering the cockpit allows for increased flow to the saloon with fewer steps.
Thanks to this major architectural innovation, the Sense profile is lower on the water and its lines are sleek... The Sense 57’s characteristic hull, offers a feeling of safety and a great level of performance at sea. Perfectly balanced under sail and highly manoeuvrable even with a limited crew, the cruising comfort is second to none.
The semi-hard Bimini top is one of the innovations of this new model, specifically developed to shelter the spacious cockpit from the sun and bad weather. It allows to alter the degree of protection to suit, by simply opening it or closing it manually. For maximum protection, extra clears can be added to close off the cockpit completely.
Other evolution: the large hydraulic swim platform lifts to close off the cockpit entirely, making cruising much safer, especially when children are onboard.
The exterior galley offers a BBQ and a sink cleverly concealed below the helm seats, so that it's possible to enjoy the best of what life offers in the open air.
