    Detailed Information



    Entering through the aft deck doorway will bring you to the most essential section of the vessel, the pilothouse. Featuring a full 360-degree view of your surroundings, visibility is not a concern while underway. A skylight / hatch above adds additional natural light to an already brightly lit pilothouse and doubles as access to the above boat deck. The helm is located to starboard and is equipped with an extra wide bench seat that accommodates up to four. The console is compact but loaded with engine instrumentation and navigation electronics, to the port of which is a large expanse perfect for charts. This raised flooring of the dash has another purpose, by standing on it and opening the ceiling hatch, you are able to control the boat from another station. This express bridge features additional controls hidden in a weather tight compartment and satisfies the allure of open-air cruising. Continuing to

    port of the pilothouse is access to the salon and accommodations through a few short steps down. Also, to the far port side resides an additional control station with an autopilot and thruster controls which gives added flexibility underway and ease of docking when going port-side to.

Between these huge windows and 78" worth of headroom, this open layout makes the salon an ideal spotfor entertaining guests.

    Along the starboard outboard wall is an L-shaped settee complimented by an adjustable teak coffee table whichdoubles as a dining table by raising up and folding out.

With thisstateroom being larger than the one found to aft it is typically utilized as the master cabin. The island queen isaccessible from either side, each of which is situated with his & hers night stands.

    The Dettling 51 is built from the keel up with precision, experience, and an extreme level of detail. The hull design iscourtesy of Hunt with their deep V hull providing excellent offshore performance. The fiberglass hull constructionutilizes Vinylester resin throughout, vacuum bagged core-cell technology, and is reinforced with four foam-coredfiberglass stringers running the length of the boat. Fourteen layers of fiberglass are used to reinforce the hull anddeck together creating a single strong, impact resistant unit.

    The house and deck both incorporate Divinycell-core fused with 10 layers of fiberglass which provides optimalstiffness and thermal insulation, while remaining relatively light weight. Up on the deck you will find a spacious teakaft deck cockpit with a mounted table and deck chairs allowing for alfresco dining and entertaining.

You will findthe navigation instruments, open array, antennas, and express bridge control station all to forward on the hardtop.


    The engine room is accessed by a hatch in the middle of the aft deck. Additionally, nearly all of the aft deck iscapable of unbolting and lifting off for unrestricted and non-invasive engine access. Once down below the engineroom resides behind a latched, insulated door. The headroom and movement space is especially impressive for the
    engine room of a boat this size. Along with the convenient placement of components for easy maintenance, routinechecks, and service; this engine room is a pleasure to be in.
