Model Introduction
The Dettling 51 is superbly crafted""an engineering tutorial""exceedingly quiet and economically propelled with pleasing proportions and classic lines. The hull freeboard is moderate, with the interior picking up its volume, and its remarkable habitability, in its superstructure. Accommodations include two suites separated by an airy saloon and home-like galley. The advantages of the aft-engine room design are legion, including engine noise and vibration isolation from the accommodations, a ready means to change out engines through the open deck above, a lower-profile superstructure, and room for the fuel tanks amidships near the hull's center of gravity, which keeps trim constant as fuel is consumed.

Construction
The Dettling 51 is exceptionally well built, strong and of moderate displacement, with a premium vinylester resin used throughout. The hull bottom is cored with Airex, which has excellent impact-resistant properties, and the hull sides are cored with Core-Cell, a more rigid foam formulated to withstand the heat of a dark-colored hull exposed to sunlight. All cores are vacuum bagged to the outer skin to ensure a sound skin-to-core bond. Decks are cored with Divinycell, which is stiff and resistant to solar heat. The keel and chines are solid fiberglass, with reinforcements at the bottom and sides overlapping in these high-stress areas. A painter's keel projects below the hull 2 in. to make painting easier, and it adds strength to the hull as well as directional stability when running at speed.
