The NEEL-TRIMARANS Range consist of the award-winning NEEL 43, NEEL 47, the new NEEL 52 and NEEL 65 trimarans. They are highly innovative cruising multihulls that dare us to rethink the merits of catamarans and monohulls. These unique cruising yachts seem to take the best features of monohulls as well as catamarans – to create safe, comfortable and performance-oriented cruising machines.
NEEL trimarans stem from the design board of famed naval architects Joubert-Nivelt as well as Marc Lombard. They successfully combine all the benefits of a true blue-water cruising yacht. Safety, Speed and Comfort are fused into an extraordinary modern and timeless design.
NEEL-TRIMARANS are expertly constructed open ocean cruising yachts with dozens of circumnavigations under their belt. Construction is carbon re-enforcements in high load areas, vacuum bagged infused polyester/foam eliminating the risks of osmotic blistering as found on some balsa wood core production catamarans. NEEL-TRIMARANS are characterized by their wide beam (only about 1’ wider than a typical catamaran of the same length) which provides them with exceptional stability, space and performance. Centered weights and intelligent choices of materials easily provide NEELs with a 220-mile travel radius within a 24-hour period. This speed translates both into fun at the helm as well as safety, by reducing exposure time at sea.
NEEL TRIMARANS are presently the only production multihull on the market with full “basements”. These spaces are under the main deck house important machinery, systems and engine. Owners of NEEL’s have standing headroom and even install full workshops and store heavy items such as batteries and tanks there. Thanks to this innovation all the weights are centered and low in the boat. Consequently this contributes greatly to safety and comfort. Sailors can easily access the systems for maintenance, considerably aiding their reliability. Also the weight centering greatly enhances the boats’ sailing dynamics by easing the strains on the structure and making the ride more comfortable and safer.
These unique trimarans are for relaxing and entertaining at sea. These cruising multihulls have multiple social areas. Helming NEEL-TRIMARANS is a joy. Never did a yacht manufacturer combine effortless speeds and helming sensations with so much accommodation volume. Steering is direct, thanks to the use of Kevlar cables. The helm position is elevated at the stbd. bulkhead or even the flybridge as on the NEEL 65 and allows safe maneuvers in all conditions.
What is the most unique feature of NEEL Trimarans?:
NEEL-TRIMARANS are the inventors of the famous “Cockloon”. It is the social space between the outside cockpit and the bridgedeck salon. They combine this space perfectly into one huge living platform without a single step. On the NEEL 43, 47, 52 and 65 the main master suite is located right on the main deck to stbd. This offers unobstructed 270-degree views of the surrounding sea – right from your own bed. Very few catamarans under 60’ provide this sort of living accommodation.
