NEEL 45 Evolution: design your perfect trimaran

Neel 45 - the origins of Neel Trimarans

The Neel 45 was the first yacht produced by Neel Trimarans. Eric Bruneel invented the Neel Trimarans concept after having conceived his first boat for himself and family.

Why build a trimaran? Simply because it was the fastest and most stable boat. Neel cruising trimarans adventure started in 2012, and has fast been a success! 

The Neel 45, first proper circumnavigation trimaran

Although trimarans always offered speed and seaworthiness, they were not really a cruising vessel for long-term navigation, for  the lack of space and circulation. That's why Eric added a large platform unifying the central hull to both floats, thus creating a vast live-abord area.

Neel 45 innovative concept

The Neel 45 main features soon attracted sailors, who appreciated the specific qualities of this model:

  • excellent performance with 10 knots of average cruising speed,
  • easy to manoeuvre short-handed from helm,
  • unrivaled space on board and a flush platform,
  • superb panoramic view from the saloon and chart table,
  • cabins above sea level with great view facing the ocean,
  • very generous storage, including two long floats and the technical room,
  • a very practical technical area in the main hull.
