Visit to NEEL

La Rochelle, France. We are back from a visit to the NEEL Headquarters where The NEEL 47 – Hull numbers 1, 2 and 3 are on the production line. Sea trials are slated for the end of February. Looks like another successful design from NEEL is in the works. See the 47 for yourself at the 2019 Annapolis Sailboat Show!

Announcing the NEEL 47

Hot on the heels of being awarded 2018 European Sail Boat of the Year for its 51-foot tri, NEEL Trimarans has announced its latest model, the NEEL 47.

Designed by Marc Lombard, the NEEL 47 will be launched in early 2019 with an exciting new sporty design. Filling the gap between the shipyard’s acclaimed NEEL 45 and NEEL 51, the new 47 trimaran has optimised ergonomics and a reconceptualised interior layout to enhance on-board liveability and offshore performance.
