Neel trimarans

Neel Trimarans – the revolution on three hulls! These modern trimarans are the only genuine alternative to the cruising catamarans. The NEEL originality stems from its “loft-look” design, which brings light, space and comfort.

NEEL TRIMARANS founded and managed by Eric Bruneel, specialises in design and construction of innovative luxury cruising trimarans at their base in La Rochelle where they have access to the best materials, equipment and service suppliers.

NEEL trimarans are built using the best suitable materials and techniques to achieve strong, rigid and light constructions. The hulls, bridgedeck and superstructure are sandwich constructions – fiberglass with PVC foam cores vacuum bonded using Isophthalic Polyester Resin. The interior bulkheads and furniture are also constructed this way and together with collision bulkheads all ensuring that the boats are unsinkable.
The sails and rigging are designed and built locally by multihull specialists and the boats are designed to be easily handled by a small crew.

Neel trimarans have revolutionized the cruising trimaran.

Neel trimarans have revolutionized the cruising trimaran bringing the main accommodation out of the hulls and up on the bridgedeck on one level with the cockpit. The modern and luxurious interior inspired by loft-style apartments works really well.

The performance under both sail and engine is outstanding. On passages one can regularly sail at 10 knots or more, easily achieving 200 nm in 24 hours. The trimaran’s configuration facilitates sustained speed under motor propulsion. The low prismatic coefficient of the central hull means drag is very weak. The side floats are only very lightly in contact with the surface of the water.

NEEL trimarans are certified according to European CE standards by the French Institute for Nautical Certification and Standardisation (ICCN).
