The Neel Trimaran's workshop, based in La Rochelle France, will present its first Neel 65, flagship of its range. The first unit of the series will be launched on May 28 this year in La Rochelle.
The Neel 65 inherits all the desired qualities of its predecessors in terms of comfort, sailing characteristics, steering finesse and performance. This model has six double cabins aboard, with six bathrooms.
The design places two cabins on the broad deck level between the hulls, facing outboard. They share with the living room and a large central open kitchen.
There are two cabins downstairs in the central hull and a cabin in each arma float. Separated areas are built-in for the comfort of guests and crew. 110 square metres surface area in total.
The layout is designed to be practical with reserved living areas along with a plenty of carrying capacity and a design that will meet the requirements of charter operation with a full crew. On the deck, the wide cockpit (25m2) with its outdoor kitchen are found alongside spacious storage bins for leisure equipment (canoeing, windsurfing, paddleboards) in the skirts of the floats for quick and direct access to the sea. There is also a dinghy garage in the central hull.
The flybridge is intended to be a convivial space of 21m2 with a double helm and a table for eight. The seating is convertible into sun loungers.
The Neel 65 will have its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from 8 to 13 September. This first Neel 65 will then sail to the Caribbean where it will be operated for charter with crew.
