The Neel 47 trimaran is a marvel of a cruising yacht. Having won two awards for the 2020 Cruising Magazines Cruising Boat of the Year as well as 2020 Multihull of the Year award this trimaran is full of innovations. It is a cruising multihull that can be easily operated by an owner couple or even a single sailor due to the fact that all control lines are led back to the cockpit.
The Neel 47 trimaran stems from the design board of famed naval architect Marc Lombard and successfully combines all the benefits of a true blue-water cruising yacht. Safety, Speed and Comfort are fused into an extraordinary modern and timeless design.
Construction is vacuum bagged infused polyester/foam eliminating the risks of osmotic blistering as found on some balsa wood core production catamarans. The boat is characterized by its stately beam (only about 1’ wider than a Lagoon of the same length) which provides the Neel 47 trimaran with her exceptional stability, space and performance. Centered weights and intelligent choices of materials easily provide the boat with 220-mile travel radius in 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 have invented the famous “Cockloon”. It is the social space between the outside cockpit and the bridgedeck salon. The Neel 47 trimaran combines this space perfectly into one huge living platform without a single step. The main master suite is located right on the main deck to stbd. providing unobstructed 270-degree views of the surrounding sea – right from your own bed. Very few catamarans under 60’ can provide this sort of living accommodation. A large U-shaped galley is a chef’s delight and is situated opposite of the forward-facing helm station, which can either seat three or can even be used as a watch berth.
The Neel 47 trimaran is for relaxing and entertaining at sea. This 47’ cruising multihull has 3 social areas of which 2 have facing setees including tables. Helming the Neel 47 trimaran is a joy. Never did a yacht manufacturer combine effortless speeds and helming sensations with so much accommodation volume. The helm position is elevated at the stbd. bulkhead and allows safe maneuvers in all conditions.
The Neel 47 can easily handle kids as well as guest couples. Both outside floats are separately accessible from the cockpit and house a spacious berth as well as a washroom complete with sink, shower and a head. All systems are housed in the Neel 47 trimaran’s deep “basement”. Yes, you heard right – this boat has a basement, complete with optional wine cellar.
