The first NEEL 45 trimaran in the southern hemisphere is due to arrive in Brisbane in May.

Six orders have already been received for the NEEL 45 since its official launch in late 2011, and Australia will receive the fourth hull constructed for the model.

The trimaran will be a stock boat for Multihull Solutions who are NEEL Trimaran’s exclusive Australian and New Zealand importer and distributor.

It will be on display at all major Australian and New Zealand boat shows and will be available for pre-arranged sea trials and inspections.

Designed and constructed after NEEL’s three decades of sailing and ship building experience, the new NEEL 45 is a fast cruising trimaran which is easy to handle, comfortable and built according to the highest safety standards.

In keeping with its predecessor, the NEEL 50, the new NEEL 45 features an innovative design with excellent use of space and light, a modern design, a loft look and generous storage areas.

The NEEL 45 has retained the a high level of privacy in its cabins, as well as independence for owner and crew who have well-separated accommodation.

The new trimaran features a unique layout, which distinguishes it from traditional trimarans. Its two wings are connected by the living area which accommodates the galley, spacious saloon and cockpit.

The NEEL 45 has been designed with an emphasis on innovation to improve overall performance. The reversed bows reduce pitching and maximise the trimaran’s waterline length.

The NEEL 45 is available in two versions. The Owner’s Version is designed as a liveaboard, cruising trimaran that comprises an owner’s suite with private bathroom, plus two double bedrooms, additional bathroom and extensive storage capacity. The Charter Version can accommodate 12 guests.
