Innovative trimaran builder NEEL has produced an exciting new model, the NEEL 45, which has been greeted with enthusiasm from international multihull enthusiasts.

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

In keeping with its predecessor, the NEEL 50, the new trimaran is distinguished by its original design, particularly its use of space and light, modern design, loft look, storage areas, speed, safety and comfort at sea.

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

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

The NEEL 45 is available in two versions. The Owner’s Version is a remarkable liveaboard or cruising trimaran that comprises a sleek Owner’s cabin with private bathroom plus two double bedrooms, additional bathroom and extensive storage capacity. The Charter Version can accommodate 12 guests in five cabins.

Multihull Solutions is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand importer and distributor of NEEL Trimarans. The company is also the exclusive distributor of many of the world’s leading brands including Fountaine Pajot, Trawler power catamarans, Sunreef Yachts, Journey and Catana Catamarans, ensuring it has the range and experience to offer clients the perfect multihull to suit their budget and requirements.
