The Neel 43 continues to amaze and to innovate, marrying an elegant and striking design with impressive interior volumes, for a trimaran of this size.

This model boasts all the features that have made its range of predecessors so successful... a trimaran that is both fast and safe, comfortably accommodating up to 10 passengers, yet easily manoeuvrable by a small crew. Its handling at sea, coupled with its performance and comfort levels are outstanding.

When it comes to living space, the Neel 43 is bold and innovative. The sophisticated and refined design of the vast interior and exterior living area ensures a breathtaking panoramic view.

The Neel 43 is equally innovative in its use of materials

The structural elements of the Neel 43 mirror the techniques and materials used in the other models of the range: a vacuum-infused composite sandwich, with carbon fibre reinforcement.

An important feature of Neel-Trimarans is the exclusive use of PVC and PET foams in the sandwich core, as opposed to other multihull manufacturers who use Balsa which, although cheaper, is far more susceptible to water infiltration, thereby affecting the quality of the sandwich core.

Resins and gelcoats have also been improved with a view to limiting styrene emissions.

Neel-Trimarans has confirmed its determined commitment to respecting the environment, with a marked move towards the use of bio-sourced and recyclable materials.

The Neel's godfather is Yannick Bestaven, daring and talented sailor, winner of the Vendée Globe 2020-2021.

Yannick Bestaven: "The whole range of Neel trimarans is superb. The Neel 43, the latest model, of which I am the happy godfather today, has all the assets of its predecessors. A beautiful boat on which it will be good to live, like at home! I can already see myself on board during my next cruises! Thank you to the shipyard and all the production teams. I am very proud to represent your know-how."
