The NEEL 47 trimaran has won a major international marine award being voted “Multihull of the Year” in the 40 to 50-foot category.
The remarkable trimaran was declared the winner following nominations by Multihulls World magazine judges and the organisers of the International Multihull Show as well as more than 10,000 public votes.
Filling the gap between the shipyard’s acclaimed NEEL 45 and NEEL 51, the new NEEL 47 has optimised ergonomics and a reconceptualised interior layout to enhance onboard liveability and offshore performance.
Designed by Marc Lombard, the NEEL 47 features an exciting new sporty design while retaining the impressive features of its predecessors: safety, easy centralised manoeuvring, steering finesse, central weight distribution and incomparable performance in all conditions.
NEEL 47 includes the renowned Cockloon® (seamless saloon/cockpit integration), a unique design concept that has significantly contributed to the success of the NEEL 51. The trimaran has also introduced new innovations, including the Full Beam Cockpit®, which affords numerous seating possibilities and a breathtaking 360 view, plus the Antireflex Window® that delivers a dynamic and contemporary aesthetic.
NEEL Trimarans founder and CEO Eric Bruneel said the accolade was a great reward for the shipyard who have been working for 10 years to design and produce quality, innovative and high-performance multihulls.
“It is a great honour and satisfaction for NEEL Trimarans to see its efforts rewarded in this way and its passion for developing new models encouraged,” Eric said.
