neel 43 trimaran


Overview

The latest Lombard-designed NEEL 43 has been added to the range and is even more innovative and impressive, with a marked move towards the use of bio-sourced and recyclable materials.‚Äč

With an average cruising speed of around 10 knots, over 200 nautical miles are easily achievable each 24 hours. Speeds from 15 to 18 knots are often reached when the breeze freshens. Weight centring is managed in order to limit pitching. The centre hull is rockered to facilitate tacking. Floats are of a stretched form to privilege directional stability and advancement of the centre of buoyancy as a function of sail loading. The rigging is directly derived from racing trimarans, thereby achieving full cruising speeds up to twice as fast as conventional cruising yachts. The sail surface area is generous with some 17m2 per tonne.

The trimaran configuration also facilitates sustained speed under motor propulsion. The low prismatic coefficient of the central hull means drag is very weak. The side floats are only very lightly in contact with the surface of the water.
