French boatbuilder NEEl trimarans has unveiled its first NEEL 65, the flagship of its range of cruising trimarans. The first unit of the series will be launched on May 28 this year in La Rochelle.

The NEEL construction site, which has already produced fifteen NEEL 45 units, was recently equipped with a new finishing plant for its trimarans, near the old port of La Rochelle.

NEEL 65

This new model has six double cabins aboard, with six bathrooms.

In addition, the design of NEEL 65 places two cabins on a single level, shared with the living room and a large central open kitchen.

There are two cabins in the central hull and a cabin in each float. Separated areas are built-in for the comfort of guests and crew. 110 square metres (1200 sq ft) surface area in total.

The layout is highly practical, with reserved living areas, along with a generous carrying capacity, and a unique design that meets all the requirements of charter operation with a full crew.

On the deck, the 25sq m cockpit with its outdoor kitchen, exclusive to the NEEL 65, are found alongside the spacious storage bins for leisure equipment (canoeing, windsurfing, paddleboards) in the skirts of the floats for quick and direct access to the sea. There is also a dinghy garage in the central hull.

The NEEL 65 will have its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. This first NEEL 65 will then sail to the Caribbean where it will be operated for charter with crew.
