NEEL 52 - Boat Review Teaser

Create a notification for "Trimaran"

This new model logically abandons the Joubert/Nivelt stamp, taking on that of Marc Lombard Yacht Design – as with the most recent models from the brand. Forward, the three hulls feature a pronounced inverted bow: an excellent way to increase the waterline length without adding any real weight to the multihull – noting that the displacement is kept under control, at just short of 28,000 pounds. The NEEL 52 is capable of carrying almost 7 tons in cruising mode.

Full test in Multihulls World #193.
