Genesis of the LEEN-TRIMARANS project:
NEEL-TRIMARANS has complete faith in the nautical capacity of the trimaran, be it powered by sails or an engine.
It has already proven that, on high seas, there is no safer vessel.
The hydrodynamic resistance of its narrow hulls is extremely low.
Trimaran engines are of moderate size, by necessity, and very economical in fuel. The NEEL 47, for example, consumes less than a litre per nautical mile. Unbeatable!
These vessels also have the advantage of being very stable out at sea. For cruising on high seas, a trimaran with an engine simply makes sense.
This is why NEEL-TRIMARANS decided to develop a motor-powered range too.
