Texas Coast Yachts is pleased to offer you the NEEL 65 trimaran. The NEEL 65 is a lightweight craft with sleek lines and all the sailing qualities of its smaller brother the NEEL 45 – High Performance, a lightness of touch and comfortable sea keeping.
The NEEL innovation is the integration of the two outriggers with the connecting
platform into a unified living space which includes the bridge, a central galley,
and a magnificent panoramic lounge.
The proportions of the trimaran offer a generous roof area, guaranteeing internal volume. The entire volume of the central hull is devoted to systems – the engine, electronics, electrical wiring and plumbing, diesel and water tanks as well as long-term supplies storage.
The large space available in the lazarette and the high headroom
ensure easy access for maintenance of equipment and easy optional installation
of generators, desalinators or air conditioning.
The furniture comes in a choice of several contemporary materials. The floors are
covered with ultra-resistant high-tech woven polyester which comes in a wide range of colours.

Interior by Franck Darnet Design, combining a contemporary feel with sober and refined materials.
The dress code is “Sport Chic”. The elegant saloon cabin offers a wide panoramic view.
The main living area is on the same level as the cabins, allowing functional and fluid movement around the interior
—unique for a cruising multihull craft. The central kitchen is equipped with a convivial bar area.
Two tables (one of which is convertible into a cocktail table) can host up to twelve diners.
The two L-shaped sofas face each other in a highly comfortable volume.
A large chart table is situated in the centre, looking out to sea with panoramic view of 220°.
The owner’s suite is majestic, boasting a large double bed with a view of the horizon through a bay window 2.5 metres wide.
Light fills the space, inviting the outside world into its embrace.
The cabin has a separate toilet and a bathroom with shower looking out to sea through a vertical panel.
Each of the other cabins has its own private bathroom with toilet.
The layout is highly functional with generous, conserved living spaces for maximum hospitality.
The concept is unique, responding to the requirements of crewed charter usage as well as for family cruising, with different versions available. Flexible layout from 3 to 8 cabins. Floats may also be fitted out with 1 cabin per float.
Access to the cockpit is through a wide sliding glass door. The large table accommodates 10 guests comfortably seated on a U-shaped bench. The cockpit has a kitchen with sink, fridge and hotplate. There is a wide sunbathing area to starboard.
The skirt of the central hull platform offers a large swimming deck of 2.50 metres by 2.00 metres equipped with a bathing ladder.
At the aft of the main hull there is a space for storing the dinghy in order to protect it from bad weather while sailing.
At the rear of the side floats, there are stowage bins for leisure facilities (canoes, windsurfing or paddle board gear)
with quick and direct access to the sea by the skirts.
Access to the flybridge is via a staircase from the cockpit, providing extra security.
This communal area of 33 square metres contains both the helm and a table for eight people with a bench convertible into a wide sunbathing zone. The helm groups all systems for manoeuvering such that the comfort of guests is never disturbed.
Each side float has large deck access hatches to extra space which can serve as storage for sails or diving equipment (compressor)
A “High Performance” option is available with a net weight gain of 1.1 tonnes:
Carbon mast with rail and trolleys and harken ball races, carbon canoe boom, textile standing rigging , Dyneema running rigging, pulpit carbon helm wheel, mainsail, genoa and staysail in Hydranet (Spectra / Dacron) Genaker and gennaker fittings, winches Harken Performa, fixtures in composite core.
The NEEL 65 is very easy to operate even with a reduced crew thanks to deck equipment and electric winch control at the helm on the flybridge. Remote control of the engine and bow thruster from the flybridge facilitates docking manoeuvres.
