Why a Trimaran ?
Because IT JUST MAKE SENSE !
Why a Trimaran is Safer at Sea ?
The width of NEEL trimarans is an important factor for safety on the high seas because it is a guarantee of stability. On a catamaran the maximum righting moment occurs at 12° heeling, as shown on the stability curve. This angle can be reached relatively easily when sailing in strong winds and heavy seas. However, on a trimaran, this maximum righting moment does not occur until 27° heeling, therefore in normal multihull conditions of use, this angle is never reached. For this reason, and thanks to the centered weight distribution, a trimaran is much more stable than a catamaran.
Why a NEEL Trimaran is faster at sea ?
Trimarans are significantly faster than monohulls or catamarans.
The superiority of the trimaran is obvious during upwind sailing, especially due to the rig : on a catamaran, the forestay pulls from the front beam, the mast compresses a central beam and the shrouds pull the two floats supporting the forestay and mast beam: this platform deforms in many directions. Consequently, it is then impossible to have a rigid forestay. On a trimaran, the forestay, mast and mainsail tension are structurally bonded to one strong, longitudinal beam : the main hull.This configuration, as per a monohull, allows for a rigid forestay and good performance up-wind. Performance is also enhanced by the centered weight.
The extra speed of the trimaran is an additional safety factor.
