The finesse of the steering is a feature highly appreciated by owners of NEEL Trimarans, especially those who have previous experience on high-performance monohulls.
This feeling at the helm is a combination of several factors:
– A single wheel steering system connected to a single rudder by spectra lines.
– The most direct line path possible to optimize the sensations at the helm.
– The rudder stock on self-aligning bearings
– A deep rudder under the central hull contributes to the anti-drift surface and allows an efficient tacking.
