The trimaran’s very favourable weight/power ratio makes it possible to sail from the first few breezes.
The leeward float participates in the anti-drift plane and allows for efficient close-hauled edges.
The trimaran sails comfortably thanks to its low angle of heel.

Testimonie Elohim aboard NEEL 45 :
« …This boat handles like a motorbike. Everything is simple and clear. The mainsail can be hoisted without a winch. The load on the rigging and lines is minor in comparison to a catamaran of the same size. .. »
