Definitely, you’ll need a good designer, racing sailor and someone who can address living onboard customers needs. Then you need to know how to establish production and not in a standard way because that’s the way how others do it. Even with an extraordinary design you won’t sell a ship, or you will not reach profitability. You need several smart men, who are familiar with various aspects of success.
Eric Bruneel, the founder of the , is all of that personas you need in one man. From our point of view, he is one of the most interesting men in sailing business nowadays, without exaggeration. He worked at the development of 26 designs and constructions of multihulls for Fountaine-Pajot SA. Those ships are very popular, much lighter than competitors while keeping the crew in comfort. Bruneel delivered 2000 ships with Fountaine-Pajot during 30 years of his work as export and general manager of the company. In 2003 he built 50’ trimaran called “Trilogic” just for the transatlantic race. He stated new record and won the class.
From production to race, from race to production
After amazing success with trimaran in regattas, Eric Bruneel finished his work for Fountaine-Pajot and started to make his own dream come true. The Neel Trimarans aims to bring you comfort like catamarans never could. Together with good sailing performance and stunning design, it is a player with no doubts. Neel claims that their design is developed in completely another way that concurrent trimaran attempt. Deliberately we talk “attempts” because it seems that Neel Trimarans is the first producer who actually mastered it and delivered on market widely.
