The NEEL 51 is a blue water yacht for families, maneuverable with minimal crew and designed with a higher bridge deck clearance to ensure comfort and safety at sea
The NEEL 51 is the first model in the lineup to offer cabins with ensuite washrooms, accessible from the main deck. A tremendous achievement in design and a luxury touch for guest aboard, each float suite is impressively spacious and accommodating. A sliding door provides a private living area for guests spanning the entire float with a semi-island double bed beside a large waterline window, an ensuite head with separate shower, wash closet and counter space for two. Hanging lockers afford plenty of storage space, while opening hatches provide ample natural light and ventilation.
The center hull engine bay is offers unparalleled space for access to the engine and ship systems, along with ample storage of additional equipment. Access is through a single large hatch in the saloon. Once opened, you’ll be amazed by the massive bay, spanning the width of the main hull. Here, all plumbing, Mastervolt systems, fuel and water tanks, battery banks, watermaker, generator, and everything else you could desire resides in a single, protected, large organized space, away from the living areas. The days of sleeping directly under a house battery bank, fuel tanks or sharing cabin space with heating furnaces and pumps are officially over with a NEEL Trimaran. Just aft of the engine cabin space is the engine room, sealed by a watertight bulkhead door. Inside, the engine stands high and in the center of the space, providing excellent visibility and maneuverability around the entire power plant.

On the maindeck of the NEEL 51, comfort aboard and liveability are the names of the game. Starting forward, a U-shaped galley with 14 deep drawers, panoramic views and ample counterspace makes this location an absolute pleasure to cook for the entire crew. Moving aft from the galley, a sectional lounge with multipurpose table and media center indoors joins the cockpit dining table to create an expansive social setting for up to 12. A large midship cabin is also located on the maindeck, just aft of the forward facing chart table and includes a massive starboard facing panoramic window, hanging closets and an ensuite washroom equipped with a freshwater toilet, standing shower, sink and vanity.
