Anyone else unhappy with Neel Trimarans?

Is this the general quality of all Neel Trimarans or was it just a freak of nature one off?

Looks like typical european construction to me! I don't know how these people sleep at night...

Re: Anyone else unhappy with Neel Trimarans?

It's not like this exact video has been beat to death in other threads. Neel built a bad boat, they needed to fix it. So far this has not been my impression of their other boats. But they are new to the fields so long term I have no idea.

But the guy who bought the bad boat, he got hosed.

I looked at one at Annapolis boat show. From superficial POV of a tire kicker I was not impressed with the fit and finish.

Re: Anyone else unhappy with Neel Trimarans?

Hi

I am a neel owner (n18). So far I am very happy with the boat. Because of all the bad talk about the neel Quality I had my boat checked by a profesionel sailor. So far we have not found a significant problem (a couple of minor things that we fixed or improved).

Please advice me of where I have to check to boat to find one of the many mentioned Problems.

thanks
m

Vendor rant, and contrary to our rules.
