I frankly am not sure what the all up cost of a second Paradox would be. It's for sale
for $1.3 million. My guess is that it is specced out a lot like the $1.6 Rapido, but really don't know. The major difference is that paradox is all carbon while these are glass/carbon.
I am kind of with you about the Neel. While I get the concept
, it just feels like they gave up most of what makes a trimaran
desirable to get the living space. Maybe I am wrong, but I am guessing the Neel is no faster than a performance cat, with far less living space.
Hull number 2 is sold and is definitely under construction at the factory in Vietnam
. Honesty in advertising is the only reason we say that the boat is not all carbon . In fact the only glass is only used on the outer hull skins for main hull and floats . This was done to comply with CE cat A requirements . All other structural components of the boat are carbon . Beams , daggerboard case , rudder
, daggerboard , chain plate
bulkheads are all prepreg cured in a Autoclave , not sure but guessing way more high tech than Any cruising boat short of Holland
Composites G4 on the market .
All furniture is foam cored with thin veneers to keep it light .
We have female molds for all components and it is a full on production boat designed to appeal to experienced sailors from both monohull
and catamarans that want a cruising boat that really can sail most places in comfort at higher than average speeds .
Hull number 1 is well equipped and ready for long distance cruising , has all std features plus all options plus some listed on our web site including a high modulus Southern Spars rotating mast
, North 3 Di sails
