It is not often that a boat like this 2016 Neel 45 Panda Rosso comes on the market. The Neel 45 was based on an innovative performance sailing design that utilizing modern light-weight construction techniques and materials to create a whole new demographic in the cruising boat market. The result is a very high-quality multihull that offers spacious accommodations, modern amenities, and a fantastic layout all in one sleek package. With her versatile suit of sails and efficient hull design, she will out sail nearly all other cruising boats in her size range. Its not hard to see why the Neel 45 has garnered such a cult following since its initial introduction. Her ICW friendly rig height also ensures access to numerous anchorages that are not accessible to other cruising boats.

Some of the defining features of the Neel trimaran design are the 68 interior headroom, the large and easily accessible tech space / engine room, and the deck level cabins. The sail controls are led to the bulkhead mounted helm next to the cockpit. This position offers fantastic visibility and good protection without cutting the skipper off from socializing with the rest of the crew lounging in the cockpit.

Panda Rosso features a 3 cabin layout with double berths in each cabin. The master cabin with ensuite head and shower is located to port and a comparable berth is located to starboard. The guest head and shower is located next to the sliding doors and is easily accessible from the salon or cockpit. The cockpit is split between sink ok one side and oven / cooktop on the other with ample counter space. The salon offers plenty of seating around a large table and a fantastic forward facing nav station with chair. There is a V-berth with a double bunk forward of the salon.

Andrew grew up sailing his father’s Hobie Cat and transitioned that into a long career as a USCG licensed captain in the yachting industry. Working his way up from his college years as a sailing instructor to a position as a private yacht captain aboard a Gunboat 57, he brings with him a comprehensive knowledge of catamarans and the cruising life. His career has taken him from his home waters of Cape Fear, through the waters of the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Central, South American, and the South Pacific Islands. During that time, he worked as a charter yacht captain and a professional delivery skipper specializing in catamarans. Andrew has operated a wide variety of multihulls, everything from old Lagoons to brand new Outremers and most things in between. This experience has given him an extensive first-hand knowledge of many different makes and models and a solid understanding of their various strengths and weaknesses.
