2022 Neel 51 "Out Of The Woods"

The Neel 51 is a true masterpiece of design and engineering but Out Of The Woods takes it to another level as the best equipped example to ever hit the water.With an extensive list of aftermarket upgrades, she truly realizes the full potential of this already fantastic boat. She sports the desirable 4-cabin layout with the renowned deck level owner's cabin, the performance sailing package, and many custom touches that set her apart from a standard Neel 51.

The current owner purchased "Out Of The Woods" new from Neel and selected practically every factory upgrade available, even convincing them to include some custom options. Upon taking delivery, he spared no expense to further upgrade the boat with equipment that was not offered by the factory. The result is the most exceptional Neel trimaran ever built. This boat is in "better than new" condition and fully equipped to take a family for an off grid cruising adventure to all corners of the world. After sailing the boat across the Atlantic, through the Caribbean, Bahamas and US East Coast - the current owner has decided he'd like to upgrade to an even larger boat for their next adventure across the Pacific.

If you're in the market for a performance cruising multihull, then look no further! You can skip the 2-3 year wait for a new build and the additional time and expense spent getting it dialed in. "Out Of The Woods" has sailed nearly 8000nm and all her kinks have been worked out. Now is your opportunity to purchase a better boat, with better equipment, and no wait time!

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

— Jimmy

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.


— Beverly Cory

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

— JT

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
