It ‘a fascinating challenge to be part on this new product for the Ceccarelli Yacht Design.
For Giovanni Ceccarelli is interesting and full of energy to work for Neo Yacht a new brand with behind it a great sailor.
The hull was designed by making extensive use of CFD CYD working together with a former colleague of the 2007 America’s Cup of +39 using the same technology, the shape of the hull are very innovative paritre rovrescia from the bow, the large volume in the bow area and after careful research it was decided to eliminate the edge into the sides.
In addition to performance, the designer looked to the tonnage Orci and IRC.
For Orci has worked extensively on the stern that has been the subject of study in 2013 Orci penalizing large transom and low on the water plane.
A hull that will be performing with light wind in strong winds due to his composite shape.
The appendages have a high aspect ratio, with laminar profiles design optimized for performance of the project.
The design of the deck and its windows, bow down and sheer line make it very innovative sheerline a real NEO.
Laminations and structures are calculated according to ISO attiuali and checks and direct calculations with use of FEM has been chosen as a building material to use carbon hull and deck structures, hull and deck lamination will be pre preg.
The first sailing test in Bari early January 2014 , gave us good results and nice feeling.
