Neo 430 ROMA is a cruiser/racer development of the previous design  NEO 400 PLUS  and NEO 350.

This design is race oriented for IRC rule orientated both to osshore and inshore races , but can peform well also in ORCi  and PHRF.The dimension overall of 43 feet can be utilized  also in the new  Super 12 Class in Australia. 

This is an all round design both in light and and stronger winds.

The hull shape came from the experience of the Neo 400+ and 350 past designs  refined with CFD analysis  design and enginnering, great attention to the distribution of the volumes  of the canoe body to have a boat always balanced and easy to sail.

The hull is wide with the maximum beam that arrives up to the trasoom to maximize the righting moment from the crew  weight 

CYD compared the previous yachts and their design benefits to discover the latest hull and exterior. This yacht will be an all-rounder sailing well up wind and down wind in any wind conditions.

Below the water line the hull is characterised with narrow low wetted surface  hull shape  and a round section shape with the intention to achive low drag , expecially at low speed. 

Outside the water in her bow, there is plenty of volume to create positive lift for increased performance in downwind and beam reach sailing.

The side of the design has a chine, used previously in other Neo designs by CYD.

This has a structural function and reduces windage.

From the maximum beam to the transom the yacht does not become narrower.

his is adventageous for upwind sailing as the crew can create a higher righting moment with their weight on the rail.

The deck house has a typical Ceccarelli design, as the 350 and 400+, with sleek lines and a full integration of deck to superstructure. 

Internally the Neo 430 ROMA has two options.

One more orientated to racing and will be for the hull 02 actaully in construction for an Australian owner ,  and the other for cruising lifestyle more mediterranean style that will be for the hull 01  for an owner of north Adriatic . 

The yacht is constructed solely from female mould for the hull and deck, laminated and infused with epoxy to maintain strength and stiffness. The construction also conforms to all ISO category A and OSR special regulations.

ROMA has 3 possible configurations for her appendages.

A twin rudder system and lifting keel  that can reduce the draft  to only 1.60 mt.  with the keel up.

The lifting  keel  and the hydraulic  system has been enginnered  and build by Cariboni

This configuration allows the depth to be reduced from -3.00 M to -1.60M which is highly advantegous when mooring in shallower bays around the Adriatic for example.

The  draft of 3.00 Mt. gave an high righting moment that associated to the light dspl and high sail area  will  be a pure  very  fast cruisr that can reach up to 20 knots . 

She can also have another version  with  single spade rudder of high aspect ratio with a fixed keel with a torpedo bulb, built in high strength steel. This option has a draft of -2.85M. The final appendage option is orientated to offshore racing as it is built with twin rudders and the fixed keel and torpedo bulb. 

Three Neo 430 ROMA's are now in construction with twi order in place .

One for the European market and two to be exported globally.

Once again this CYD have completed all naval architecture, engineering, interior and exterior design for this model the concept has been done together with Paolo Semeraro  the boss of  Neo Yachts 

The name  ROME  was chosen by Semeraro  as a tribute to Italy and their legacy in quality design.
