Designed by Ceccarelli Yacht Design, Neo 515 fiveonefive is faithful to the original Neo concept, thanks to:

- the all-carbon fiber epoxy infusion construction;
- the hi righting moment;
- the hi % of keel weight;
- the light displacement;
- the generous sail plan.

Neo 515 depending on the owner's choices and options, is:

- a very fast Cruiser that offers incredible high average speeds on crossings and deliveries even when shorthanded and white-sailed;
- a Cruiser-Racer that is very easy to convert from one mode to another by simply adding some sails and changing the cushions to cheaper ones;
- a Full Racer without losing the space and tools needed to live aboard a Non-Full-Ocean-Pro-Crew while maintaining comfort for basic needs (eating, sleeping, going to the bathroom), but at the same time optimizing performance .

Key points are:

- The inverted bow allows a longer waterline and less weight in the front;
- The significant bow bevel, allows a weight saving of 200 kg in the front structure of the boat and better wind flow when sailing upwind. It flows gently into the sides of the aft deck;
- The low, smooth freeboard and long waterline help to:
   - Having a lower center of gravity;
   - increasing righting moment;
   - decreasing pitching for better comfort on waves;
   - increased speed on the water for the yacht's overall length;
- The integrated deck cabin that disappears into the bowsprit provides interior height but minimal surface area to wind and waves.
