Designed by Ceccarelli Yacht Design Neo 515 is faithful to the original Neo concept

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.
