Leen 56, the first hybrid trimaran has been launched

LEEN 56 by Bernard Nivelt design is an innovative unit that combines hybrid motorization with living comfort, given the volumes that 3 hulls can offer. 

On the main deck, there is a large kitchen, the dining area, and the owner’s cabin. Occupying the trimaran’s entire starboard side, the owner’s cabin features a bed and office on the main deck level, offering panoramic views over the sea.

The bathroom with shower and separate toilet can be reached by a few steps down to the hull’s lower level. Entirely glazed, the wheelhouse, is located at the front of the boat and is accessible by a few steps from the saloon.

The layout of the wheelhouse makes it possible to combine a corner sofa, a TV screen, and a space dedicated to navigation. The navigation station can accommodate two people. A gangway door gives direct access to the deck to facilitate docking, undocking, and mooring maneuvers.

Protected by the high bulwark encircling the deck, the exterior circulation on each side is carried out along covered exterior gangways. The standard layout includes 3 double cabins with shower rooms. The two other double cabins are fitted in the central and port-side hulls.

LEEN 56 can be fitted with additional single-bed cabins and separate shower rooms. In the 6-cabin layout, the LEEN 56 accommodates up to 10 passengers. The quality furniture is designed in light-colored wood and made by quality cabinetmakers. The layout and fixtures of the outdoor areas (cockpit and flybridge) are left to the buyer’s desires.
