The Ultimate Blue-water Cruising Catamaran

Outremer [utʀ əmε: ʀ] draws its origins from blue-water cruising and etymologically from the color Outremer, a deep shade of blue reminiscent of its native coast, the Mediterranean Sea.

Over the past 37 years, Outremer has built catamarans of industry leading quality, designed for performance, to ensure your peace of mind and comfort onboard, whether for short distance cruising or for sailing around the world.

OUTREMER 45 LOUSTIC, NANCY & FREDERIC
Catamarans are often seen as floating caravans. And then we tried the Outremer and realized it wasn't necessarily the case. The seaworthiness and performance ... It sails! So we decided rather quickly [for an Outremer].
OUTREMER 4X NO LIMIT, LOICK PEYRON
We feel that work has been done on the weight. [...] Lightness is not only a question of performance but of safety on these boats.
OUTREMER 4X, JEAN-PIERRE BALMES – BACK FROM THE ROUTE DU RHUM
I took part in the Route du Rhum on the Outremer 4X, a boat that I have recommended to many families and I wanted to show them that I meant what I was saying, that you can really sail with it!
OUTREMER 51 EIMATA VAA, FLORENCE & PHILIPPE
We needed a seaworthy boat, that would sail upwind with ease, that was fast and sturdy... We found all of this in our Outremer.
OUTREMER 51 KOKO KIWI, MARK
Outremer successfully created a boat that encompasses speed, simplicity, luxury and safety. For us this relates to good times, beautiful places and great family experiences.
OUTREMER 51 MOBY, BENEDICTE & LOÏC
It was the boat that really offered the best compromise between performance, comfort and speed for a rather demanding program of a round-the-world trip in two and a half years.
OUTREMER 51 TWO CANOES, RICHARD
It's not just any company that would tell you: cut back because it's better for you. And immediately it hooked me.

Unseasonable crossings — PART 02

When I look back on the crossing on La Vagabonde, my brain does a remarkably clever thing. It filters out most of the hard stuff: the lightning, the stress, the responsibility, the social media flurry, the awkward moments between the diverse characters. What’s left, is memories of day 12 onwards…

Unseasonable Crossings — PART 01

The Vendee Globe has got to be the toughest solo sporting event there is. It’s a single handed round the world sailing race without stops or assistance. Having raced in the Southern Ocean myself – it is a desolate place in spirit, in physicality, and in the mental state you find yourself in.

Sailing upwind on Outremer 45 Sailing La Vagabonde — PART 02

Sailing is a sensual sport. When you sail, you must work together with nature. You must ride her waves and helm in time with her flow, easing and tightening and swaying with her rhythm.

Let’s invent sustainable boating together

The ambition at Outremer has always been to create innovative sailboats, convinced that sailing was, and still is, the most natural and respectful practice.

At a time when environmental and societal issues are at the heart of concerns, we have a determined ambition: to invent sustainable boating.
