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.

The Importance of Defining Success

In the Autumn of 2023, I ran a ‘Webinars for Women’ mini-series on transatlantic preparations. The first session was titled: “How to approach transatlantic preparation.” As I zoomed out of the nitty gritty of canned food recipes, spare parts inventories, and preventative sail repair and took a broader look at the framework for a successful crossing, I homed in on what I think the first and most important step is: defining your goal.
