A lighter version
The Outremer 4X is a performance catamaran that makes no compromises on seaworthiness by staying true to its ocean cruising DNA. Its build is optimized for weight gain. The sail plan and deck layout are studied to handle all weather conditions.
While preserving the same level of comfort as the Outremer 45, the Outremer 4X pushes the boundaries of performance on an ocean cruiser. Blue-water cruising as a family or competing in a regatta, the Outremer 4X can do it all!
A cruiser-racer sailplan
Genoa and staysail, the preferred configuration for demanding sailors for their cruising catamaran. To optimize performance in light airs and efficiency in heavy weather, nothing can match the genoa + staysail combination. Of course, you will have to do more maneuvers, manage tacking and set up the removable forestay to set the staysail, but the satisfaction of a well-set sail plan is more than worth the effort!
Structural weight savings
The 4X includes more carbon in the strong structural elements: mast, bulkheads, compression beam, bimini support, etc, but also benefits from additional weight savings: the attention to detail is pushed very far! On the scales, despite having more equipment, the 4X performance catamaran weighs 500 kg less than the 45, and therefore accelerates faster!
The hunt for superfluous weight in the interior
Simple and light-weight fixings, but the same quality of finish as the Outremer 45 blue water catamaran. To lighten the boat, we suggest, for example, replacing the doors and some shelves with fabric structures, closed with zips or even magnets: simple and effective. The storage space is the same, and even if some Corian worktops have been replaced by lighter composite, the same concern for quality can be seen in every detail of this comfortable liveaboard catamaran.
