The benchmark for blue water cruising
With a load capacity far greater than that of the Outremer 45, this best-selling family boat from the Outremer range, twice awarded European Yacht of the Year and Boat of the Year in the United States, is the benchmark cruising catamaran for families sailing around the world. Powerful yet easy, with unequaled resilience, it has proven itself on all the seas of the globe.
A perfectly protected and comfortable cockpit
The rigid bimini allows the whole cockpit to be protected and to completely isolate external elements thanks to protective covers. The U-shaped cockpit is particularly well protected, especially for young children. The cockpit table, in two parts, is easy to install, but it can also be transformed into a bed while keeping a table that can be used for meals on the side.
A customizable sail plan
You will enjoy a large choice of sails and rig: self-tacking solent, genoa, staysail, carbon or aluminum mast, fixed or rotating. To better adapt to your tastes and preferences, your sail plan can also be adapted! For sailors who want to favor ease of handling and simplicity, the self-tacking solent and a downwind gennaker will allow you to go to the far side of the world with the greatest of ease. Demanding sailors may prefer a genoa combined with a staysail, a gennaker or even a spinnaker. To lower the center of gravity and further improve performance in light airs, a carbon mast, possibly a rotating mast, is a good choice.
A comfortable payload
The hull is designed to accommodate all the comfort elements needed for blue water cruising. A beautiful tender, a watermaker, a washing machine, of course, but with more than 3 tons of possible payload, you can also add a generator, air conditioning, a dive compressor or heating, and beyond that, bikes, surfboards and paddleboards will keep you busy at stopovers, and children will be able to take all their favorite toys with them…

The Héliès family
A family of passionate sailors from Brittany, with 4 children: the father, an airline pilot and the mother, a company manager, have been sailing all the seas of the globe since 2018. After a round the world adventure onboard their Outremer 51, they have recently switched to a 55′!
Do you have any questions?
What changes has the Outremer 51 undergone?
In 2013, a major survey of owners identified many areas for improvement, including a lengthening of the hulls to 51 feet.
In 2018, the success of the 51 was still undeniable, as evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of miles sailed by many families around the world! The 51 has become the benchmark for blue water cruising catamarans, and has been given a facelift! Additional weight savings, a redesigned interior, more ergonomic and contemporary (upgrading of finishes, redesign of the galley area), and above all a reinvented cockpit living area with greater modularity.
Is sailing on a 51' as easy as on a 45'?
