Characteristics

Innovations that make life easier

Tilting helms to combine steering pleasure, visibility and perfect protection from the elements. Whether you want to enjoy the view of the water and your sails, comfortably installed on the double bench seat, or protected from the elements in the cockpit, you keep perfect control of the boat. Comfortable seating on each side, standing supports in the middle position, or even sitting sheltered in the cockpit, you’re sure to need thousands of miles to decide on your favorite helm position! To each his own…

Easy movement and unobstructed views

With its wide saloon opening on the cockpit, its flush floor and its bay windows disappearing completely behind the coachroof bulkhead, the Outremer 55 has been designed to ensure ergonomic continuity of space and make moving around on board easier.

The 360° view from the saloon and cockpit allows exceptional visibility of the water and the environment, and greatly contributes to comfort on board. From the chart table, of course, but also when cooking or during meals, the forward vision is never interrupted. A crucial factor for a serene cruise!

A central island that can be transformed into a high table

Nothing is more pleasant than preparing a meal, having drinks and entertaining around the island table, which offers an extra sitting area thanks to the fold-up shelf.

Testimonials

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.
OUTREMER 5X KKOUM, KELLY ET JEROME
Very happy owners of a 51 for an Atlantic tour in 2016, we upgraded to a 5X for a longer Pacific journey. As usual, Outremer’s comfort, space, speed, safety, easiness to handle, resolutive after-sales service make life in paradise more paradisiac.

Marijke et Mark

Former owners of a Lagoon 52, this Dutch couple is more than happy to continue the adventure on an Outremer 55, which will be delivered to them in 2021. Looking for comfort and sailing pleasure above all, they have been delighted by the 55.

Do you have any questions?

Yes, as an option but we put an emphasis on the new helm system which guarantees an exceptional steering feel.
Currently only available with diesel propulsion, the Outremer 55 has been designed to accommodate an electric propulsion system as soon as the technologies are complete and reliable.
Working on a new model is also an opportunity to rethink the functionality of the equipment! This brand-new seat can accommodate either two people, one person lying down, or a single person.
