Jimmy Cornell’s Outremer 4.zero, the first fully electric Outremer, was christened last Friday, in the port of La Grande-Motte. Much of Jimmy’s family – his wife, daughter and son – were present, having travelled from England, to celebrate and prepare for the 80-year-old sailor’s departure.

He was offered several parting gifts on the occasion, including a half-hull of his 4.zero.

Doina Cornell, Jimmy’s daughter, broke the traditional bottle of champagne on the catamaran’s anchor.

Why choose to build this prototype with Jimmy Cornell?


We share a more eco-responsible vision of the nautical world with Jimmy Cornell and it is only natural that we headed towards a joint project to develop the first fully electric Outremer.


The aim of the 4.zero project is to achieve a balance in energy consumption. To do this, we have planned a solar panel and hydrogenation pair, and the 4.zero is currently testing the effectiveness of this system before officially marketing the new model in 2021.
