An eye-catching new model
You might have noticed, our new Outremer 55 is undergoing a number of sea trials and despite these challenging times, the 55’ continues to attract the media’s attention. Nearby the French Frioul Islands and along the Spanish coast, she passed the first journalists’ sea trials with glowing results.
See for yourself with these very flattering press cuttings:
After spending two days testing the Outremer 55 in preview, the term “sweet-spot” was what came to mind – a term used in marketing to describe an effective positioning. There is no universal multihull, let alone a perfect one. Each model is designed to fit a program, to meet the sailors that fit it. The Outremer 55 is exactly where she promised to be, stood a little apart from the crowd, faithful to her roots. She is the heir to a long line of high-performance, seaworthy catamarans, whose modern expression does not mean forgoing comfort. The options chosen will work like photo enhancing software, accentuating here or there her qualities of a performer or great cruiser. In every respect, the Outremer 55 is a superb boat – she will even silence those who would claim that a multihull can’t be beautiful. – Multicoque Mag
This large boat immediately found its audience since 25 units have already been sold. Which means that you can dream of cruising and speed at the same time. The Outremer 55 makes it possible to reach double-digit average speeds without trying hard and without scaring oneself either. Its size and autonomy will allow real comfort at anchor and during crossings. Let’s add that the boat’s style and ergonomics are particularly well thought out. – French article in Voiles & Voiliers

Inauguration of the first fully electric Outremer
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.
