The boat

The boat we have chosen is the new Outremer 45 catamaran, both reliable and easy to sail. It was specifically designed for blue water sailing and for families. It will be the first of a new series, launched by Outremer shipyard.

This yard have an excellent reputation and we were taken in by Xavier Demaret and his team at Outremer.

We are glad to participate in launching this new unit.

Its construction at Outremer yachting shipyard began in December 2013 and will last for about 7 months. Here are the necessary 6 steps:

  • Molding (1½ month): putting up cloths and foam, vacuum setting, infusion of half-hulls, nacelle and deck.
  • Assembly (1 month): stratification, putting up bulkheads and daggerboard case, demolding the hull and decking.
  • Interior design (4 months): setting the structure, tanks, panels, furniture and equipment.
  • Installing electric, electronic and hydraulic devices and engines (4 months).
  • Completion (2 months): setting up fittings; painting and decoration.
  • Boat launch (1 month): matting, tests and fine tuning.

We are now eagerly following the works… and it’s fun! Pictured here are the nacelle, the deck and the boat’s half-hulls as they are being infused (January 2014)

Here is the boat upon deflasking (February 2014)!

Early March: assembling begins!

Interior design begins in March, but rooms have already been assigned!
