Outremer 4X voted “European Boat of the Year 2017”
 
Last Saturday, January 21st 2017, Outremer had the honor of receiving the “European Yacht of the Year” trophy for the third time, at the Düsseldorf Boat Show.  Following the Outremer 49 in 2010 and the Outremer 5X in 2012, it’s now the turn of the Outremer 4X, which is the first boat in the new “racing" range to have been voted “European Yacht of the Year 2017” in the multihull category.
 
Outremer 4X, a fusion of pleasure:
  • Developed in association with Loïck Peyron, the Outremer 4X was unveiled at the International Multihull Show at La Grande Motte in the South of France last April.
  • The performance, enjoyment and sensations from sailing this boat are what won over the EYOTY jury during their tests in Cannes last September.“The feel of the helm is comparable to that of a Hobie Cat”, enthused Jochen Rieker, the jury president!
  • The Outremer 4X is the fastest catamaran in her class and offers a perfect combination of performance and on-board comfort while guaranteeing optimum safety.
  • The extensive use of carbon fiber, optimization of the appendages, the deck layout, the rotating mast, and numerous other innovations boost the boat’s performance.
  • The Outremer 4X represents an historic return to the yard’s roots: blue water catamarans capable of racing, winners of many events (Transmed, the OSTAR, or more recently, the ARC 2016 won by the Outremer 5X, Nemo).

The yard’s success story:
  • Known for setting the standard in blue water catamarans, Outremers are excellent cruising boats which inspire confidence and are at the same time, seaworthy, fast and with an unrivalled feel to the helm.
  • A success built on the innovation and integration of the needs and wishes of the customer.
  • A yard which became a forerunner in working with their clients, Outremer offers a range of services for a cruising project: seminars, technical training, ashore and on the water, a caretaker service, technical assistance throughout the world, charter and, soon, e-maintenance. Outremer covers all the key subjects of a cruising project, from the very idea of setting off, right up until your return.
A word from the director, Xavier Desmarest:

“It’s fantastic! With the new generation Outremers, three times entered and three times winners! Once again this year, we were up against the biggest yards, presenting some really interesting boats. We are truly proud to have won over the journalists from eleven countries representing the biggest names in the European press. Earning this distinction is a wonderful recognition of the work carried out by our teams, and it confirms the significance of our aim to build boats which are fun to sail.”
