I don't know of any Outremer
here, but I don't think it matters very much at all which manufacturer it is - all cruising cats (or any other cruising boat) can be single
handed pretty much equally, given a reliable autopilot
. Depends on what your concept
All cruising boats with APs are pretty much "no handed" once you get them going. The hard parts
are stopping and starting, changing sails
, reefing, reeling in fish
, etc. - the stuff you would reasonably expect to be harder with fewer hands. Sure, there are specific things that might be easier on any given boat design. I can pick up a mooring
pendant by myself easier than most because of my helm
controls location. Other boats may have their own situational strong points.
This doesn't mean single handing is easy or even safe. I've done it very little - unless you count the time on watch when the Admiral or extra crew are asleep.
