I read this discussion 4 years ago and we got an Outremer
50 S a year later. Thank you for these posts!
With the 50 S have sailed med, atlantic and pacific with two little kids
. Looking back I can say - yes, an Outremer is really a great boat while speed is not the only remarkable feature: The superb ocean going capabilities have made it easy for us, even on the long passages with kids
, not to focus too much on sailing all the time. Quite often we enjoyed the "sailing like on rails".
For us it was just right to choose the spacious "S" model instead of the more radical "light" or the smaller 45 because for the family
the large saloon
and additional space was very valuable.
We will finish our voyage very soon, settle again and bear this catamaran
in great remembrance.
