Outreamer 50.55 light and standard

I would like to know from experience what difference apart from the beam of 600mm between these two standard and light. I have also noticed that some have dorade ventilation. Not very common on cats. Any opinions on having these?

The light has a smaller cabin. When we were looking at Outremers we preferred the standard.

Cheers,

Re: Outreamer 50.55 light and standard

We have four dorade style vents, two forward and two over the lazerettes. I don't see any problem other than that the forward dorades tend to catch lines when tacking, etc... We have cover plates that we put in place of the lforward dorades when sailing.

Cheers,

Re: Outreamer 50.55 light and standard

We have been cruising with a 50 Standard for nearly 3 years. We sold it a year ago. Great!!! Ultimate sea worthiness and lots of space (but thats rather relative)
The Standard has a much larger bridge deck which we enjoyed a lot with the kids. The light is indeed lighter and the bridge deck is practically the same like the one of the classic Outremer 45. So the Standard offers more comfort due to space and the light is faster.
The dorade ventilation is not the same on all builts. On ours it was a very simple solution - effective, works very well. Its just recommendable to unmount and close the dorades in the front sections when sailing.
If you consider buying one PM me, may be I have some technical hints.
