Outremer 49 catamaran : ‘Casting out 49s’
Outremer 49 catamaran : Silhouette and underwater lines
A cross between the TS50 and the Absolu, the Outremer 49 catamaran has its own personality and could not be confused with any other catamaran of the same size. Unfortunately, visitors to the Cannes Boat Show weren’t able to appreciate the original design of the hulls (as the boats were very tightly packed on the pontoon); but they present some very interesting characteristics. The tall, slim, slightly flared bows overhang a forefoot which is only just immersed; the hulls’ progressive gain in volume, combined with the lack of ‘belly’ and flattened aft sections, generate tight lines. This fast, ocean-going multihull’s natural attitude is intentionally a little ‘tail down’; the wedge-shaped counter will help planing and the well-raised bows will ensure safety in rough or confused seas.
The coachroof extension is limited, which helps weight distribution. The characteristic silhouette of the Outremer 49 catamaran is well-proportioned; the sail plan elevation adheres deliberately to what we expect from a comfortable, but sporty Outremer catamaran.
