OUTREMER YACHTING

June 1984, La Grande Motte in the South of France: Gérard Danson, a young naval architect with the Conati yard, working with of the yard’s best technician, Daniel Cailloux, set about the construction of a performance and seaworthy 40 foot catamaran, aimed at long-distance cruising.  Designer and visionary creator, Gérard Danson, understands that lightness, fine hulls and reduced windage are the key elements which guarantee the marine qualities of a multihull.

A second boat was put into production before the first one was launched: the enthusiasm led to new people joining in the adventure… A name had to be found for this little enterprise, and a business had to be registered.  Fans of the sea and of cruising, and committed to quality workmanship, the partners agreed on a name: the Outremer yard was born!
