Multihull Central: Brent Vaughan introduces Outremer at SCIBS

Outremer Yachts made its Australian debut at the 2014 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show with the iconic Outremer 49 design, previous winner of the European Yacht of the Year and a ground breaking design for the 30 year old French shipyard.

The vessel attracted a lot of attention with visitors on the marina, particularly with owners Mark and Lillian Mellsop-Melssen onboard to tell of their exciting blue water experience. The couple recently sailed from France to New Zealand, and then to Australia to attend SCIBS.

'The boat handles blue water very well, and 240 miles a day is not a big deal with the right weather conditions,' said Mark.

Outremer have established a name for themselves as builders of exceptionally high quality blue water performance catamarans, with nearly 250 boats cruising around the world. Using lightweight composite construction, offset daggerboards design and their famous tiller steering option, the Outremer range appeal to the experienced sailor and those who enjoy the thrill of sailing itself.


The range consists of three new production models, including brand new Outremer 45 due to be launched in July this year, an Outremer 51 which is the recent successor to the 49 and the 59ft Outremer 5X, winner of European Yacht of the Year in 2013 and USA Boat of the Year in 2014.

Outremer are distributed in Australia by Multihull Central based in Sydney, who also distribute the Seawind Catamaran range and Corsair Trimaran range along with a multihull brokerage.

Multihull Central’s Managing Director Brent Vaughan was proud to have the first model ever on show in the southern hemisphere and said: 'Though many Australians have heard of Outremer, most have not had the benefit of stepping onboard or sailing an Outremer as most of them are either cruising, or located in the Northern Hemisphere. SCIBS was the ideal place to launch the brand and we have had plenty of interest and many good leads.'

Vaughan also had on display a new Seawind 1250 and Seawind 1000XL2 catamarans plus a Corsair Dash MK trimaran, all recently imported.
