Outremer 5X

Boat of the year 2013

Outremer Yachting's flagship, the 5X can reach even greater speeds than its predecessor, the Outremer 5, which has been the market's reference for more than a decade. VPLP, the world leading designer of racing and cruising multihulls were responsible for drawing the plans. Michel Desjoyaux's input, through his Mer Forte consulting office, was the design of a high performance and functional deck layout, suitable for short-handed sailing. Franck Darnet Design, creator of the Outremer 49 and of the entire Allures range, designed the interior. Patrick Le Quément, former director of the Renault design office, was consulted to match the boat design for purpose. The interior is clean, elegant and smart. The furniture is painted white to enhance the beauty of the walnut woodwork. On the owners' version, the port hull suite includes a king size bed (2 x 2 metres), a superb view over the sea and an office. A 4-cabines version and an owners' version with crew cabin are also available. The flagship of the Outremer range has been launched in December 2011.
