New outremer model coming


Recommended Posts

It seems that the moved they bridgehouse forward and made it bigger, kind of like Outremer or Seawind 1600. Gone are the typical extra long trampoline nets of outremer.

I hope that will bring down the price's on the used market a little bit.

Wow, didn't catch those pics! :)

But maybe the mast is on the roof, so still kept aft. 

And I hope they also kept the vertical front facing "windows", and didn't go for "more speedy looking" slanted ones.

New instagram post from Outremer :

On the last pic of this post, there is a pic on the screen, looks a bit strange to me, not sure why they raise the solar pv that much on the davits, to avoid the shade from the bimini probably, but the result looks quite "bizzy".

Also it looks like the helm(wheel) will be able to pivot.

The pivoting helm on the Balance 526 is brilliant — and looks very simple and light. If Outremer can implement a pivoting helm as well as Phil Berman has it’ll be awesome.

There is nothing innovative about a pivoting helm. HH used it to good effect before Balance, Alibi before them.

Looks to me that the balance point is a bit more on the "comfort/cruising" side than the 51 (mainsail 104 m2 for the 55, 91 for the 51, displacement 10.9 for the 51 , 13.5 for the 55).

 

Interesting self tacking rail on the roof, tiller dropped (makes sense with these benches)

I'm not a big fan of the very centered nav station

 

And for sure much more comfort oriented than the TS5.

The lines that we see below the "winches block" are the solent/genoa sheets ?

That's a quite complicated "route", they go through 3 blocks ?

And I wonder what will be the arrangement for the spinnakers/code 0 sheets, they will go to the same winches ?

  I have friend that owns a Outremer 51. He sailed it in the 2017/2018 World ARC. I totally fell in love with the boat. With it's ease of handling, layout and  construction. I joined he and his family in several passages around the globe.

  The two things I would change are, a larger solar panel array and a solar powered vent fan over the heads.

  He has a Hydrowatt generator and solar panels wasn't enough to keep the batteries up for navigation and autopilot.

  The solar powered vent for the Head is self explanatory.
