Amaris is hull No. 6 of the Outremer 49 series. She’s an owner’s version layout: the port hull is dedicated entirely to the owner and the starboard hull has two staterooms, one at each end with a head and separate shower stall in a passageway between the staterooms. Décor is tastefully neutral with American cherry wood complimenting white surfaces and off-white upholstery. She has enough options and equipment to comfortably cross oceans and cruise for extended periods of time “off grid” while retaining the simplicity and ease of maintenance that knowledgeable cruisers recognize as critical to a successful cruise. Brand new AB Lammina 10AL RIB in March 2017!
The Barreau-designed Outremer 49 has become the benchmark yacht for couples and families who wish to cruise the world on a performance cruising catamaran. When 95% of the multihull market is filled by poor-sailing charter designs, it’s refreshing to know that a cruising catamaran can sail well while still being a comfortable liveaboard. It takes a good design which includes: daggerboards (for shoal draft, reduced wetted surface, and good windward performance), adequate bridgedeck clearance, a powerful and easily managed sail plan, strong but light construction, and narrow hulls.
