Built to unsinkable European off-shore standards, the Outremer 45 has solid molded FRP hulls and foam-cored decks, with marine plywood used for structural bulkheads and behind loaded deck gear and fittings. The characteristic Outremer look comes from the arched main beams and the up-sweeping through bolted hull/deck joint with its aluminum toe rail. The famed Outremer strength comes from the solid glass work inside, including fully bonded bulkheads, beams, and longitudinal stringers. The builder backs this up with a 10-year full structural warranty. Sealed beams, crash compartments, and three full water-tight bulkheads in each hull should keep the boat afloat through almost any situation.
Outremer is a semi-custom builder and all of the Outremer 45s have slightly different layouts. Aldora is essentially a five-cabin boat, with an aft double in one hull, generous forward singles in both hulls, and two central ‘sea-berth’ cabins, one single and one double. A large head aft in one hull includes a spacious shower, which is mostly used as a pantry. Outremer 45s are all galley-up, with generous forward-facing nav and chart tables and C-shaped or L-shaped settees.
Standard tankage, 110 gallons of water and 70 gallons of fuel, along with 630 amp-hours of AGM batteries, are all located directly amidships behind the daggerboard trunks and under the settee seats. All of the systems are immaculately installed, labeled, and diagrammed. Access is good. Standard maintenance items such as strainers, pumps, valves, fuses and relays are all easily reached.

The standard rig is a typical deck-stepped section with triple spreaders and full diamonds, held up by the headstay and cap shrouds. The running backstays aren’t necessary to keep the mast up, but they provide extra security and help develop some headstay tension when sailing upwind. Like most modern performance cats, the sail power comes from a big (760 square foot) fully battened main; the headsail is a high-aspect 350 square foot solent which self-tacks on a curved track. An optional sprit mounted to the front beam and held down with Kevlar whisker stays carries a 600 square foot roller furled gennaker; owners use this sail so much that consider the sprit should be standard equipment, and in fact, have never seen an Outremer 45 without one. Unlike many cats, the structure is stiff enough that the leeward shrouds are never slack, even sailing hard to weather.
Engine power is provided by two Yanmar 3GM30 diesels powering SD-20 saildrives with 2-bladed folding props. We find that fully loaded, two engines at 2600 rpm will push us along at 7 knots in smooth water. Normally, we motor on one engine at about 5 knots, using ½ gallon per hour, and in our fuel economy mode on long passages, 1/3 gph at 1800 rpm and 4 knots. The engines are housed in isolated and insulated engine rooms under the aft steps. Access and serviceability are outstanding, and the noise, smell, and heat are kept out of the living space.

Sailing and Cruising Performance
Aldora has just completed a transatlantic from Florida to Mallorca, Spain
The Outremer 45 is really a sailor’s catamaran. Easily driven and easily single-handed, we’ve averaged 170 miles per day for most of our passages, in a wide range of conditions. The boat is capable of much higher averages, but we sail conservatively, reefing at night, rarely using a spinnaker, and often sailing under less sail than we could carry simply for comfort and relaxation. Motion at sea is easy and forgiving; we rarely miss a meal. With long fine bows and high forward beams, sailing upwind is fast.
The deck layout and sailing gear is well thought out and arranged. The main reefs and unreefs easily in any conditions and on any point of sail.
Ground tackle is well set up, with the anchor carried in a massive roller just behind the front beam, and the windlass and chain just ahead of the mast. The chain locker is far enough aft to keep the weight away from the bows; we carry 50 meters of 10mm chain backed with 80 meters of ¾” nylon rode, and this fills the locker to the point that it needs to be pushed flat by hand when retrieving it. A secondary roller and a mesh-bottomed compartment forward carry a spare anchor and rode handily.
The cockpit area sails well; the table folds down and becomes part of the floor when it’s not being used. We’ve replaced the original canvas bimini with a lightweight cored glass version, which incorporates a water catchment system. The vented lockers for extra fuel and propane are good.
I spend much of my night watch time in the cockpit with my eyes closed between horizon scans and radar checks. I always feel safe, because I know she can handle whatever comes along.
With over forty examples already built, the Outremer 45 is a real best-seller. Easy to maneuver even shorthanded, it’s the favorite catamaran of sailing families.
A powerful rig can drive the narrow hulled, low displacement catamaran at true wind speed. Yet there is ample accommodation in the Outremer 45′, enabling her to be offered for charter for 8-10 people. However, this boat, with its rugged reliability, seaworthiness and easy handling stands apart as a fast and serious ocean cruiser. Her ability to sail in very light to extreme conditions remains unrivalled. Perfectly designed to allow for swift and reliable long distance adventures, some of her favorite features include:
Whether you set off as a couple or with your family, for one year or more, the Outremer 45 is made for you. The secret of its success? An unrivalled compromise between performance, capacity.
