2001 Outremer 45 ‘Capella’

NZ $545,000 (excluding NZ taxes)

The Outremer 45 is an icon of fast cruising catamarans.

Capella is a 2001 Outremer 45 Danson design. The Outremer 45 is an icon of fast cruising catamarans. It is one of the few Danson designed performance Outremer catamarans available that offers comfortable cruising at exhilarating and extremely efficient speeds.

Part of her heritage is in the sleek and sexy signature styling that exudes speed and grace even at anchor. She is a sailors catamaran, forgoing the weight of unnecessary lavish luxuries, for the performance of a nimble and seafaring catamaran in all conditions.

Capella has the comforts for extended, self contained cruising including, twin diesels, generator, solar, water maker, major refit completed, and just returned from South Pacific season, ready to go again.

Capella is the performance version of this much admired design. She has the performance keels that allow her to be beached while offering far better performance, without the need for large moving centreboards and appreciably more speed and pointing than the usual stub keels.

She has a range of other customisations that set her apart from even other Outremers making her stronger, and smoother seakeeping.

  • Large customised opening windows, three in the hull give lots of extra light and fantastic ventilation.
  • The seagull striker and front beam has been reinforced to give far greater lateral strength.
  • Refreshed Carbon mainsail by Evolution.
  • Extended transoms steps by 700mm giver a large useable platform and better sea keeping.

Capella is well proven having just returned from a season in Fiji. She has provided the experience of a lifetime for her current owners who were cruising the South Pacific with their two young children. Capella is now ready to be the guiding star in her next adventure for a discerning sailor. She is lying in Mangawhai. Excluding NZ taxes.
