World premiere of the Aventura 37
World premiere of the AVENTURA 37 at the Cannes Yachting Festival
After some delays due to the pandemic, the French Aventura shipyard has launched its first Aventura 37 in Bizerte, Tunisia and presented it at the Cannes Boat Show 2021 on the Côte d’Azur.
The new Aventura 37 design closes the gap between the Aventura 34 and Aventura 44. With the recently announced Aventura 37, the shipyard is introducing a boat with a hull length of just 10.90 meters. The construction comes from the Lasta Design Studio and shows voluminous hull shapes that taper significantly to the waterline via striking edges, plus strikingly large windows in the freeboard. The position of the rig is conventional in front of the cabin superstructure. This means that the overlapping genoa with hole points on the cabin roof is the standard.

Since 1997 already, every May an annual regatta-weekend, the OUTREMER-Cup takes place at La Grande Motte, on the French Mediterranean coast. A visit there, or even better, active participation offers a good chance to get the OUTREMER virus and latest information about the whole range and latest developments. On this occasion, the OUTREMER owners, who are around, gather for a get together, to compare their catamarans, materials and skills. The different OUTREMER designs, brand new or already thirty years afloat compete in a series of Races organized by the OUTREMER-Yard team and the Yacht Club of La Grande Motte.
At the OUTREMER CUP 2015 (the 30th. anniversary of the OUTREMER Yard) a total number of 16 catamarans between 40` and 59` did compete.
Beneath the sporty competition, the exchange of owner’s experiences and knowledge is the main target on this event. All Races are sailed and counted on real time without any time- correction between the different boat-sizes.
cat sale sailed aboard the OUTREMER 51’ *CURIOUS* that had been handed over to the new owner family from Ukraine, the day before. After three days and six Races, we ended up at 9th. place over all, quite happy for our family crew amongst the most ambitioned French competitors. Some even sank the anchor gear ahead of the start to lose weight and gain performance.
1st. OUTREMER 5X *Addiction * / France
2nd. OUTREMER 45 *Wally Walou * / France
3rd. OUTREMER 51 *Akaroa II* / Australia
We enjoyed the sporting challenge and the strong competition at the OUTREMER Cup 2015. With mild temperatures and light winds of 5-25 knots, sailing was easy and offered pleasure. Aboard our OUTREMER 51 ‘ *CURIOUS* we logged a max speed of 21 knots, tacking against a true wind of 25 – 30 knots.
The excellent sailing performance of the OUTREMER fleet was demonstrated impressively. We enjoyed numerous good encounters at sea and at the yacht club bar and shall be back next year again.
cat sale currently is involved in the building of two new OUTREMER catamarans, one OUTREMER 51 and the first OUTREMER 4X performance. Both under construction to be launched in March 2016.

The Outremer 64 Light named Malisi, an Austrian flagged vessel, arrived in the Azores a few days ago after a passage from Bermuda in the World Cruising Club’s ARC Europe. While underway, Malisi diverted to assist with search efforts for Cheeki Rafiki, a 40 ft yacht returning to the UK after partiipation in the Antigua Race Week. Malisi Skipper Patrick Michel spotted debris in the northern part of the search area in the Atlantic, but the US Coast Guard has since abandoned the search for the four crew members. The overturned hull was sighted and divers found the life raft undeployed in the boat. Thanks to Malisi and approximately 40 other pleasure boats who assisted the US Coast Guard in the search process.

Seaworthy beginners catamaran AVENTURA 33‘:
The AVENTURA shipyard is producing in Tunesa since 2007 under command of Eric Roger. The two currently built in small series catamarans AVENTURA 33 ‘and 43′ were presented in La Grande Motte and test sailed in fresh winds from us.
