Have a look at this one:

Aluminum Carbon boat with enough space for cruising. Interesting concept. Not as fast as the 28 but maybe fast enough at a very interesting price.

Hi Paulo,

I hadn´t seen that one yet! Very interesting concept, but for me I think a bit to slow. It weighs more than the DF 32 but has less sail area than the 28...

I still have my motorboat, it´s not a good market for selling at the time. Hey, if your interested I´ll make you a good deal!!

Sirius 32

Hi Lazlo,

Sirius is not a common boat. It is a unique boat and it is made in Germany on a small familiar Shipyard. It is a family shipyard and a family tradition (first the father, now the son).

They sell boats to everywhere, including Japan and they have ways of making the warranty of their boats to be true even without a dealer. They are expensive boats but if money is not a problem and that’s the boat you want the best advice I can get you is to go to the Dusseldorf boat show and have a talk with them. I mean, not dealers but the builders father and the son. Who knows if they are not interested in having the boat on display on one of the major American boat shows (west coast) and pay most of the expenses to ship the boat.

Now in what regards to be nice not to fly to Europe, particularly to the Dusseldorf boat show, I cannot agree with you:

Dusseldorf is a nice city with many other nice cities at a short distance by train, the beer is great and the boat show is just awesome.

Regards

Paulo

Yes, I will.

Here the official website of this boat - still online even though it is out of production. The 55 and 55 model are nearly identical, just the stern is extended for the longer one. The "light" version is less wide and has a smaller saloon.

Outremer Catamaran - Our Catamarans - Outremer 55 standard

Hehe, funny, I discovered your blog four hours ago

I tried to comment but don´t have a google account nor any of the other required account types. So let me put the comments here:

Sweeeet boat! Please post some more videos and also write some comments on boatspeed/windspeed/windangle/sailsetup. Would be really interesting to here more about this boat and its performance.

I´m still waiting for Eric to comment on the boatspeed etc from his boat, allways good to have info from two sources!

Cheers!

//Mr W

There are direct flights from US to Dusseldorf with some german airlines, like Lufthansa and AirBerlin. And some north american airlines do so.

I will be there next year...all right I have already a boat but still love sailboats and Dusseldorf is the place to have a look at new trends on sailboats. I know the place and it is a great place with great beer and food, so guys if you want to join me, first round of beer is on me

I am still discovering my boat.While I am waiting for my set of kevlar sails to be repaired (after having waisted them in a blow) I have only a small dracon jib (all right I have also a big geenaker but am afraid to host it for the first time with the only help of my wife, I am waiting for my kids for the first try). But with that small jib I still sail without the engine and today I have done 7,5k with 18/20K wind at 40 degrees (all apparent wind).

I find out that the boat sails very well with just a small front sail (now have to convince my wife that the main sail is also needed). With 10k wind and just that little sail the boat can make over 5K). I never thought I could have fun with the boat handicapped to just that small sail, but I have not only had fun as I have learned a lot.

By the way while I am waiting for the repaired sails, I have been sailing in a fantastic placed, an interior sea that you enter in Preveza, the Amvrakikos golf: Incredible place, no tourism, almost no sailboats and the wind works like a clock: From 2 to 7 PM 18 to 20 K , always W/NW, after that no real wind till 2 PM next day. Just perfect for me with some small nice places with very nice prices and with very few tourists. I am sending this from one of them, Vonitsa : a great meal with wine, coffee and ouzo included by 10 euros.

This contrasts greatly with Croatia: not only you don't pay the anchorages as, several times, mine was the only boat there and when there were more boats (never more than three) they were separeted by 300m, at least. Nice

Regards

Paulo

Careful now Paulo, there are a lot of people reading this thread!

Thank you for starting and maintaining this thread. It is most enjoyable and I am learning something new every time I stop by. Many of us already have a perfectly good boat, but we are still allowed some "window shopping." I must admit that there are many tempting choices out there, so one never knows what might happen in the future.

Enjoy your sailing!
