-I was looking around used sailboats in my range, read up on circumnavigation and living on the hook. As monohull sailor, loving the heeling and the feel of a boat catching wind with the right trim, I was sure I am going for a //cruiser explorer// kind of built so Amel and Garcia came on first, while pricey even used, fantastic boats to go. Watching SV Delos with their Amel made me very interested then. Reading blogs and reviews, watching more videos and looking at different boats and the permanent discussion **mono or cat**, I found interest in catamarans but was not very impressed by most of them. Most of them are spacious **or** performance oriented, so neither of these far out specifications were tempting. While considering all pros and cons on monohulls and catamarans, I found a lot to read about keels falling off and discussions about inspections and used boat's keel surveys. Reading up in sailing magazines, I actually got a little scared of used monohulls.+I was looking around used sailboats in my range, read up on circumnavigation and living on the hook.

 At first I was looking for used Leopards until I stumbled across a small shipyard in the south of France, Outremer. They build performance-cruising catamarans - while that sounds catchy, it is! I was following **La Vagabonde** already but they did not have one yet. Researching **Outremer** some more I found out that there are neither a lot of used boats available nor build-slots before 2020 so I was looking at other manufacturers again. At first I was looking for used Leopards until I stumbled across a small shipyard in the south of France, Outremer.
