The experience of Chris and his wife cruising the difficult Tasman Sea for 10+ years in their Farr 1220 before moving up to the Outbound 46 gives this testimonial a bit more weight.
We had 6 great weeks cruising Northland NZ. A weather window opened up after the latest tropical cyclone (Winston) dissipated so we cleared out of Opua on Saturday to get in sync with a S>SE>E heading west from NZ. We are currently flying along in 20-28kt SE with seas to match. The OB46 is a great sea boat. We can confidently go below and let her handle the conditions, which she does better than us.
We have sailed almost 3000nm (since delivery Aug 16, 2015) on our new OB46 and have found her a very capable and comfortable boat. She attracts a lot of admiration and attention where ever we go.
We will not display in this years Strictly Sail but we do have a 2015 Outbound 46 available to see in Ft Lauderdale. Please call 949.275.2665 to arrange a private showing.
Our next show will be the Annapolis Spring Boat Show, April 22-24.
Andy and Lisa Batchelor enjoy their first sail on Kinetic. As the founders of Sail Solomans and ASA instructors, Andy and Lisa’s choice of the Outbound 46 speaks volumes. Kinetic will be available for charters and test sails for prospects looking to “Try Before You Buy”.
Our strongest class yet … 8 new Outbound 46 yachts slated for delivery in 2015, offering rare opportunities to see new Outbounds in Oakland, Florida, New England, and Australia. Please contact us to arrange a showing in your area.
