That’s what Southern France’s Outremer Catamarans is aiming to do if the Court accepts their $500,000 bid for the North Carolina company’s molds, hulls, marketing lists, trendy swag, and quite possibly the G4 Timbalero. Meanwhile, our old friends and the co-designers of the G4, Schickler Tagliapetra, have already moved on to develop a ‘baby G4’ under the Stiletto name.
Our Senior Editor says Outremer CEO Xavier Desmarest is the real deal. “This guy oozes passion for the sport, has a refreshing and powerful concept of loyalty to his customers,” said Mr. Clean, who spent a couple of hours at the Outremer factory back in 2013. “He seems to understand the ‘business of high performance cruising’ far better than most, which was probably Gunboat’s biggest failing.”
