, of Newport Beach, California, has constructed a semi-custom offshore cruising yacht, the Outbound 44. The yacht is designed to be able to either be customized or exchanged at the system or component level. The late Carl Schumacher designed the Outbound 44. Schumacher blended the moderate displacement design with an underbody developed for rapid travel and harsh weather conditions. The Hampton Boatbuilding Company, located near Shanghai, China, was Outbound’s selection to manufacture the yacht. Outbound chose to use the hand laying method to construct its fiberglass hull of moderate displacement. The long fin keel of the yacht is molded along with the hull in place of using keel bolts. The Outbound 44 is built in accordance with the American Boat and Yacht Council regulations.
