A FORCE TO BE reckoned with, the Outback 50 stands alone! Designed specifically for outdoor living, she revolutionizes recreational yachting and truly embodies comfort, elegance, versatility, and efficiency. This forward-thinking concept came to a reality by the collaboration of three talented, like minded individuals, Michael Peters, Andrew Cilla and John Olsen.
Michael Peters is the designer and a legend in the Yachting world, known for his stunning yacht designs for the elite and private owners as well as brands Hinkley, Bertram, and Viking to build production boats witha class-A reputation of style, performance, and quality. Michael built his first boat at age fourteen, the 8-ft sailing dinghy. He later went on to be awarded a U.S. patent for a "hydroplane boat" with a continuous chine and ventilated transverse step and in 1981 he established Michael Peters Yacht Design in Sarasota, Florida. Michael specialized in designing high-speed boats and his designs have won hundreds of worldwide winds. Continuously expanding his focus, adding production boats and yachts to his expertise and accourding to Outback Yachts, Michael and his firm have produced over 100 designs which have led to the building of more than 30,000 custom and production boats.
Not your father's Trawler! The Outback yacht 56 feet in length with more deck space than any yacht in her class offering flexibility to fish, dive, play or simply relax and dine on deck. An open transom and standard removable securtiy railing along with an optional roll-on feature allow yachters to bring a dinghy or flats boat, RIB, jet skis, kayaks, or other water sports gear safely on board and stow them securely underway. Elegant, modest interior extends naturally from the aft deck, opens expansive views, and emphasizes casual onboard living. Michael Peters describes the Outback 50 as stand-alone boat geared toward a more active boater, an easy transition for someone that comes from a sailing background or someone looking for more contemporary functional features than other power boats have to offer.
Overall, I can't say enough about the Outback 50. I have been on a lot of boats and I always find something that "if it were mind", I would change. Over a couple days, I walked this yacht up and down, back, and forth and I couldn't find one single thing that I would do differently and honestly that says A LOT! I have never even considered living aboard any boat but after spending time on the Outback 50, I wanted to go home, eliminate my possessions, pack my bag, grab my dog, and move onboard! It is the ideal "Dream Boat"!
