About Callisto

Callisto is an Outbound 46 sailboat. She was built in Xiamen, China by the Han Sheng boatyard, under the supervision of Outbound Yachts owner Phil Lambert.

The Outbound 44/46 was designed by the late Carl Schumacher to be a fast, comfortable cruising sailboat. Some dimensions:

Length Overall: 46' 4"
Beam: 13' 6"
Draft 6' 6"
Displacement: ca. 28,000 lbs
Ballast: 10,000 lbs

We took delivery in July, 2009 and immediately set off on a shakedown cruise for three weeks on Chesapeake Bay. We sailed her from Virginia to the British Virgin Islands in 2010, and she has been in the Caribbean ever since.
