MIAMI 2016: Outer Reef Yachts debuts 86-foot motoryacht

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Outer Reef Yachts debuted its new 860 Deluxbridge motoryacht at Yachts Miami Beach.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Fort Lauderdale-based long-range motoryacht builder Outer Reef Yachts debuted its new 860 Deluxbridge motoryacht at Yachts Miami Beach.

Hull No. 1 of the builder's 550 Trident long-range sport motoryacht, a departure from its larger semicustom motoryachts, was a late arrival at the show on Friday night.

The Trident Series was developed in cooperation with Setzer Yacht Architects and embodies a unique synthesis of stylistic innovation, technology and functionality while applying unique seakeeping attributes that Outer Reef yachts are known for.

“At the start of our journey we anticipated the Trident 550 would be a spectacular yacht, especially in terms of performance and efficiency. No stone was left unturned with the Trident Series — from the latest technology to impeccable use of space, everything on a long-range cruiser’s wish list is at his or her fingertips," Outer Reef Yachts president and CEO Jeff Druek said in a statement.

"The Trident, during extensive sea trials in true bluewater seas, has surpassed all expectations — and we are excited for clients to experience this new yacht at the Yachts Miami show."

As for the 860 Deluxbridge, Druek said high customer demand for the skylounge model has greatly increased because of the appeal of a temperature-controlled upper helm station and protection from the elements during bluewater and long-distance cruising.

The 860 layout features four spacious owner and guest cabins and two crew cabins aft with heads, lounge and galley. Because the upper helm station eliminates the need for a main deck helm station, the galley space below is greatly increased, creating an expansive "country kitchen" for cooking, dining and entertainment.

The spacious living accommodations echo the feel of yachts larger than 100 feet, and the ample skylounge area provides additional, private and protected dining, entertainment and an office area, Druek said.
