New Outer Reef 860 Deluxebridge yacht under construction
by Chris Jefferies
The latest Outer Reef 860 Deluxebridge motor yacht is taking shape in Taiwan ahead of a planned 2018 delivery date, the yard has revealed.
Built for a repeat client, who has previously owned three other Outer Reef models, this 26.3 metre will stand out from previous 860 Deluxebridge yachts with the addition of a walkaround skylounge and an Opacmare swim platform.
Tracy Hess, director of marketing at Outer Reef Yachts, told Boat International: “The owner of this 860 Deluxbridge Skylounge was previously an owner of one of the largest yacht refit and repair yards in the southeast [of the USA], and has owned numerous yachts up to 38 metres.”
The yard also revealed that the owner plans to cruise along both coasts of North and South America, with a particular focus on exploring Nova Scotia, Alaska and Mexico.
Accommodation is for eight guests split between four cabins, including two doubles, a twin and a full-beam owner’s cabin, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of two.
Power will come from a pair of 750hp John Deere 6135 engines, while the Outer Reef 860 Deluxebridge motor yacht’s long-range credentials are backed up by an impressive fuel capacity for its size of 11,356 litres.
“This yacht, along with all Outer Reef models, is built to be a true globetrotter, universally compatible with all power types and boasting the ability to withstand all weather conditions,” the yard added.
Other projects currently under development at Outer Reef include the Trident series of explorer yachts, which was expanded last year with the introduction of two new models measuring 29.8 metres and 32.3 metres respectively.
