After a smooth and successful build process, the brand-new 22.45-metre Equiessence was handed to her happy owner recently in Fort Lauderdale. Here, we get a look inside the champagne christening party hosted by Outer Reef Yachts.
Equiessence is the latest 22.45-metre M Class 740 Deluxbridge™ motor yacht from Outer Reef Yachts built in Taiwan and delivered to her owner during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2021. She can reach a maximum speed of 19 knots.
Equiessence is superyacht owner Susan S.’ second build with the American builders.
Taking place during the 2021 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, a traditional champagne ceremony took place to celebrate the completion of the new yacht.
Owner Susan S. invited numerous family, friends and the Outer Reef team to raise a glass to Equiessence. "For months we work side-by-side with the client to ensure their yacht is impeccably tailored to their yachting aspirations. However, handing over a new Outer Reef once she is finalised, as we see it, is only the beginning of a lifelong relationship,” said Outer Reef President and CEO Jeff Druek.
Designed by Outer Reef’s in-house designer, the new long-range cruiser’s interiors feature a seating area in the main saloon with an L-shaped sofa, teak cabinetry and wall panelling and air conditioning. Nearby is a large country-kitchen style galley with a central island, full kitchen amenities and additional seating.
The owner is provided with a full-beam master suite situated midship, a walk-in wardrobe, an en-suite bathroom and a built-in vanity area. Other staterooms include a VIP forward and a final guest room to port – all have en-suites.
The skylounge and sundeck
The owner of Equiessence opted to include a spacious skylounge, creating an air temperature-controlled environment protected from the weather during casual cruising or long-range excursions. The skylounge is often used as a family activity space or an office area.
