Outer Reef 24m yacht launched for European client
by Chris Jefferies
American yard Outer Reef has announced the launch of the latest hull in its Outer Reef 800 series. Developed for a European client, the new 24 metre superyacht shares the same underwater profile and superstructure as Ruff Seas and Heartbeat.
The owner had a very specific brief in mind for this project, with equal emphasis placed on gourmet dining, fine wine and music. To this end, Outer Reef has installed a state-of-the-art galley and a concert-hall style entertainment system.
The expansive interiors include headroom in excess of two metres as well as wenge and walnut finished cabinetry to create a spacious and contemporary feel. Guest accommodation is for ten, with a full-beam master stateroom that boasts his and hers en-suites.
Exterior features include sunbathing spaces, an exterior dining area and a fighting chair for deep sea fishing. The flybridge features an upper helm station, teak decks and barbecue, while the boat deck includes storage space for both a tender and a PWC via a fully rotational davit. The Portuguese bridge is designed to give the owner full operational control when the yacht is uncrewed, although there is accommodation for up to four staff.
Designed for long-distance explorer yacht cruising, the Outer Reef 24M recently completed her sea trials and was found to be exceptionally stable in a wide range of sea states, even when the fuel and water tanks were running low.
Outer Reef added that this new arrival will go on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Other projects currently under development at the Florida-based yard include its largest series to date, the 32.3 metre Trident 3200.
