Outer Reef christens 860 cockpit motor yacht Ti Punch at Fort Lauderdale boat show

Outer Reef christens 860 cockpit motor yacht Ti Punch at Fort Lauderdale boat show

Outer Reef Yachts celebrated the debut of its first 26.11m 860 cockpit motor yacht Ti Punch with a christening ceremony during the Fort Lauderdale boat show.

This is the first cockpit motor yacht on Outer Reef Yachts' 86 platform; the builder also has an 860 deluxe bridge motor yacht. The new 860 cockpit motor yacht is now the flagship of the builder's cockpit line, joining the 720 and 630 yachts.

'The owner specifically requested because they do a lot of fishing and scuba diving,' says Mike Schlichtig of Outer Reef Yachts. 'So they wanted a fighting chair and to have storage for six scuba tanks.'

Moving to Outer Reef from a similarly sized Lazzara, the owner was seeking a yacht with greater long-range cruising capabilities in addition to hosting his sporting needs. However, as Sclichtig attests, the owner was quite happy with the interior styling of his Lazzara, and this has inspired the modern interior of Ti Punch, designed by Destry Darr Designs.

'The interior is fairly substantial for us, not something seen on an Outer Reef before,' says Schlichtig. The entirely customised interior is composed of high-gloss walnut and beechwood. The layout has also been customised to feature a more open-space living plan. Typically, the wheelhouse would be separated from the main saloon, but on Ti Punch it is open to the main-deck. If privacy is desired, or to block glare when running at night, a wall can be raised between the pilothouse settee and galley to create a separation.

Up top on the flybridge, the deck is open, but it can be contained with a soft enclosure for protection from the elements and to make use of the flybridge deck air conditioning.
