Outer Reef’s latest hull, the 26.3-metre American-designed and Taiwanese-built 860 Deluxbridge, is nearing completion. The all-composite yacht is due to be shipped to Outer Reef’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale early next year for the fit-out.
The project yacht was ordered by a repeat customer, who already owns three other Outer Reef vessels.
The 860 Deluxbridge series offers numerous different characteristics from other ranges. One such difference is the temperature-controlled helm station being relocated to the upper deck, so that the main deck forward is freed up to host a spacious kitchen for cooking and dining.
The accommodation features four guest cabins and crew quarters with heads, lounge and galley. The walk-around skylounge provides additional private dining, entertainment and office areas, while the 860 Deluxbridge is also equipped with a built-in teak swim platform on the aft deck.
On the technical side, she is powered by two 750hp John Deere 6135 engines, three aluminium fuel tanks with a total capacity of 11,356 litres, Trac Zero Speed stabilisers and a pair of 38kw Northern Lights generators. These combine to allow comfortable long-range ocean voyaging.
Upon delivery, the experienced owner intends to cruise along the coasts of North and South America to explore Nova Scotia, Alaska and Mexico.
