Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht

New in Outer Reef’s Classic Series of efficient bluewater cruisers, the Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht (LOA: 61′ 2″; Beam: 17′ 2″) has the familiar lines of the 580 but offers that always-precious extra space.

Enlarged accommodations have room for a master stateroom that extends the full 17-foot beam with a king berth on the centerline and situated in the most comfortable location on board—amidships on the lower deck. Sharing a head forward is a queen cabin at the bow and a portside cabin with side-by-side twin berths instead of bunks.

Adding hull length aft extended the swim platform considerably, making it a practical launching point for all types of water sports. The extra length also increases the hull speed, allowing for a top end of 14 knots, thanks to twin 500-hp John Deere 6090 engines.

A 1,000-gallon fuel tank gives it a 1,200-nautical-mile range at 8 knots. This Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht hits the sweet spot for owner-operators looking for that perfect size for both ease of maneuverability as well as livability. Hull No. 1 is going to liveaboard New Englanders and will be shown at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.
