Outer Reef Yachts History
Built in Taiwan but headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Outer Reef Yachts is a well-known builder of semi-custom ocean-going motor yachts and explorer yachts ranging in size from 55 to 115 feet in length. In 1996, Jeff Druek, an American entrepreneur and former merchant marine, couldn’t find a boat that met his specifications, so he drew on his years of experience building homes in the Hamptons and as a commercial fisherman and built his own.
It turned out so well, he partnered with the fourth-generation shipbuilder Shipyard Tania Yacht Company in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the ideal location on the water to sea-trial the vessels. The craftsmen at Tania Yacht Company won him over based on two factors: superior quality and a willingness to do custom work. The yard has collaborated with successful design firm Setzer Yacht Architects for some of its luxury yacht series, including the new Outer Reef Explorer line with models ranging in size from 108 feet up to 115 feet. The yard also offers 15 yacht models in its Trident Series, Motor Yacht series, Cockpit Motor Yacht, Deluxbridge and Explorer series.
The Outer Reef Yachts for sale in the Classic Collection range from 55 to 115 feet and include the following series: Azure, Cockpit, DeluxBridge, Explorer and Motoryacht. There’s no doubt after one look at an Outer Reef motor yacht that the trawlers Jeff Druek used in his fishing business influenced the Outer Reef Yachts collection.
Standout features for each Outer Reef Yachts series include:
Azure 640 (64 foot)
Galley-aft design creates largest outdoor space of any yacht in its class. Flybridge provides a birds-eye view of the bright blue sea. Range of 1,000 miles at 10 knots.
Cockpit 630, 820, 860, 860 (semi-displacement), 880 (63 to 88 feet)

Larger living accommodations, increased galley area and expansive sky lounge that provides precious, protected space for long voyages.
Explorer 108, 115 (92 to 115 feet)

Motor yacht 580, 610, 630, 650, 700/720, 750, 800 (58 to 86 foot)

Trident 530, 620, 720, 3000, 3200 (62 to 110 feet)
It wasn’t long before Outer Reef yacht customers began requesting a new model that had everything previous models had – except with more speed. The sleek, sporty 530 Trident answered the call. The Trident Series now has five models ranging from to 62 to 110 feet (620, 620 Solara, 720, 3000 and 3200).
Whether you refer to your Outer Reef Yacht as a cruising trawler or classic motor yacht doesn’t matter. Just remember, it’s the extras that make all the difference.

- Sophisticated technology: Every Outer Reef Yacht for sale has the latest mechanical systems that fully integrate electronic, navigation and boat information systems.
