The President of Outer Reef Yachts, Jeff Druek, has a long maritime history and an extensive background in the building industry. Self employed in the commercial fishing industry on Long Island, New York, he soon became very attuned to boating and the self reliance synonymous with commercial fishing.
After a tour of duty in the U.S. Merchant Marines, Jeff moved into the building industry. In 1978 Jeff started his custom home building company, in which he specializes in the construction of high end residential homes in the "Hamptons," on the East end of Long Island. His well established company, with over 115 full time employees, has expanded into other facets of the building industry such as property and estate management. Custom home building and Estate Management is "all about service", a company philosophy that Jeff brings to Outer Reef Yachts.
Jeff started in the boat building business back in 1996 when he built the first of his last four yachts, the latest being a 75 Expedition Yacht. "I have instilled the same principals and attention to detail that I have in my custom home building business. My extensive knowledge of construction details, and passionate knowledge of boats and Yachts over the past 34 years has made my transition into the yacht building industry possible".
Outer Reef Yachts is the culmination of a life long passion for boating and the sea. "My goal is to produce the ultimate Yacht so others may follow their dreams, as I have in my years of cruising."
