We spent eight nights at marinas, and four nights on the hook. The Outer Reef 700 performed admirably. With seven Outer Reef deliveries under my keel, I have had the good fortune to deliver three Outer Reefs this year alone.
The Outer Reef 700, like the other Outer Reef models, is a well-found long-range yacht. Huge wide walk-around decks and high freeboard makes this a joy to operate and gives peace of mind that my crew are safe on deck. The 700 also rides extremely well at anchor. On this particular voyage, we consumed a total of 1,978 gallons on 2,200 gallons capacity leaving 222 gallons in reserve; which equates to 27.75 hours. At 8 GPH, that's an addition 249.5 miles.
It was great to have a 70-foot yacht with 5-foot draft under my feet. It makes the Intracoastal Waterway an excellent alternative to the dash and bash in more-than-marginal weather.
All in all, it was a great trip on a wonderful vessel. I am looking for my next Outer Reef adventure.
