Our own charter broker, Will Snyder, was recently featured along with our unique 86 foot Outer Reef yacht for sale, Ti Punch on AWE-TV’s series, Selling Yachts.
As Will’s segment was introduced on the show, we saw him greeting Abe and Myrna, a couple looking for the ideal retirement yacht in Ti Punch, a unique coastal cruiser. Will introduced Abe and Myrna to Ti Punch as “the nicest Outer Reef ever built.” He could not have provided a more accurate description.
Ti Punch, which was twice featured as our “Yacht of the Week,” is an 86 foot Outer Reef like none other. She is one of the first Outer Reefs that employed an outside marine interior designer – Destry Darr with Destry Designs – to create a more modern, upscale, luxury cruising interior. “The 86′ Outer Reef Ti Punch is a traditional trawler style vessel,” says Destry. “Although our Clients wanted to maintain the traditional exterior of the boat and the ability to be ready to go anytime, anywhere, they desired a more modern, interior design and layout. The design of Ti Punch suited their casual lifestyle and offered everything they would require to navigate oceans comfortably and safely, our goal was to help them do that in style.”
From Yacht Charter Clients to Yacht Owners
Abe and Myrna have been around yachts and yacht charters for a long time, which made them ideally suited to appreciate the nuances and uniqueness of this luxury motor yacht. Abe told Will he felt that it was time to buy their own yacht, so they could go “where they wanted to go,” and he wanted a boat that was as capable of cruising inland waterways, as she was of getting out onto “blue ocean,” to visit friends and family along the east coast, or even to cruise down to South America. This is why Will felt Ti Punch was a perfect fit for them.
Myrna then told Will, about her 3 kids and 7 grandkids, and her love of entertaining, which also made Ti Punch a good fit for Myrna, with its unique galley arrangement and 4-stateroom layout – which caused Abe to remark, “great, that means we can bring along 8 friends, or 16 really close friends!”
Myrna was impressed with the full-size appliances and how the galley was the very center of the boat, making her the ideal vessel for dining and entertaining.
“Just Look at This View”
But, it was when Will took the couple to the Flybridge that Bill and Myrna, really fell in love with Ti Punch, where Abe sighed heavily, and said, “Now this is what I’m talking about, just look at this view.”
Will went on to explain the top-flight security features of the vessel, and showed the couple all of the water toys, that are also included in the sale. However, the asking price for this truly magnificent yacht, turned out to be a little beyond Abe and Myrna’s budget. So, Ti Punch is still available, and in fact, her asking price has recently been reduced!
As for Abe and Myrna, they are now considering Ms. Naomi, a 65 foot Marquis yacht that is also part of our charter fleet.
Watch for Will and more motor yachts from our broker inventory on future episodes of Selling Yachts, airing on AWE TV.
