Yacht of the Week: Another Sip of Ti Punch!
It’s the Holiday season, so, it’s not unusual to pour one more of your favorite cocktail, so that makes it also a great time to take one more “sip” of Ti Punch! For our “Yacht of the Week” this week, we return once again for another look at Ti Punch – our extra special 86 foot Outer Reef yacht.
Ti Punch was one of our featured yachts at the recent Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, and we are pleased to announce that we are extending the show special price reduction on this outstanding yacht, until the end of the year!
How would you like to ring in the New Year from the deck of your own luxury motor yacht? It’s not too late, especially with a price-reduction on this remarkable Outer Reef!
Ti Punch is the most amazing, the most unique, Outer Reef Yacht you will ever see! Since this outstanding 86 foot Outer Reef Yacht has been in our inventory, she has previously been our Yacht of the Week, and has even been featured on the Television Show, Selling Yachts.
One look at her and you will know immediately why we say the Ti Punch “is not your father’s Outer Reef.” The Ti Punch 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, and our goal was to help them do that in style.”
Special Features of This One of a Kind Outer Reef.
There are just so many striking differences between Ti Punch and your typical 86 foot Outer Reef. One of the most striking examples is she has full-sized stainless steel sliding doors. If you didn’t know any better, they would look like they belong on this boat, but that alone represents a major change for an Outer Reef. This look was such an improvement, that the concept is going to be incorporated by the manufacturer on other Outer Reefs, but for now, the only yacht where you can find these special doors is Ti Punch!
Destry has also totally redesigned the entertainment features on this yacht. She replaced the often problematical “drop down” TV, with a 55 inch TV in the corner recessed into the wall. This eliminated the problems with the motorized drop down, without compromising the look or the space of the interior. In fact, this design opens up more space in the salon, as well as more space upstairs on the aft deck.
“The most satisfying projects that I work on are those in which our clients challenge us to do something different, to push the envelope,” says Destry, “and there was a lot of that on this project.”
The owners’ last motor yacht was a Lazzara 80, so they took a lot of the look and feel from that boat, such as the bar area, and the very open main salon. But again, these interiors are very unique to an Outer Reef. Another thing is you won’t find the traditional formal dining area. That is because they really wanted to make this boat all about family. They have kids and grandkids, and when the family is on board, they are either eating on one of the decks or in the lounge areas. So if you have a big family, this is a perfect yacht for you.
“It’s a Fun Boat”
This really is a fun boat. It’s laid back, kind of informal, but even being casual, it is elegant and classy. A perfect blend of the finer things in life, with a “party animal” appeal. She may depart somewhat from the typical formal interior, but that is part of her appeal, and overall she is the nicest, and richest looking Outer Reef ever built.
Everything on this boat is custom because the owner wanted an Outer Reef, but didn’t want the “typical” Outer Reef. That is why we knew that Destry was the right designer for this project. It was a challenge to the builder, and they executed it brilliantly, no doubt due to her excellent plans and designs.
Even the galley area is different from anything the builders had ever done before. You simply cannot step aboard any other Outer Reef and find it has any resemblance to this boat.
If you are in the market for a luxury yacht that is truly “one of a kind,” this is it, and now her price has been reduced just in time for the New Year!
