Outer Reef 700:
Oceanic-Range Customizable Cruiser

Outer Reef 700
Outer Reef 700

The Outer Reef 700 is a well-equipped and beautifully-finished long range cruiser. She’s set up so that operation by an experienced yachting couple will be easy – with bow and stern thrusters to ensure easy docking. Her 2,400-gallon (9,085 L) fuel capacity and twin 750-hp John Deere diesels make her a true long-ranger. At 10.5 knots, her range exceeds 1130 NM. If there’s ever the need to squeeze maximum range out of her, dropping to 7.7 knots gives a range over 2,800 NM. The folks at Outer Reef will work with any client to make sure the model selected will be built to suit. More...

Riviera 395 SUV:
Port Helm Station for Two

Riviera 395 SUV
Riviera 395 SUV

The Riviera 395 SUV is an Australian-built yacht and she has a double-wide helm seat for the operator and a friend. Southpaws will like the control binnacle to port and we got used to it surprisingly quickly. Visibility forward and to the side is excellent. Air-conditioning vents cool the helm area and there’s a sliding window adjacent. Another vent on the forward dash keeps fog off the windshield which is equipped with a pair of large pantograph wipers with freshwater washers. Dark upholstery on the padded dash helps keep down glare. More...

Everglades 435CC:
4 x 425 Yamahas, 60.0 MPH WOT

Everglades 435CC
Everglades 435CC

The Everglades 435CC is a premium offshore fisherman loaded with every option the serious bluewater angler is likely to want, including the standard two-seat tower control station giving the skipper a gull's-eye view of the sea to locate bait or billfish as well as to keep an eye on lures in the wake. She’s powered with quad Yamaha 425-hp V8s, which allow her to head offshore (or for a distant island chain) at up to 60 mph. The 610-gallon (2,309 L) fuel capacity gave a range of nearly 400 SM at 24.7 mph. She can handle long weekends in the islands with a galley, stand-up head and shower, and a queen berth tucked into the air-conditioned console cabin. More...

Why Do Boats Sink at the Dock?

uscg report
Inspect these weak points on boats to head off a dockside sinking.

Each year more boats sink at the dock than offshore. So the question begs, why does a boat that's tied up safely to a dock or on a mooring sink? For an analysis of causes and recommendations to head off these problems, click here.

Carbon Monoxide – The Silent Killer

uscg report
Enclosed spaces on board should be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors.

Carbon Monoxide, or CO, is a tasteless, odorless gas that is produced by combustion of fossil fuels. It can mix with the air in enclosed spaces and poison those exposed to it, making them sick or even killing them. Know the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning and follow best practices to limit exposure for those on board. ABYC standards require all boats with engines and inside living spaces to have them. But, their batteries will die with time and must be replaced. Read up on this silent killer here.
