Last month saw the well known US luxury yacht builder, Outer Reef Yachts, successfully participate in three boat shows, globally representing their Long Range Motoryacht Classic Series as well as new Trident Series at the 2015 Düsseldorf Boat Show, Seattle Boat Show and the Riviera Beach, Florida Trawler Fest. All three events produced increased market activity for Outer Reef Yachts, resulting in three new build contracts signed at the Düsseldorf show alone. The contracts comprise new builds for both the Outer Reef Classic Series, as well as the new Outer Reef Trident Series.
Jeff Druek, President and CEO of Outer Reef Yachts, stated, “International boat show attendance is imperative to Outer Reef Yachts, as it allows our team of professionals to connect with each of our localized markets’ customers, prospects and media partners, while collectively expanding our accessibility and knowledge. At boot, the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, we experienced a high volume of interest that translated into commitments from the northern and central European marketplace. We believe this is due to the re-emerging economy and a rekindled desire to spend leisure time yachting, hence the need to own a robust, proven, and efficient long range cruiser. This desire translates to all geographic areas of our marketplace, as we were also fortunate to experience heightened enthusiasm from the other January 2015 show attendees visiting Outer Reef Yachts.”
Originally a concept born from a client boat show discussion, Outer Reef’s new Trident Series is a recent concept-turned-reality, with a flurry of new build activity at the state of the art shipyard located in Split, Croatia. Due to owners’ and prospects’ needs for a trustworthy, seafaring vessel offered in 55’, 65’ and 75’, and 98’ lengths, the first Trident will be available for a personalized tour at the upcoming 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Prior to this, the first Trident 550 will be available for sea trials at our shipyard in Split this summer.
With a passion for safe, efficient, smart and enjoyable yachting as the common thread, the world of Outer Reef owners and perspective owners continues to experience healthy growth at boat shows and beyond. As this trend continues, the company strives to preserve a very intimate, personalized experience for the family of Outer Reef Yacht owners and those able to enjoy the Outer Reef experience, wherever their journey takes them.
