This exceptional 2019 70’ Outer Reef was built for extremely knowledgeable owners with the mutual goal to build the most detailed and equipped 700 Outer Reef ever built to date.
During this build, they engaged in multiple design sessions and conversations, with their ultimate goal to begin construction of an 900 Outer Reef Long Range Motoryacht, which is now fully contracted and will soon begin construction.
The 700 Outer Reef Series has recently won two awards for “Best Long Range Cruising Yacht” in her size range. Every aspect of this yacht’s construction and layout maximize volume, in combination with an unrivaled décor. JULIANNE is noted for excellent sea keeping and sensational fuel economy, which maximizes this model’s range. A recent 700 MY sister ship left Seattle on a very successful eight thousand mile+ voyage to South Chile, joining another 700 Outer Reef, making the voyage from Fort Lauderdale several years ago to the same destination in, only a couple of hundred miles from Cape Horn.
With past new 700 Outer Reef deliveries to distance destinations like Australia and Europe, and multiple and continual new deliveries to the United States, the popularity of this series has created a backlog of consummated purchase agreements, with a number of orders yet to begin construction. Outer Reef Yachts carries no extra-profit dealer network, timeless traditional design, an extremely high level of quality control. All Outer Reef Yachts are only built-to-order, with the proven result of having the highest level of retention of value in resale in the industry.
This 700 Motoryacht has just been listed for sale at hundreds of thousands below replacement pricing, with all new-boat warranties.This is a very detailed preliminary listing, and additional upgrades that have been made by the owners will be added to the brochure soon.
On display at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 30 - November 3, Dock BC.

Single handed operation is possible with this yachts hydraulic and upgraded proportional bow and stern thrusters, and the 2,400 gallon fuel capacity allows a range of over 2,800 nautical miles with reserve fuel at 9 knots. The accommodation plan features a mid-ship full beam king berth master with his and hers heads, a queen berth VIP forward, a double berth cabin with upper Pullman berth to port, and a 4th aft guest/crew area with a unique new layout, with each cabin having an ensuite head and shower.
Twin 20 kw Northern Lights generators, 7.5 Trac stabilizers, chilled water air conditioning, water maker, two sets of washers and dryers, an inverter system with extensive additional house bank batteries, are just some of many upgraded systems. This 70’ Outer Reef also will be the quietest ever built, with substantial additional costs to add insulation materials, to minimize or eliminate any transfer of sound between staterooms.
All exterior stainless rails were upgraded to the same size as those installed on our larger 80’ to 88’ series. The spacious aft deck has a custom enlarged teak table and built in seating, with wet bar and refrigerator, wing doors, and twin staircases to an extended integrated swim platform. Covered side decks also include exterior access to an on-deck head.
Moving forward from the aft deck into the salon, one can only by impressed with a layout that maximizes seating and is embellished with beautiful joinery, and many custom décor additions. With two steps up to beautiful well equipped galley and on deck head opposite, there are no fixed bulkheads to a spacious Pilothouse with comfortable seating, two upgraded powered Stidd chairs and upgraded dining table. Not only is rear vision unobstructed from the lower helm, but the feeling is that you have just entered a much larger yacht. In addition, an electrically powered rising wall, beautifully decorated on both sides, is integrated into the aft section of the Pilothouse seating, and can be raised for night time travel, or simply to provide separation from the galley if that area is being used extensively, or in the salon, should owner’s or guests are enjoying the upgraded entertainment features of this yacht in the salon. A cleverly designed aft staircase in the salon, leads down to the second set of washer and dryers, and a 4th cabin or crew area with dinette seating, large double berth cabin with ensuite head, galleyette, plus access through a transom door to the extended swim platform area aft or entry forward into full height air conditioned engine room. Electronics, and AV systems throughout the yacht were chosen for ultimate performance rather than cost. On the foredeck the windlass was upgraded, and optional lounge-type seating in lieu of the standard bench seating.
The wide planked teak and wenge trimmed interior flooring was installed through the vessel, and is complemented by extensive use of marble, granite and other custom stone choices and other unique trim. For ease of owner operation, the full stand up engine room allows excellent access to equipment and systems with fore and aft doors. The Sea Torque enclosed shaft system produces additional fuel efficiency and in combination with additional soundproofing allows the yacht to be whisper quiet underway.
The flybridge with upgraded powered Stidd helm chairs provides substantial seating with tables under a large hardtop. The boat deck has safety features which includes two six person emergency rafts, a large BBQ grill with twin 20 lb LP tanks, 1,700 lb fully hydraulic davit, a fully equipped 14’ AB Oceanus 14 VST with a 60hp Evinrude mounted athwart ships, exterior hatch and full staircase to the aft deck, a custom Vetrazzo bar and sufficient additional area for entertaining and other items such as kayaks or scooters, with more usable deck space than many larger vessels.
Additionally, for sun protection, the yacht has an awning from the aft end of the hardtop to stainless rails, which can be stored easily when not in use. The list of upgrades on this 2019 700 model, which were detailed in numerous design sessions, are the most extensive and detailed of any 70’ built to date.

This 2019 70’ Outer Reef is unique. This yacht was built under the direction of longtime clients, who previously built a new yacht at our facility nineteen years ago, which was the most detailed and highly equipped vessel ever built when delivered in 2000. Since then they have owned high quality yachts from well know builders, including 81' Northern Marine, 90' Burger and several Grand Banks. In the spring of 2017, after additional diligence in reviewing a number of potential choices for their future cruising, they made the decision to move forward with their second build, and the result was the most extensively equipped 700 Outer Reef Motoryacht ever built to date. No expense was spared to allow this new yacht, with more than one million dollars in upgrades, to again be considered the Flagship, in relation to many previously delivered 70’s to other owners.
During the build process, her owners, with their family growing in size and the blessing of recent new grandchildren, began to examine more closely their future cruising requirements, and engaged the owner of Outer Reef Yachts to initiate drawings and specifications on a new custom-built 90’ Outer Reef, and are moving forward with that build. As the only new Outer Reef of any size available worldwide, and in particular with a number of new 70’ orders in progress and several still to begin construction from other client orders, this 70’ is available without the current almost two year wait for delivery, and due to recent and upcoming price increases on this series, this yacht can be purchased well below a future new build order of an identically equipped new 70’ Outer Reef.
