Yachts Miami Beach 2016 - Day 2

So it’s Friday, the second official day of the Yachts Miami Beach Show, and a whole lot of boats and boat features have happily appeared on the ol’ Power & Motoryacht radar screen. Just a few:

Belzona 325

A sliding gunwale on this Belzona 325, a mid-range (can you believe?) center console. The feature facilitates getting aboard for divers and wheelchair users alike.

Nordic Tug 44

The Nordic Tug 44 is one of the coolest of its kind, thanks to a flyrod or two hanging from the overhead of her saloon, and a set of chocks on the boat deck that accommodate a Dragonfly flats boat. The deal? Anchor the boat in a likely spot and use the flats boat to nail a bonefish or two.

Outer Reef 86

One of the noteworthy features of the new Outer Reef 86 was her strictly residential furniture. The boat arrived from across the pond just a few days before the show. Interior designers vetted the furniture and added to the saloon, shown here. Good taste? Yup.

Outer Reef 86 engine room

Twin Volvo Penta IPS1200s dominate the ER of the Outer Reef 86. A shippy, well organized space, by the way.

Amy Baker

Like many other manufacturers, Outer Reef throws parties at most boat shows. But one thing’s a bit different…at every Outer Reef party Amy Baker, an entertainer from the United Kingdom, provides live entertainment. Nice sound, rather Adele-like.
