SIMON SAYS was designed and built with systems to allow her to travel in sea conditions that would otherwise prevent similar size yachts to seek shelter in the closest port. With 14 tons of air conditioning and a full Webasto Diesel heating system, travel to areas of high heat or cold environments is always in comfort.
Her layout features 4 spacious owner & guest cabins, plus 2 crew cabins aft with heads, sky lounge and galley. For the owner/Operator, the Crew cabins are appointed equally to the guest cabins. This would increase to 8 cabins in total. The engines chosen for the boat provide a wide range of cruising speeds and ranges varying from 8.5 knots to 14.5 knots and up to 3000-mile range. Extended cruising in luxury and safety is the basic concept for an Outer Reef Yacht. All Outer Reef Yachts are built to open Ocean Category "A" (wave heights 18-20' and sustained winds of over 40 knots. This 86' Outer Reef is a true bluewater cruiser, powered for fuel economy and long-range. She's also designed specifically to do the great loop.
Her 3,500 gallon fuel capacity provides a range of 3,000 miles when required at hull speeds or higher cruising speeds to 14.5 knots for shorter passages. Further enhanced, this high volume vessel has very complete electronics and satellite systems, and for nighttime safety, the Carlisle and Finch Nightfinder 200 spotlight has an integrated FLIR pixel thermal camera providing 15 million candlepower to both identify and ward off a potential target in her path. With a total of six owner, crew and guest cabins, all with ensuite heads and showers, plus two additional heads on the main deck and skylounge, beautiful teak, marble and granite interior, spacious country kitchen, alfresco aft deck, large boat deck and comfortable salon, this yacht provides all the benefits of a 100’ vessel.
