For those looking for a blue-water capable vessel, Outer Reef Yachts might have just the yacht for you. The 2012 700 Long Range Motor Yacht known as Erma is currently listed with Outer Reef at an asking price of $2.6 million.

“There is nothing more satisfying than to build a yacht that is not only luxurious and comfortable for everyday cruising, but that also meets the highest of standards for the most treacherous of journeys,” Jeff Druek, president and CEO of Outer Reef Yachts, previously told Yachting about the 700 LRMY

To meet these open-water-cruising standards, Outer Reef builds its hulls with hand-laid fiberglass and PBC core sandwich construction above the water line. There’s also vinylester barrier lamination for osmosis protection. The yacht also has full-length longitudinal engine stringers and athwartships stringers adding serious backbone to the yacht. The robust construction extends to all areas. For instance, the yacht’s salon windows are 3/8-inch tempered glass with half-inch tempered glass in the pilothouse.

Erma is powered with C-12 Caterpillar diesels that were completely rebuilt at 3,300 hours, which Outer Reef says included, replacing “all 12-cylinder liner kits, replaced cylinder heads, replaced connection rod bearings, removed, cleaned and reinstalled all coolers, aftercoolers replaced with new units, new thermostats, belts and hoses installed. All new fluids – engine oil, generator oil and transmission fluid, coolants and new filters as necessary.” The motors just had their 1,000-hour servicing completed in February 2023.

This powerplant setup provides a 22-knot top speed. At 9 knots, this long-range cruiser can travel nonstop for 3,000 nautical miles. The yacht also has a Bahamas-friendly 5-foot draft.

The salon is geared for relaxing after a long travel day and features an overhead decorative wood handrail and recessed lighting. There are two lounge chairs to starboard or a folding hi-lo table and six-person L-shaped sofa to port.

The galley is separated from the pilothouse by an electronically controlled glass partition, allowing guests private dining at the forward dinette. The lower helm station has a two-seat arrangement.  

Belowdecks are Erma’s three staterooms. The amidships master stateroom has an athwartships king berth with en suite head to port. The forepeak VIP stateroom has a centerline berth and an en suite head and the guest stateroom to port has bunk berths and an en suite head.

Erma’s cockpit is the perfect location for up to six people to enjoy alfresco dining thanks to its transom bench seat aft, fixed table and four loose chairs.
