Twin 1,600 hp Caterpillar C-32 diesels provide power for Insignia, giving this bluewater cruiser a reported 23-knot top-end speed and a cruising speed of 9 to 14 knots.

According to Outer Reef Yachts, the hardtop over the skylounge is designed with a fold-down mast and removable satellite domes, which reduces its air draft to 20-feet 6-inches, allowing it to cruise through the Erie Barge Canal. The yacht’s six-foot draft makes it an effective Bahamas cruiser too.
