60 Foot Long-Range Yachts

If you want to explore remote islands, retire on your motor yacht, work remotely, or cross an ocean, our yacht insurance specialists recommend considering one of these vessels in the 60-foot range.

Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht

The Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht is an excellent cruising option if you’re looking for fuel-efficient and easy to maneuver. At 61’2″, this yacht is big enough for entertaining without being so big it feels unwieldy. She can cruise between 9 to 18 knots, maxing out at 23 knots. The 1,000-gallon fuel tank provides 1,200 nautical miles range at an average 8 knots.

The 610 has a built-in extended swim platform, ideal for fishing or diving. The FRP bench seating boasts under-the-seat storage. The side decks have non-skid surfaces, courtesy LED lights along the walkways for visibility when it’s dark, and weathertight doors for access to the pilothouse port and starboard. The Portuguese bridge boasts locker doors in aft face and a hinged door to the foredeck.

In terms of living space, aboard the 610 you and your guests will enjoy a comfortable salon with teak cabinetry and lockers and built-in seating, a master stateroom with your choice of either king or queen size berth and an ensuite master head, a VIP stateroom forward, a guest stateroom port, and a guest head accessible from the VIP stateroom and the lower hallway. The galley is well-appointed with teak cabinets, chrome fixtures, and stainless steel appliances.

Nordhavn 63

Nordhavn has several excellent options for extended cruising. The Nordhavn 63 is no exception. Utilizing many of the popular design elements from the 47, the Nordhavn designers added additional living space and design upgrades while delivering a high level of offshore capability. The vessel is designed on the same hull as the 55/60. Captains appreciate the straight-line tracking and that the 18′ beam allows for more versatility in selecting a slip. The vessel’s fuel capacity is 2,500 gallons.  The fuel is divided among four large tanks and an aluminum day tank that is gravity feed from the large tanks. The range is 3,000 nautical miles at approximately 7 knots.

Following tradition, the 63 has the utilitarian design and high quality. However, the interior also addresses comfort and convenience more than previous versions. For example, the galley can comfortably occupy two people and has a pass-through that allows anyone preparing food to engage with others in the sitting area. The vessel has a well two well-appointed staterooms (three if you forgo the additional head from the forward stateroom) and plenty of storage, including a wine cellar. 

Fleming 58

This Australian designed vessel is an excellent choice for long coastal or even transoceanic travel.  The 58-foot classic pilothouse trawler design is beloved for its maneuverability and quality design. The Express Joystick System takes the MAN i800 engines and hydraulic bow and stern thrusters in and out of gear and can hold a position with just the push of a button. The Express Joystick makes docking at numerous marinas a breeze for a savvy couple.

Norman Wright and Sons in Brisbane designed the new vessel to maintain the recognizable style while enhancing safety, comfort, and functionality. The Fleming 58 gracefully bridges the gap between the 55 and 65. The yacht carries 1,450 gallons of fuel in two tanks and will travel 9.75 knots at a range of 1,201 nautical miles (10% reserve).
