Offshore 64 Voyager
The storied Offshore Yachts line has a new addition in the 64 Voyager. Offshore, the creation of Richard O. Hunt, who cut his teeth exploring fiberglass building methods for the U.S. Navy during WWII, and famed yacht designer William Crealock, started in the boatyards of Taiwan in the 1980s. Their debut build, the popular 48, quickly established the brand as a go-to for motor cruising owner-operators with big ambitions. Offshore Voyager 64 is midsized for the builder, as they currently make models ranging from 52’ to 90’ length overall.
The 64 is a lot of boat, from the bench seating in the foredeck to the large swim step off the stern. With an 18’ 6” beam for the length, there is a sleek look to her vs. other yachts of this size that blow up the beam for more space but can look rather tubby. The large flybridge is a prominent design feature with its own helm station, captain and co-captain chairs, L-shaped seating around tables, roaming space, and a dinghy davit system that can accommodate a large 15’ tender easily. A wet mini-bar is also sheltered under the hardtop cover of the flybridge. A ladder leads directly into the cockpit, which is large and clutter free with many large stowage opportunities.
As one might expect, the interior is spacious with a massive salon, fit to entertain a dozen or more guest. The interior bucks the trendy “open” single-level layout of some of her contemporaries and opts for a more traditional semi-enclosed galley up a few steps midships (near the stairs to the flybridge). There’s more entertainment space forward near the helm, and steps below lead to three enclosed staterooms with berths and three heads. The 64 comes with twin 715-horsepower Caterpillar C12 inboard diesel engines as standard, and 40-horsepower bow and stern thrusters are commonsense additions.
