Outer Reef unveiled its Trident Series of long-range yachts in 2014, with an emphasis on versatility, expanded volume, and luxury. Last month, it celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Trident with the launch of the 620 Trident EVO at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

Taking a cue from the 650 Trident EVO that debuted in 2022, this newest EVO 62-footer is notable for its improved performance and fuel efficiency. The Volvo Penta’s Electronic Vessel Control system for its twin Volvo D8 600 hp engines is coupled with a SeaTorque enclosed shaft drive system. These upgrades replace the 620’s previous Cummins-Zeus pod drive system, resulting in smoother joystick control and nimbler handling.

The innovative plumb-bow design by Ward Setzer provides large, breezy interior spaces suitable for either day trips or extended cruising in the range of 8 to 24 knots. The 620 also has an optional hardtop that can be hydraulically lowered to fit under low bridges, while still allowing for superior unobstructed views from the flybridge.

The aft teak deck includes a built-in hydraulic swim platform, providing 10 feet of room for tender storage, and twin stairways leading up to the U-shaped bench seating in the cockpit around a wooden table with the inlaid trident logo. Walkaround teak decks lead forward to the non-skid foredeck sunpad with adjustable headrests.

The weathertight glass wing doors to the interior open outward and flip up vertically into the cockpit space to blend inside and outside environments when the weather is nice. The salon area can be customized with a galley, located midship or aft, that’s equipped with Corian countertops, a stainless-steel sink, a Vitrifrigo refrigerator/freezer combo, a Bosch dishwasher and microwave, and an induction cooktop. The interior salon décor is offered in three color palettes, and includes a built-in, L-shaped settee and an entertainment center with a 47” HDTV lift and Samsung audio.

The pilothouse comes standard with a Garmin navigational package, two GPSMAP 8616 displays, open-array digital radar, VHF AIS/RX/PA, and Reactor autopilot, along with a SonarHub module, a 4” magnetic compass, and a Stidd helm chair. Portside of the helm is a dining table and settee on a raised platform. Up on the flybridge, a similar navigation helm in an open-air environment features two Naugahyde Stidd chairs, two settees aft, and a table to port. Two steps down on the upper aft deck is more space for sunbathing, a mini-bar, and a barbecue grill.   

A curved stairway starboard of the lower helm leads to the three staterooms, all of which can be ordered in either satin varnish or high-gloss upgrades. The full-beam midship owner’s stateroom includes a king-size berth, two nightstand tables, and an en suite head with shower, Corian countertops and Grohe faucet hardware. The forward VIP stateroom has a tapered queen-size berth with walkaround access and an en suite head and a glass shower door. The guest stateroom has two bunk beds and its own head and shower.
