Upgrades September 2014
5-Step cleaning, waxing, and polishing - process done to the superstructure by Aqua Marine. Exterior and interior now truly pristine.
This exceptionally well thought-out and extremely well equipped Outer Reef 73 was originally built for a boat building family who wanted to cruise and anchor out in relatively remote areas with as few noise intrusions as possible.  FIREFLY , ex- SEE YA , was built with a great deal of attention to sound insulation and battery generated electricity.  Her highly customized electrical system and enormous battery capacity must be seen to be appreciated.  Her present like-minded owners have reaped the benefits of this planning and have added their own improvements and upgrades to make FIREFLY an even more trouble-free, safe, and comfortable yacht.  In a very short time (April 2013 - December 2013) they have taken FIREFLY from Florida to as far North as the Bras d'or Lake in Nova Scotia and back.  The experience has been so enjoyable that they are now moving up to a larger yacht (willing to consider trades).  One would be hard pressed to find another long range yacht of this size that has been as well cared for and as intelligently engineered and equipped as FIREFLY .
