Billy Joel’s classic 57-foot commuter yacht Vendetta, launched in 2005, has had a two-plus year refit in Newport Beach, California, and now is up for sale.

As the beautiful Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht "SILVER SKYE" journeyed through the northeast U.S. this past summer, cruising couple Nick and Robin enjoyed an informative and memorable visit to Ocean Alliance, located in Gloucester, Massachusetts, as well as other areas in New England including Mystic, Connecticut and Kennebunkport, Maine.
