Ocean Alexander was began 30 years ago by Alex Chueh, who set out to build the world’s finest motor yachts. With a workforce instilled with deep disciplines, he set out to create a new level of artistry. In 1978, Chueh met with famed naval architect Ed Monk Jr., and a long partnership followed, resulting in the yachts that Ocean Alexander builds today. Today, Alex’s son John Chueh continues the company’s long partnership with Ed Monk. Ocean Alexander produces a range of yachts from 51’ to 98’ feet, including open flybridge and enclosed flybridge versions. The a new models are built using a proven Ocean Alexander hull from Ed Monk Jr. and his design team of Ed Hagemann (hydrodynamics) and Tim Nolan (structural design). Ocean Alexander utilizes hand-laid fiberglass hulls, select AL600 balsa-cored sides with solid fiberglass bottoms and prop tunnel design for optimum performance. Aluminum structural beams with carbon fiber reinforcements are integrated for rigidity and strength. Ocean Alexander 680 specializes in long range coastal cruisers, capable of serious passage making while still offering all the amenities of an elegant motoryacht.
Production yacht builder Ocean Alexander is a well-recognized name for those who keep up with luxury yacht offerings. In recent years the yard has been making a thrust to revolutionize its offerings with ever-more stylish and modern yachts. In doing this, the available range has expanded and there are now four main categories that customers have to choose from; the Divergence, Revolution, Explorer and Legend. Divergence is OA's foray into the center console market. The other yachts from the remaining three ranges are for a crowd with a discerning eye for the finer things under 40-meters. The Legend series is what we'll be looking at in this feature. The yard offers the Legend 32L as well as the slightly larger 37L.
Ocean Alexander has been keeping quiet regarding a couple new models they have been working on. One of them is the OA 27E which is an 89-foot yacht from their 'Explorer' series. Having similar styling and lines cued from recent models, the 27E will certainly turn heads. The appeal of this vessel is her relatively small footprint but decent internal volume as well as space to store the tenders out of the way of guests.
Ocean Alexander is pleased to announce that they are displaying three new models at the 2021 edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). The new models on display at the 62nd FLIBS event range from 30-37 meters in length. The 30R and 35R are models in the popular Revolution series and the 37L is the new flagship of the Legend series. All three yachts were designed in collaboration with Evan K. Marshall and have once again commanded the attention of the yachting world with their innovative design, compelling amenities, and luxurious finishes.
Ocean Alexander has announced that it delivered eight (8) yachts for the second quarter of 2021 (between April and June). Gregg Kopp, based at MarineMax Miami, sold and delivered a 28-meter Revolution in April. "The buyer was impressed with the fantastic layout, design and build quality of the 28R," shares Kopp. He adds, "I think there were many factors such as the sheer volume of the 28R, the breathtaking flow, incredible on deck master and spectacular enclosed bridge that made the buyer choose this yacht."
The new owner of this new Ocean Alexander 32 Legend is stepping up. Previously owning a 65 Marquis the owners were looking to step up and initially looked at an inventory Ocean Alexander 85. They then toured an Ocean Alexander OA100 before deciding that it was a better decision to go for the OA 32 Legend based on its updated styling and features.
After the relative success of its OA100 line Ocean Alexander has sought to update this model and is now introducing the OA105 with a look that is more sophisticated and perhaps now familiar -after seeing the Revolution builds-. The 33-meter vessel is actually 33.13-meters LOA has has a design by Evan K Marshall. The first hull is already under construction and you will get to see it later in the year, in October.
The spotlight has been on the 90R from builder Ocean Alexander since the industry got wind of it a few years ago and through its build and premiere last year in Fort Lauderdale. The 84R as you would expect will follow similar attention when she debuts at the 2019 edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). The 84R though will offer a different experience to the client and guests. The interior alone is quite different from the 90R and it needed to be to differentiate itself from her larger sibling.
