As we arrived, a small crew was literally making the final tucks and tweaks to the magnificent interior. The vessel was scheduled to leave for Trawl- erfest early the following morn- ing, but there was just time for a sea trial and a photo shoot, and introduction for Ocean Alexander. The trademark that began in 1977, with a boat drawn on a nap- kin during lunch on Bainbridge Island, was originally considered Ocean Alexander directed its efforts to becoming a leader in the pilothouse motoryacht category. While extremely popular throughout the entire United States, Ocean Alexander has always enjoyed an especially enthusiastic mar- ket in the Pacific Northwest. Some recent Ocean Alexander models have begun moving the pendulum back toward the Ocean Alexander's 60-foot Trawler Extended Cruiser represents a return to the company's trawler roots.

EXTERIOR STYLING Ocean Alexander's 60 foot "Trawler Extended Cruiser" was obviously drawn with bluewater navigation in mind. The stem incorporates Ocean Alexander's patented "S-bow," a specifically adapted version of a bulbous bow that improves fuel efficiency, reduces wake, and enhances the ride at sea. Above the waterline, the curved stem morphs grace- fully into a generously flared hull with high freeboard. A Portuguese bridge will help intercept those few waves still bold enough to break on the foredeck. The high bulwark continues well aft of the pilothouse doors, and drops quickly to a still comfortable and reassuring height along the aft portions of the side decks. In an unusual but sensible styling detail, the bulwarks rise again aft of the main cabin windows to create a much taller than typical transom, which is less likely The flybridge is set back from the leading edge of the pilothouse, allowing

The pilothouse features two Stidd helm chairs and an extensive array of electronics. The salon makes a fabulous first impression, with a pair of deluxe chairs opposite a spacious L-shaped settee and hi-lo teak table. Premium appliances and surfaces are featured in the mid- level galley.

Ocean Alexander has long been known for spectacular joinery, and the teak sol- ids and veneers used in the 60 will cer- tainly enhance that hard-won reputation. The grain matches, the stain matches, and the effect is undeniable. A compass rose, inlaid into the teak and holly sole immediately inside the aft bulkhead door, sets the theme for a boat that combines open-ocean capabilities with breathtak- We noted a Sony 32-inch LCD TV with a...

boater really has to want that final knot, as it is achieved with a notable decrease in fuel efficiency. At 14-knots, we were burn- ing 28 gallons per hour. Slowing down just slightly, to 13 knots, saved 10 gallons of diesel per hour. We found 10 knots to be an appealing cruise speed, and at 1,800 RPM we were burning 12 gallons per hour. With 1,550 gallons of fuel, the Ocean Alexan- der 60 can easily achieve over a 1,000-mile range with prudent reserve.
