SHE HANDLES HEAVY WEATHER Story And Photography By BILL JACOBS As we cleared the Ft. Lauderdale jetties, the two yachts, which minutes ago had looked i large in their slips, suddenly were like toy boats tossed to and fro by the breaking waves of the Atlantic. A strong, persistent flow of easterlies had built up some impressive seas. After a brief discussion at the dock before sunrise, we had decided to venture into the ocean for our scheduled photo shoot of the Ocean Alexander 50 Classicco. The boat we'd be shooting from, the comfortable and luxurious Ocean Alexander 52 motoryacht, was a far cry from the small runabouts and fishing boats to which I've become accustomed. Capt. Al Eason and his crew did their best to hold our platform reasonably steady as Bob Holland, a photographer for Ocean Alexander's ad agency, and I shot frame after frame of the 50 tackling the seas. She looked proud and steady as she punched through the waves into the rising sun. What better test could there be of the seagoing capabilities of this stout trawler yacht? After an hour of both boats and crew being banged around, we headed inside. Capt. Steve Wanger backed the 50 to our stern as I transferred with my gear to complete the sea trial. We discovered that while under way in rolling seas, the saloon table, which inadvertently had not been fastened down, had come loose and recorded its voyage across the cabin, gouging the teak-and-holly sole. Capt. Steve, who does the commissioning of the OA yachts, was not happy, nor was he excited about taking the boat back into the open ocean. I couldn't blame him. We decided to conclude our tests and decibel readings within the confines of the jetty and the ICW Even that proved quite a challenge: Port Everglades was bustling. As we attempted to traverse the protected waters, we had to dodge two outgoing cruise ships, three inbound freighters, Coast Guard patrols, and assorted tugs and pilot boats. In my limited time aboard, the boat ran smoothly and handled every course adjustment with ease. Her John Deere engine is well insulated; decibel readings in the pilothouse ranged from 72dBA at idle to 79dBA at wide-open throttle (12 knots). Having watched her from the 52 in big ocean swells, I was impressed by her apparent stability in weather one would never choose to be boating in. The boat is designed to accept active stabilizers, but because this was an inventory model, she was not so equipped. She is hard chined in the aft third of her hull, and this, coupled with her full skeg, provides an impressive amount of hull form stability. Reprinted with permission.

Ocean Alexander 50 Classicco FUEL USAGE AT VARIOUS SPEEDS Shorepower receptacles (50 amps each) are located on each side of the vessel, but both are well forward.

Each battery is contained in a rugged case, with its cover secured by nylon straps. All batteries are readily accessible for servicing, which, because they are of the flooded variety, will be required. Lacking, however, is a consolidated battery switch outside the engine room...
