Photography by Bugsy Gedlek. 56 BOAT INTERNATIONAL USA T he latest and largest launch from Taiwanese yard Alexander Marine is the first of its new Ocean Alexander 98s. Unveiled at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show in February and currently offered for sale, this brand-new big-volume motor yacht is certainly imposing. With all that glazing at main deck level and her pilothouse and sky lounge perched up above, she is virtually a tri-decker. Entered through an electric aft deck door, the open-plan main saloon consists of a lounge area aft and a dining area forward. Most of the furniture is free-standing, except for a centerpiece that conceals a large-screen pop-up surround-sound entertainment screen. What makes this latter item of particular interest – along with the many other televisions aboard – is the all-new Kaleidescape media library and server to which it is connected. Not only does this system, with its colossal fiveterabyte capacity, include an extensive library of some 200 DVDs and 100 CDs, but also includes the original artwork, thus allowing the viewer to choose from a showcase of covers versus a listing of names. The menu however, is flexible, as all of the films can be listed in a

And when a movie is selected using a remote control, a brief description pops up on screen as well. The main saloon décor is very soft and subtle, with high-gloss mahogany joinery complemented nicely by burr and granites, and rich bronze metallic lacquer in places. Also used to great effect are a scattering of metal tiles with printed patterns on them. The forward half of the main...

Three of those cabins, including the owner’s full-beam affair aft, are located amidships just forward of the engine room and the main fuel tanks. They are all accessed off the same central corridor, which is located via a staircase from the starboard side of the main deck lobby amidships. Two VIP cabins have inward-facing beds. 58 BOAT INTERNATIONAL USA Two additional cabins in double and twin layouts with a separate shared shower...

Just three pilot seats address the bridge controls, but the area behind is open to interpretation. There is a dayhead to port up there, but the rest of the space will be left to owner-selected furnishings. The space is probably best kept informal, as a door from there opens onto a great sundeck space, complete with bar and bar stools to port, L-sofa and pedestal table to starboard, and a large square hot tub. The back end of the sundeck is used for storing the tender...
