As Featured In: new & notable space capsule Ocean Alexander’s newest model has room to spare, inside and out. story by MARK T. MASCIAROTTE O ver the years, Ocean Alexander Marine has regularly, but carefully, introduced new models to take advantage of its customers’ desire to move up to ever-bigger boats. These additions have resulted in a marked increase in the company’s market share, which was recently reported to be 23 percent of yacht imports to the U.S. West Coast. As production yachts tend to do, the company’s newest offering, a 98-foot (29.9-meter) motor yacht, follows in the wake of previous models in terms of both finish and mechanical and electrical installations. It sets a new course, however, in terms of complexity and space planning. The boat’s general arrangement should appeal to yacht owners who have large families or who enjoy having lots of room for guests. The layout of the main deck is straightforward and exemplifies the lifestyle that Ocean Alexander customers, the majority of whom are West Coast based, enjoy. There is a spacious California deck that provides easy access to the water from the aft deck and to the crew accommodations and engine room via a transom door. The aft deck itself is sheltered from the weather by the boat deck and is equipped with a settee and table. Inside, the spacious and wellarranged main salon is separated from specifications » the dining area by a buffet-height LOA: 100'3" (30.56 m) console, inside which resides a 52-inch LWL: 88'3" (26.9 m) Beam: 22' (6.1 m) plasma TV. Draft: 5'4" (1.63 m) A short passageway leads to the Displ.: 120 tn galley, which is arranged in the Power: 2x 1,500-hp MTU Cruise speed: 18 kn popular country-kitchen layout and Range: 702 nm @ 18 kn commands the entire forward third Improvements in space planning aboard the Ocean Alexander 98 have created a roomy wheelhouse with good flow and space for a comfortable settee and dayhead (not shown). of the superstructure on the main deck. Unlike many boats that eliminate glazing on the forward end of the house, the OA 98’s country kitchen is glazed along both sides as well as forward, thus becoming a pleasant, airy space with abundant light and a cosmopolitan feel. The OA 98’s belowdecks arrangement is where the surprise comes into play. There are two stairways that descend from the main deck. One, located in the main salon, leads to a small lobby off which are three cabins. The owner’s stateroom is a full-beam affair with two heads, a pair of dressers and hanging lockers and a king-size berth. Forward of the lobby are two guest staterooms, each of which has a queen-size berth. » SHOWBOATS.COM | August/september 2006

Both of these cabins share a head, while those off the aft stairway have ensuite heads. What makes this all the more intriguing is that there is still plenty of room in the machinery spaces to perform routine maintenance, more room in fact than on some recent 120-footers built by competing companies. And if that were not enough, there are two generous...
