Making history

Historic sales success for Ocean Alexander at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

19 December 2018


The 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was an historic success for Ocean Alexander with seven new boat sale contracts signed on yachts, including the 90R, designed by acclaimed Evan K. Marshall, which debuted at the show.

“All eyes were on Ocean Alexander for the world debut of the 90R, the first yacht in the Revolution series,” said Alexander Marine Australia’s Managing Director, Todd Holzapfel.

The 90R was the centrepiece among five classic Ocean Alexander yachts ranging in size from 70 to 112-feet.

“Ocean Alexander experienced record-breaking attendance as customers from around the world travelled to see the stunning 90R for themselves. Eager buyers were amazed by the luxury features such as the beach club, floor-to-ceiling windows and on-deck master suite.”

With her plumb bow, the 90R has markedly increased interior volume, including the sky lounge which is equal in size to the main saloon of a much larger superyacht.



The Ocean Alexander 90R struck a chord with Australian visitors to FLIBS, and Todd reports they are “fielding interest from prospective local buyers with potential delivery in 2020”.

“They said they were impressed by the expanded living spaces and floor to ceiling windows. The 90R is classic Ocean Alexander, transformed for a new era.”

Also in the spotlight at FLIBS, the Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence concept, which is scheduled for on-water premiere at the Miami International Boat Show in February 2019 and slated to arrive in Australia mid-year 2019.

“The 45 Divergence is a customisable, 45-foot luxury sport boat which combines performance and style,” said Todd. “Unique in its class, the 45 Divergence will impress with its bold design, array of features and unprecedented level of comfort for a boat of its size.

“Multiple variations of the cosmetic appearance of this unrivalled sport model mean owners have the opportunity to transform this vessel to suit their specific requirements – whether that’s island hopping, entertaining, diving or fishing.”

Back in Australia, Alexander Marine recently delivered a new OA85 open flybridge motor yacht to ecstatic Melbourne owners, who plan to base their vessel at Hamilton Island and enjoy east-coast cruising with friends and family.

“They chose the OA85 for its volume which distinguishes it in its class, its superior engineering, bluewater cruising ability, and superb quality of construction.”

Arriving on our shores in early 2019, the head-turning Ocean Alexander 88 Skylounge will captivate boaties looking for expanded social spaces, impeccable craftsmanship and long-range cruising capacity.

Released to commemorate Ocean Alexander’s 40th Anniversary, the limited edition OA88 Skylounge has a similar accommodation layout to the four-stateroom and two crew cabin layout of the OA85 and boasts a larger galley and adjacent forward settee lounge area, plus an enclosed skylounge for all weather onboard living and entertaining. The OA88 Skylounge is also equipped with a high/low swim platform and a luxurious spa bath on the top deck.

Once arrived, the OA88 Skylounge will be available for immediate delivery alongside a stock OA70e. The 70e is a feature-packed model offering a four-cabin layout, spacious flybridge, multiple entertaining areas and spectacular views compliments of the supersized saloon and lower accommodation glazing.
