From 5–6 February, Alexander Marine Australia – the exclusive dealer for Ocean Alexander and Galeon Yachts in Australia and New Zealand – will hold an Open Weekend at Southport Yacht Club to view an impressive 2021 line-up of luxury motor yachts.
The Ocean Alexander display line-up includes the 45 Divergence, the revolutionary 26R and the limited edition 88 Skylounge, while the Galeon line-up boasts the award-winning 510 Skydeck and the 640 Fly.
The Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence has capacity for up to 16 people. At anchor, the cockpit bulwarks can fold out to expand the usable recreation space and enhance an alfresco entertaining experience. Hidden swim ladders also make it the ideal day boat for all water sports.
“The 45 Divergence is a customisable, 45-foot luxury sport boat that combines performance and style,” said Todd Holzapfel, Dealer Principal/Director at Alexander Marine Australia.
“There’s a real appetite in Australia and New Zealand for a powerful, versatile outboard-powered boat that does double duty as an adventure vessel for diving, fishing, wakeboarding, island hopping and luxury day boat.”
The Ocean Alexander 26R features bold looks, sleek lines, chiselled moulding details and European design. Her open-plan design caters to buyers who are looking for a yacht that offers a relaxed family-oriented layout with the main deck living areas spread out across the entire deck.
Chueh says, “The 26R is designed to cater to buyers who are looking for a yacht that offers a relaxed family-oriented layout. This approach has created a spectacular feeling of space, allowing areas to be distinct yet merge together for an expansive, open-feeling interior.”
According to Holzapfel, the new Ocean Alexander 26R will strike a chord with cruising families in Australia and New Zealand.
Also on display at the Alexander Marine Showcase at Southport Yacht Club is the 40th Anniversary special limited-edition Ocean Alexander 88 Skylounge.
She offers a four-stateroom and two-crew cabin accommodation layout. Boasting a large galley with adjacent forward settee lounge area, huge enclosed skylounge that permits all-weather entertaining, complemented by a luxurious jacuzzi on the aft top deck.
Her interiors offer an abundance of light, space and luxury. Finishes and fittings are the same as those in exclusive residences throughout the world. Supersized windows let the sun spill in and create dramatic panoramas wherever you go.
As Chueh explains, “The OA88 displays the hallmarks of all Ocean Alexander yachts: the highest quality throughout, no compromises on engineering and seakeeping ability, while each yacht is constructed with an oversized drive train, rudders and general structure.”
Holzapfel says, “With is size and additional Skylounge, the OA88 is ideally suited to the Australian boating lifestyle. It’s a true superyacht, yet with the joystick control, it can be easily managed by an owner- operator.”
He continues, “There’s no doubt the OA88 Skylounge will be equally at home in Sydney Harbour as it is cruising the east coast to the Whitsundays, and with several generously sized spaces dedicated to socialising, including the massive skylounge, the 88 Skylounge is the ideal entertainer.”
The Galeon 510 Skydeck combines the advantages of a flybridge, yet with the distinct sporty look of a coupe. She features an enormous electric sunroof over the lower helm, and likewise an electric retractable soft roof over the Skydeck when it’s time to enjoy this elevated area of the boat.
Another great feature of this model is the utility room, which is accessed from the swim platform via a watertight door.
This air-conditioned area contains additional refrigeration, a wet head, access to the engine room and is generally a convenient space to store surplus cruising spares. The 510 Skydeck model offers a three-cabin accommodation layout.
The Galeon 640 Fly offers an innovative approach to layout and space.
The spacious cockpit dining space, serviced from the adjacent aft galley, is an ideal space for entertaining and socialising.
