Ocean Alexander yachts will debut the Ocean Alexander 84R at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The 84R is the second model of the new Revolution Series of yachts by Ocean Alexander. It’s a collaborative design between the offices of Evan K. Marshall and Arrabito Naval Architects, both of which are world-renowned for yacht design and naval engineering. The first model of the series, the 90R, debuted last year to incredible reception at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
When asked about the project, Marshall explained, “With the design of the 84R, we decided to develop the features of this boat to transition from the very popular open deck interior plan of the 70e and combined that with the modern interior design features and materials found in the larger 90R.”
He continued, “We made a conscious decision to cater 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. This approach has created a spectacular feeling of space, allowing areas to be distinct yet merging together which has created an expansive open-feeling interior.”
“This is combined, as with the 90R, with an abundance of floor to ceiling windows and glass throughout so that in the daytime the main deck will be bathed in sunlight with spectacular views out to the sea from several areas.”
As is the hallmark of all Ocean Alexander yachts, the 84R will also highlight exceptional furniture detailing, combining a mix of materials including satin and high-gloss wood veneers, high-gloss lacquer finishes and Cambria stone flooring and counter surfaces.
The 84R, as with its predecessor offers a spectacular full beam sky lounge which is one of the largest in its class. Aft of the sky lounge is a generous aft deck which can feature a hot tub and sunbathing area combined with loose furniture for relaxing and dining. The aft deck also features a full buffet with BBQ grill and wet bar.
For those buyers who still prefer to have an open flybridge arrangement this is also available and takes full advantage of this enormous deck, offering the same features as the enclosed sky lounge, creating a spectacular alfresco space with the same features.
The exterior of the 84R shares several of the Revolution series design feature, particularly the vertical bow. In addition to creating a modern cutting-edge look, combined with a performance enhancing piercer bulb, this feature, as with the 90R has allowed us to increase the volume of the lower deck accommodations.
This is particularly visible in the VIP stateroom which includes a full walk-around queen bed, small sitting area and vanity desk combined with a walk-in wardrobe and large en suite bathroom.
