History of Ocean Alexander Yachts
Luxury yacht builder Ocean Alexander traces its start to 1977 when entrepreneur Alex Chueh inherited the seeds of the company from a friend who couldn’t repay a loan Chueh had arranged for him. The friend asked Chueh to take the shipyard as payment instead. Chueh soon met boat designer Ed Monk Jr., and Ocean Alexander was born. In 1978, the company delivered its first vessel, a 50-foot fibreglass motor yacht designed by Monk. Johnny Chueh, son of the founder, took over leadership of the company in 2000.
