Exclusive: New-look Ocean Alexander 90 yacht revealed
by Chris Jefferies and Cecile Gauert
Currently under construction on speculation and due to debut at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, this new 27 metre project features an almost vertical prow and extensive glazing across three decks.
“For many owners this is a departure,” Marshall told Boat International. “If we tried to do this five years ago, it would have been too much of a shock.”
Guests arriving on board via the large swimming platform will be presented with a glass-fronted superyacht beach club, accessed via sliding curved doors, which Marshall describes as a “destination space”.
Up one level and the shaded cockpit will offer an ideal spot for enjoying a light meal or a cocktail. Moving inside, the OA90 boasts a highly sociable layout, with a drop-down television that folds down from the ceiling. The main dining area will seat up to six guests, while sliding wall panels allow for the galley to be concealed when needed.
A full-beam master suite is situated forward, offering stunning views out to sea through floor-to-ceiling windows, while the lower deck offers a VIP cabin and two twin cabins taking the total accommodation to eight guests with the potential to upgrade to ten.
The design is capped off by an open-plan skylounge, with the superyacht wheelhouse blending seamlessly into the upper saloon and bar area. “We really have been able to achieve the look of a penthouse,” Marshall added. “She is not only a pretty face, but also very functional.”
Al fresco relaxation options include a split foredeck seating area with sunpads and a dinette, while the upper deck aft offers another bar area and two L-shaped settees.
Further details are being kept under wraps for now, with the engine installation and estimated performance figures undisclosed at this stage. Other superyacht projects currently under development at the yard include the tenth OA100 yacht, which is due to go on display later this month at the 2018 Miami Yacht Show.
