Ocean Alexander is set to debut its all-new Ocean Alexander 28 Explorer at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Australia this week.

The 27.74 explorer is an evolution of the 27E and will be attending the yacht show after making a splash earlier this year. The Explorer range, which was first unveiled at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in 2020, builds on the shipyard's Revolution series offering great volume and capacity to carry toys and tenders.

The first Ocean Alexander 28 Explorer features a five-cabin layout with a master suite on the main deck, four cabins on the lower level and a triple crew cabin aft. Other premium features within its 163GT include a penthouse-inspired skylounge with a wet bar, barbecue and Jacuzzi on the aft deck, and a spacious saloon with dedicated lounging and formal dining below.

An oversized swim platform comes into its own once the tenders are launched and transforms into a sun lounge and watersports hub with a fold-down bulwark on the starboard side. 

The Taiwanese builder teamed up with long-time collaborator Evan K Marshall for the exterior and interior design of the Explorer line.

"These remarkable yachts expand the exterior space for socialising and entertaining family and friends, and are designed to bring a multitude of toys with you to maximize exploring opportunities on long journeys to exotic locations," the shipyard said.

Speaking on the Australian debut, Alexander Marine Australia dealer principal and director Todd Holzapfel said: "Ocean Alexander Yachts provide for amazing comfort and safety in our often-challenging sea-state conditions. The team is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the world debut Ocean Alexander 28 Explorer to our shores. She will be the ultimate vessel for exploring oceans with family and friends.”

The Ocean Alexander range now spans three model series – Revolution, Legend, and Explorer. The builder reported a "healthy and robust" 2021 with double-digit growth.
