The Ocean Alexander Motor Yacht 112 is a tri-deck superyacht that was produced by the award-winning Taiwan-based yacht firm Ocean Alexander between 2014 and 2020. Designed by iconic naval stylist Evan K. Marshall, this sleek and modern yacht impresses with a profile that is at once sharp and curvaceous, aerodynamic and assertive. Powerful engines and a rugged hull make this a superb option for enthusiastic long-distance cruisers, while sedate interiors crafted by industry legend Roberto Lottini add a touch of Italian glamour and huge dose of palatial comfort.
The flybridge on this model may not be the biggest, but with so many al fresco lounges across this yacht’s three above-the-waterline decks, it doesn’t need to be. Covered with a hardtop canopy, you’ll find a U-shaped sofa with a couple of teak-topped cocktail tables as well as an elevated jacuzzi-spa pool with 360-degree elevated views. One level down and you will find a forward sofa with a drinks bar out in front of the pilothouse, while to the rear of this space there is a sundeck with a side dining sofa, a walk-in wet-bar with an Electrichef barbecue grill and a Uline fridge, and space to the rear for sun-loungers or tender storage with a Steelhead Marine hydraulic davit. Step inside the pilothouse and you will discover that this space is not strictly about piloting: it also features a swish cocktail lounge with a sofa and an Art Deco-inspired minibar with speckled granite surfaces. The yacht’s main helm features a trio of Garmin multi-function touchscreens with integrated autopilot and radar, Side Power bow and stern thruster controls, Vector Fin stabilizers, a marine camera, engine feedback, a Ritchie compass and Stidd helm chairs.
An incredible amount of teak-lined outdoor space is available across the main deck, with a secluded three-zone sunpad out on the foredeck just a taste of what is on offer down here. To the rear there is a sprawling shaded cockpit with a pair of connected L-shaped transom sofas hugging twin breakfast tables that can be joined together, while side steps lead down to a full-beam swimming platform at the stern. On the port-side side-deck, meanwhile, you will encounter a fold-out bulwark that can easily be transformed into a fold-out cocktail terrace.
Floor-to-ceiling glazing, lowered bulwarks and sliding glass doors to both rear and port provide plenty of natural light across a sophisticated main-deck salon lined in an array of precious and exotic woods in lacquered, veneered and satin-polished finishes. There are cushioned wall panels, blue-and-white marble bulkheads, backlit ceiling crowns, hand-finished cabinets and glass-topped tables in here, along with an L-shaped sofa, a pair of armchairs, a dining table for up to ten guests and a twisting metal and stone staircase up to the bridge that is a real architectural highlight.
An enclosed Euro-style galley with a dinette lounge features a four-zone Wolf induction hob, a Wolf convection oven, a Thermador microwave, marble and granite surfaces, a wide Sub-Zero fridge with a water dispenser, wine coolers, an ASKO dishwasher, an icechipper and a double Blanco sink. Ahead of this you will discover a main-deck, full-beam owner’s stateroom with sloped glazing, a side sofa, a work desk, a king-sized bed and a sunken bathroom with two walk-in dressing rooms, a whirlpool bathtub, ceramic sinks, steel fixtures, backlit mirrors, marble surrounds and a fully enclosed shower cubicle with bench-seating.
There are up to four more en-suite staterooms across the lower-deck, including two vast double cabins, though one of these can be exchanged for a lower-deck gym room. Rooms on this level feature dark wood surrounds, mullioned windows and full-height closets, while a separate crew quarters for up to five hosts its own galley, lounge and head facilities.
A pair of ultra-powerful 260mhp MTU 16V 2000 M94 diesel shaft-drive engines turbo-charge this vessel to top speeds topping the 26 =-knot mark, with super-smooth cruising speeds clocking in at 17 knots. Drive this vessel a little slower at a trawler-like pace of 10 knots, meanwhile, and you will be astounded by a range of some 7,500nm, making this sturdy vessel a real globe-trotter.
