The Ocean Alexander 74 is a 77-foot luxury motoryacht with a flybridge by award-winning Taiwanese shipyard Ocean Alexander between 2007 and 2011. A classic, sporty design from naval stylist Ed Monk Jr. emphasizes sharp lines, plenty of glazing and a wealth of al-fresco lounge spaces. A hand-finished interior of only the very finest materials, meanwhile, has been crafted by Evan K. Marshall and offers an abundance of comfortable and stylish places to relax as you engage this yacht’s powerful engines to voyage far and wide in search of your watery utopia.
A sculptural hard-top canopy offers a good amount of shade over the front portion of this yacht’s flybridge, keeping the upper helm and forward lounge cool. There are a pair of Stidd helm chairs facing a central dashboard, a C-shaped ultra-leather sofa surrounding an oval dining table as well as space for an integrated wet-bar station with a grill. To the rear of the bridge there is masses of space for a water tender and other sports equipment, with a Steelhead Marine davit used for unloading from your Ocean Alexander Yacht.
A modular sunpad out on the foredeck is without doubt the sunniest spot on the boat, while a shaded aft-cockpit to the rear comes lined in washed teak and features a pair of transom loveseats, room for a table and another wet-bar console. Curving side steps lead down to a fixed swimming platform with stainless steel guardrails.
Sliding glass doors lead into a sedate and tasteful salon lined in varnished Sapele mahogany and veneered Sakura cherry with soft carpeting underfoot. There is an L-shaped sofa, a trio of armchairs and a bespoke coffee table in here, while a mirrored and cushioned bulkhead separates this room from the pilot-house and walk-in galley. The kitchen features granite or marble counter-tops and a range of appliances from high-end brands such as Jenn-Air, Fisher Paykel, Gaggenau and Broan. The pilothouse hosts a curved dining sofa with a table and a centrally positioned dashboard with a trio of Furuno NavNet display screens, a Nobletec Navigation system, KeyPower bow and stern thruster controls, Stabilizer switches, an oversized steering wheel, VHF radio, a map desk and a leather-clad piloting seat.
There is room for up to six overnight guests across three lavish en-suite cabins on the lower-deck. A port-side twin berth never feels cramped and comes with a side-locker and a bedside table, while a VIP double to the bow impresses with a skylight and two cedar-lined closets. The full-beam owner’s stateroom is a real work of art, boasting glossy timber surrounds, mirrored wall panels, a king-sized bed, bedside cabinets, plentiful storage, room for a work-desk or side sofa, a huge wardrobe and a double bathroom lined in marble or granite with a waterfall shower cubicle.
A proprietary semi-displacement, carbon-fiber infused hull offers a stable and efficient ride, while a pair of 1150MHP Caterpillar C-18 ACERT diesel engines provide top speeds of up to 21 knots with cruising speeds clocking in at approximately 17 knots. Optional upgrades include twin 1600MHP MTU 10V engines with increased speeds and quicker acceleration, while a fuel tank holding up to 2,000 US Gallons of diesel should give you enough power for ambitious island-hopping trips without needing to refuel.
