Ocean Alexander Will Debut New Model Built in the United States
SEATTLE, WA – July 28, 2015 – Alexander Marine International, the importer of Ocean Alexander yachts, is pleased to announce the design and construction of a new motoryacht model, the 70E, which will be built in Florida.
The 70E is the first model of the new Evolution Series of yachts by Ocean Alexander. It’s being built in a state-of-the-art facility using the latest technologies to refine and improve boat-building, located in Merritt Island, Florida. The Evolution series is designed by Evan K. Marshall, world-renowned naval architect, who first began designing for OA with the Megayacht line and has updated and refreshed the current line-up of all new OA yacht models.
“The 70E is an example of the evolution within the Ocean Alexander product line. It’s an evolution in our design, in the engineering, how it’s built, as well as where it’s being built,” explains Richard Allender, Director of US Operations. “We looked at the entire industry and decided there was a need to build a product uniquely suited for a specific market and to position it so that we’re able to meet rapid supply demands in yachts of this size range. We were able to find a facility with incredible technologies to build this boat in a ground-breaking fashion and we’re all very excited for the debut.”
The construction has begun on the first Ocean Alexander 70E with the anticipated world debut at the 2016 Miami International Yacht & Brokerage Show. Significant features for the 70E are:
• First OA Model to be powered by Volvo IPS POD Drives
• Options to stow a tender on the flybridge or on the swim-platform
• Open layout for the main deck allowing unobstructed views from salon forward to the helm
• Standard 4-stateroom design maximizes guest versatility
• Incredible flybridge exterior living/entertainment space
More information for the 70E will be released as we approach the world-debut.
