Alexander Marine International, the importer of Ocean Alexander yachts, is delighted to announce the sale of four Ocean Alexander 70E boats prior to its world premiere at this year’s Yachts Miami Beach show, running from February 11 to 15. During the event, the exciting new vessel will be on display on Ramp 6, slip 1213.
Beautifully penned by Evan K. Marshall, the 70E represents the first model of the new Evolution Series of yachts by Ocean Alexander. Moreover, the vessel is the first Ocean Alexander model built in the United States.
All four yachts were sold by the Seattle dealership, Alexander Marine USA. Ray Prokorym secured the first sale for the 70E. The new owners of the first-ordered 70E are new to the Ocean Alexander brand. Prokorym commented: “They are moving up from Prestige 550, and wanted something more heavily built, luxurious, high tech and well supported. They were looking at the typical euro bands such as Sunseeker and Ferretti. The 70E checked every box for them and they valued the high-tech propulsion, the system integration, lots of social seating, and turn-key aspect of the yacht.”
Jerry Todd secured the second order for clients that are also new to Ocean Alexander. “The clients previously owned a Navigator and wanted to move into something slightly larger, but it had to meet a list of requirements. The boat needs to be quiet and vibration-free, they wanted an open floor plan on the main deck and lots of windows,” said Todd. “These owners are serious boaters who put 250-300 hours on their boat annually. They plan to take delivery at the factory in Merritt Island and cruise for a season exploring the East Coast, Bahamas, and have plans to make the Great Loop. It’ll be brought back to Seattle as the home port.”
The third and fourth orders were both secured by Niel Steenkamp. One owner is moving up from a 62’ Ocean Alexander and the other is new to the brand, moving up from a Sea Ray 510. Both families wished larger yachts to better accommodate families and friends who travel with them while boating. Steenkamp commented: “Both clients were looking for an Ocean Alexander in that size range and the 4 staterooms sealed the deal. More features that impressed them after seeing the boat at the factory is the spacious interior, the foredeck seating and the overall quality of the build. Performance played a big role as well. The boat has to be seen in real life to be really appreciated. The renderings in the brochure and video can’t capture the true volume of the space.”
