With the 100 Skylounge, Ocean Alexander introduces a superyacht that, within “just” 100 feet, combines quality, elements and solutions that put it to the same level as a definitively larger boat. A clear example of this is the stunning master cabin that, positioned in the fore deck, literally bewitched us during our visit to the Miami Yacht Show.
However, the Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge is not only able to astonish the observer and delight those who are lucky enough to enjoy a cruise around the world on board this yacht. She is also a well-balanced yacht that guarantees the typical intimacy of a boat that wants to be enjoyed with both friends and family.
This is an element that makes the 100 Skylounge a perfect compromise for both private and luxury charter cruising.
Climbing on the Sky Deck, we find the Skylounge, which this superyacht is named after. This deck is split into two different sections – one open, the other closed – each equipped with a bar area and a table with sofas where guests can enjoy moments of comfortable relax as well as a spectacular view of everything around the 100 Skylounge.
As soon as we enter the main deck, we are welcomed by a large open space that encloses a salon a living room, both tastefully decorated and embellished with fine warm wood elements.
However, what makes the main deck, and maybe the whole yacht, really unique is the Master Cabin that occupies the whole forward surface of the deck. The master cabin is an amazing design solution; it overlooks the bow and, thanks to a crystal window, offers a breath-taking panoramic view all around.
This area is very bright and leaves the observer speechless not only thanks to the incredible view it offers but also with the high comfort level and the dimensions of its spaces.
The cabin is huge and equipped with a double king-sized bed, an elegant desk and a L-shaped sofa on the starboard side.
If standing in this space, designed for the exclusive use of the master, is like getting lost in the reading of ” One Thousand and One Nights”, the happy ending can be found by going down a few steps.
Under the window, in the middle of the forward section of the master cabin, a ladder leads to the bathroom that, with its dimensions and decorations, can be compared with a suite of a luxury 5-star hotel. The floor is made of processed marble and both shelves and wardrobes are made of fine lacquered wood.
Even more sophisticated are the double washstand embedded in a unique marble slab and the huge shower box closed by a crystal door. Passing the bathroom and moving forward, a sliding door gives instant access to an extra large walk-in closet that, with its design, has nothing to envy a haute couture showroom.
The lower deck consists of two areas divided by a central engine room. The fore zone is the biggest one and accommodates the guest area that, in the version we visited, offers 4 double cabins. The two bigger ones are equipped with double beds while the forward ones are twin-bedded. Each cabin, as expected from a yacht like this, is equipped with an en-suite bathroom.
The forward part of the lower deck is dedicated to the crew and houses three cabins.
Guests’ privacy is guaranteed by a perfect circulation on board. The two areas, indeed, have independent entrances; the crew zone has a dinner and a galley.
