Voluminous, modern, bright and with an exaggerated skydeck. Designed to meet the needs of international market and increasingly attentive to fashion, the new Ocean Alexander 84R makes its debut at FLIBS.
Her spaces can make those who are looking for a 100-footer change their mind; sure, this might be a problem only for few but…seeing is believing!
We visited the yacht during its official presentation which took place on the skydeck of the first unit produced and exhibited at the boat show.
It is no coincidence, it is sufficient to stop and observe to understand why the presentation took place right here, as inventor and Chief of US Operations Richard Allender points out: ” I think it is interesting, look around you, there are 25 of us in the skylounge of a 84-footer, I’d like to start from this…”
The skydeck, in fact, is divided in two parts: a covered one, with steering console and a living zone, and an outdoor section, with galley, open-air bar and relaxation area (pool included). The surface is surprisingly large. Only this indoor/outdoor deck could be a complete boat of a very good size. Moreover, this area offers a 360-degree panoramic view.
The Ocean Alexander 84R and the Revolution line
The Ocean Alexander 84R is a boat that diverges somewhat from the traditional concept of boats, as the name of the Revolution line suggests. The search for large volumes is the core of the project and the spaces, arranged in a linear fashion, are furnished with attention to detail, in a fresh and elegant way.
The spaces convey a feeling of dynamism, especially when entering the salon of the main deck, where the visitor is transported in a very natural way between the living area, the bar counter, the galley opposite the dining table as well as an additional bow-facing relaxation area.
The interiors are permeated by a very American young style where all spaces are inter-connected without barriers so that the passengers can enjoy all the moments of the day in a convivial way, which is a factor that the US public takes into consideration.
Very different, instead, is the configuration of the lower deck. Here, in fact, the spaces are well-divided, especially in the master cabin which is undoubtedly the flagship of the deck. The master cabin is full-beam and positioned amidship, fitted with a king-size bed, two walk-in closets (one on each side) and two bathrooms which, although with separate access, are connected by the spectacular shower box positioned in the middle. The master cabin is therefore a comfortable cabin with modern design and functional spaces for both him and her.
Three other cabins – a twin-bedded and a double VIP one in the bow – complete the guest area, all equipped with en-suite bathroom.
Finally, the aft section of the lower deck accommodates two crew cabins, both accessible from a separate staircase. This area is completed by one bathroom, a galley with burners and a direct access to the engine room. The latter houses two MAN V-12 engines, 1,900HP each, which, thanks to the volumes and the headroom available, can be easily reached for any maintenance interventions.
