The result of the collaboration between Evan Marshall and Arrabito Naval Architects, the “R” motoryachts of the American shipyard are definitely one among the most interesting novelties of the international yachting scene.
Just like the 84 R, the Ocean Alexander 90R is offered in two versions: Open and Enclosed. The Open version, which we had the opportunity to admire during the last Miami Yacht Show, features an almost completely open flybridge which will be particularly appreciated by all those looking for an amazing seaview penthouse. This version clearly suggests the attention of the American shipyard towards a clientele that prefers boats with a Mediterranean vocation, designed to sail in warm climates.
On board the Ocean Alexander 90R Open
Once on board the Ocean Alexander 90R Open, the visitor can immediately realize how the designers have successfully achieved a very important objective. The lines of the boat enclose volumes of surprising amplitude inside, without however appearing too heavy from the outside.
Bright spaces, with large windows and furnishings in warm tones, make the Ocean Alexander 90R Open a true “must have” for anyone loving the sea and wishing to enjoy it in total comfort and luxury. We immediately realize that when, once on board, we note that the stern box is actually equipped like a dinette. This area is a natural continuation of the stern platform, perfect to relax in close contact with the sea.
We cannot resist and climb immediately on the fly, one of the pearls of this boat, to find out how the open version is a significant advantage for those who, during the cruise, do not want to give up spending most of the day outdoors, without however sacrificing a protected area for the helm station.
The fly and its rooftop are both accessible through the ladder positioned on the starboard side of the cockpit. Here, the guests can enjoy a long bar counter, a galley, a wide dining room and even a Jacuzzi integrated in the stern sundeck. If you want to have a cocktail or a party on board, alone or with a large number of guests, the fly of the Ocean Alexander 90R Open will not disappoint your expectations and will leave your friends amazed.
The helm station is located in the central part of the flybridge, and you will soon discover why we strangely define it as central. This is a closed space which, in addition to three pilot seats and sophisticated instrumentation, also houses a small dinette to let guests enjoy navigation from a high and sheltered positioned.
The helm station also offers an additional staircase leading to the main deck, so as to guarantee a central and totally covered access to the flybridge while two side doors give instant access to the bow cockpit. The latter is on the same level as the flybridge because, below, there is the master cabin on the main deck. The bow cockpit is an additional seaview open-air living room, equipped with a large sun pad, a central table and a comfortable sofa. Thanks to this layout, the flybridge has a truly amazing surface area and, despite developing on a single level thanks to the structure of the center console, it offers two distinct areas which convey a high level of privacy. We got enchanted by the spaces of the flybridge and, this time from the side stairs, we return to the main deck and head towards the stern cockpit.
The main deck
And it is precisely on the main deck that another pearl of the Ocean Alexander 90R Open takes shape.
We find ourselves in front of a wide and elegant living area, a dining room located opposite cocktail cabinet with a marble top and a cool icebox and, big surprise, a huge modern and fully-equipped galley perfect for those who do not want to give up cooking while remaining convivially connected with the other guests.
The master cabin which, as we said, is located on the fore section of this deck, consists of a king-sized double bed, two walk-in closets and two bathrooms connected by a central shower cabin. The master cabin is embellished with two full-wall windows, on the starboard and the port side, which provide it with great brightness, an exclusive dream view and a considerable privacy level since they are directly positioned on the deadwork.
The lower deck of the Ocean Alexander 90R Open
The lower deck of the Ocean Alexander 90R is available in multiple layouts, offering the new owner many customization possibilities. The model we visited at the Miami Yacht Show had two twin-bedded cabins in the bow, a VIP double cabin and a master cabin, both equipped with two bathrooms. Every cabin has enough space to store clothes and accessories.
Moreover, the aft section of the lower deck houses, separated by the engine room, a crew area with cabins and exclusive dinette. This way, privacy is guaranteed.
There’s no much to add. The Ocean Alexander 90R Open is a yacht designed for those who want more. Featuring a flybridge with a clear Mediterranean vocation, she is the best option for anyone looking for a yacht with the same comfort as a seaside penthouse without however exceeding in length.
