Home Broker's Best 1991 Ocean Alexander 52 Pilothouse

1991 Ocean Alexander 52 Pilothouse

by Randy Woods

This jewel of a find from Boynton Yachts is fit for fall cruising, with a fully enclosed flybridge and spacious upper deck.

This 30-year-old gem has had just three loving owners and is in tip-top condition. Dubbed the Searenity, the Ocean Alexander 52 Pilothouse can sleep six people in three staterooms with two separate heads.

The cozy salon, with satin-finished teak interior, is located aft and has wall-to-wall carpeting atop parquet flooring, plus an L-shaped settee on the port side. Guests can gather at the hi-lo teak, glass-top coffee table and relax with an entertainment center, featuring a 40” Samsung TV and a Kenmore stereo connected to speakers and intercom throughout the yacht. For internet capability, the boat also has a Wineguard Wi-Fi booster.

A curved staircase connects to the pilothouse, which has a cruising hi-lo dinette table with a raised bench-style settee. The pilothouse doors open to both side decks, which can aid the captain in docking procedures. The helm is equipped with Seastar hydraulic steering and a suite of Garmin navigational electronics, including a Fantom 24” radar dome, an 8612XSV chart plotter with an engine monitoring system, a 215 VHF radio, and an N2K compass. Other controls include bow and stern thrusters, Robertson AP200DL autopilot, an Azimuth digital compass, a Vesper 8000 AIS transponder/GPS antenna and Wi-Fi, and an NMEA 2000 data system.

A fully enclosed flybridge is accessible by either the staircase from the pilothouse or via ladder on port side of cockpit. A custom-designed canvas and Strataglass enclosure was installed in 2020, with a sliding glass door and two side windows. Flybridge electronics include windlass controls, bow and stern thrusters, and an Apple 12” iPad for remote-control of the Garmin chart plotter

The U-shaped galley is located down two steps from the pilothouse, with a SeaFreeze 20-cubic-foot refrigerator/freezer, a Princess three-burner electric stove and oven, a GE SpaceSaver microwave, a Broan trash compactor, and a garbage disposal.       

A spacious upper deck provides plenty of room for entertaining. At the stern, a 12’ AB tender RIB, with a console station and a 40-hp Tohatsu outboard, is secured to a Nick Jackson transom davit system. For added fun on the water, the Searenity also has a wide swim platform and two kayaks. 

Belowdecks, the forward master stateroom includes an en suite head with a Vacu-flush toilet and a stall shower. Aft to starboard is a similarly appointed guest head that is shared by two guest cabins further aft. One guest cabin has a double berth and the other has two large stacked berths and a Frigidaire LC-120 washer/dryer. All accommodations feature designer fabrics, pillows and shams.

The whole Searenity package is driven by Twin Detroit Diesel 6V53TI engines that produce a total of 800 hp. She cruises at 14 knots and does 19 knots flat-out.
