Uncompromising – Ocean Alexander 72

Norris Comer New Boats New Stuff

“We do not compromise” seems to be a theme with Ocean Alexander yachts, and the 72 is no exception. There’s plenty to look at aboard, from the covered flybridge with sun deck to a customizable interior that gives new meaning to the word decadent. The three-stateroom pilothouse layout features visibility to the outdoors from just about every angle, and a galley fitted for gourmet dining is situated aft of the helm. There are two helms aboard the 72, one in the pilothouse and one on the flybridge, and both feature sleek navigational displays and design.

The interior is light and roomy with a master-stateroom complete with king-sized berth that feels like a luxury spa treatment ready to happen. A seven-foot deep shower in the master stateroom is nicer than the ones found in most houses. The raised, 360-degree walkaround aft deck is complete with table, seating, and built-in wet bar. If it wasn’t for the beautiful ocean scenery, you may think you were in a five-star hotel.

OA 72 VitalsThe Ocean Alexander 72 builds off a successful, safe, and proven hull design that we’re sure to see more variations of in the years to come. The standard power package is a pair of Caterpillar C18 1150 horsepower engines that are paired with a Kohler 23 kW generator. Luxurious accommodations, great looks, and seaworthy design, why compromise? Base price is $3,750,000.
