As the remainder of 2017 dwindles to a handful of months, many yacht builders are touting their 2018 lines. Alexander Marine is no exception, and the company has announced that the 2018 Ocean Alexander 100 Motor Yacht will be making its Seattle/West Coast debut sometime during the upcoming year. With a clear emphasis on comfort, comfort, and comfort, the 100’ motoryacht’s lavish accommodations look well suited for well-to-do private owners and as a high-end chartering option for a company.
As one might expect, the exterior is striking. From the swim step aft (complete with safety rails), a guest can move forward via a set of stairs set to both port and starboard of the island transom. Once in the cockpit, many exploratory options open up. An inviting family-style table is built into the island transom itself, and it is amply covered from the elements by the flybridge overhead. Running forward on both port and starboard are large, well-protected walkways to the foredeck. The foredeck features seating with concealed pop-up lighting and speakers to set the mood, and a table converts to a sun pad.
Also accesible from the cockpit is a flight of upward stairs that lead to the expansive flybridge and skylounge. A dinghy davit makes the flybridge the likely home base for the tender, while the skylounge has the amenities of an entire yacht with its 48” LED flip down TV, wet bar, sofa with table, day head, and complete nav station.
But that’s just a taste of the exterior, for the interior more than keeps with the luxurious style. A notable design feature of this new 2018 model is the new layout that features dual master staerooms. One stateroom is located on the main deck and the other on the lower deck. Berths are found in the master stateroom (king size), the lower deck twin VIP stateroom (two queen-sized berths), two additional cabins with twin berths, separate crew quarters with en suite captain’s cabin, and two more crew cabins aft.
The galley is designed for the demands of a popular charter vessel (or hungry owner and guests) and is fully decked out with everything one could ask for ranging from refridgeration to stowage. The 100 is not purely luxurious comfort, however. Alexander Marine is quick to boast of its unique aluminum-beam support structure engineering, which should give the vessel very solid bones. The twin MTU diesel engines dish out a total power of 3,840 horsepower that should do the job.
If you’ve got some pocket change and are in the market for 2018, the Ocean Alexander 100 Motor Yacht is a high-end luxury yacht you may want to look at. The 100 is expected to arrive to the Pacific Northwest in the coming months.
