It looks like Alexander Marine has done it again with their newly released Ocean Alexander 70 Evolution motoryacht. This luxury vessel strives to provide the accommodations of a 100-footer in a high-performing, 70-foot package. The 70E appears to have hit the mark just in time for the Pacific Northwest boat show season and we couldn’t be any more excited!
The exterior is all class with a non-skid deck, complete with a 1,500-pound capacity swim platform and removable swim ladder, connected via staircase to the flybridge. Port and starboard boarding gates make coming aboard a piece of cake, with or without armfuls of groceries and water toys in hand. The helm at the flybridge puts the captain firmly in control of the dual Volvo IPS 1,200 engines, a full 1,800 horses at command (900 horsepower each). The pod drives with joystick control allow for easy maneuvering in close quarters. The new 70E is fully equipped with the Volvo Digital Positioning System (DPS) to allow you to hold a position. DPS utilizes GPS while you are able to set lines and fenders or waiting for other reasons. The skipper also has a complete Garmin navigation suite with two screens at the flybridge, and two in the lower station below, at his or her disposal. Garmin 12KW open array radar, autopilot, VHF, AIS, marine cameras (one in engine room and one aft), 5” Richie Compass, and more really strike the “Evolution” theme home. This boat brings the best of 2016 advancements to classic Ocean Alexander design.
The interior is a thing of beauty. The spacious salon, complete with woodwork and a LCD 50” TV screen, features enlarged windows to let in the light. The boat features a four-cabin layout in addition to a crew quarters if desired. A king-sized berth is the star of the show in the master stateroom, which also holds a surround sound system for the LCD 32” TV, cedar-lined hanging locker, two nightstands, and private head with stall shower. The galley is fully loaded with all the amenities, so one not only can live like a king, but feast like one too.
The Ocean Alexander 70E is clearly the new darling of the Alexander Marine USA fleet. Check her out if you can. Contact Alexander Marine USA for pricing if you’re interested.
