New 70E is the first production Ocean Alexander model to be built in the United States.
US firm Alexander Marine and its European distributor Giaroli SAS, have revealed details of the new Ocean Alexander 70E, the first model of Ocean Alexander’s new Evolution series. The 21m yacht is the first production Ocean Alexander model to be built in the United States.
Pencilled by Evan K. Marshall, the new 70E is said to incorporate luxurious details and amenities in a compact yacht, which is designed to be handled by an owner-driver.
“She’s a heavily built, luxurious, high-tech and well-supported yacht”, says Giampaolo Murzi, Giaroli president and official importer for Europe, Russia and Turkey for the Ocean Alexander brand.
Murzi continues: “The clients value the 70E’s powerful propulsion, comfortable interiors with enormous windows. Plus, she is quiet and vibration-free. Like all other models of the brand, she is delivered with the inclusion in the final price of a turnkey package, which is also appealing and much appreciated. The standard version has a hydraulic swim platform, a hardtop, IPS drives with joystick and more.”
The 70E is built at Merritt Island Boat Works in Merritt Island, Florida. The yacht has a vast main salon with a panoramic unobstructed view and filled with natural light.
In addition, Ocean Alexander’s 70E will be powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1200 900-horsepower engines. This model will be one of few motoryachts in this size to be equipped with pod drives.
“In combination with dynamic exterior lines, sophisticated naval architecture and lightweight construction they allows the boat to reach 27 knots,” the company claims adding that the range at 15 knots is well over 300nm.
