The Ocean Alexander 84R breaks with tradition to create a spacious, family-friendly motor yacht. Anticipation is building ahead of the launch of the second model in Ocean Alexander’s Revolution series, the 84R.
The Ocean Alexander 84R bridges the gap between the successful 70E and the larger 90R.
Slated for world premiere at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) from 30 October 2019, the Ocean Alexander 84R is destined for Australian shores next year, where she will no doubt steal the spotlight upon debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May 2020.
The Ocean Alexander 84R follows on from the 90R, which was among the most anticipated launches at last year’s FLIBS.
While the 84R is the smallest sibling in the Revolution fleet, soon to be joined by a 110R, she is nonetheless as contemporary looking as the 90R.
She features the swooping fashion boards, which is one of the signature features of the revolution series, combined with chiselled moulding details combined with gentle curves all of which combine to create a balanced and elegantly modern looking yacht.
“With the design of the 84R we decided to develop the features of this boat to transition from the very popular open deck interior plan of the 70e and combined that with the modern interior design features and materials found in the larger 90R,” said Ocean Alexander President, Johnny Chueh.
“We made a conscious decision to cater to buyers who are looking for a yacht that offers a relaxed family-oriented layout,” he continued.
“This approach has created a spectacular feeling of space allowing areas to be distinct yet merging together which has created an expansive open feeling interior. This is combined, as with the 90R, with an abundance of floor to ceiling windows and glass throughout so that in the daytime, the main deck will be bathed in sunlight with spectacular views out to the sea from every area.
“This is a significant break with ’tradition’ compared to the previous Ocean Alexander 85. This yacht is designed to meet the modern requirements of boating lifestyles.”
At a length of 25.45m, the 84R is available in open and enclosed layouts, was designed by Evan K Marshall and Arrabito Naval Architects in collaboration, who also designed the 90R. The enclosed model comprises a cosy skylounge, whereas the open version has a partially enclosed helm, seating area, and bar.
With a beam of 6.29m, the vertical bow of the 84R adds volume to the VIP cabin in the bow. Other design features on the new model include extra-large saloon windows and numerous seating areas for entertaining and relaxing. The flybridge has an alfresco dining setup, sun lounges, bar, BBQ grill and jacuzzi. There’s also generously sized banquette seating and sunpads on the foredeck.
Inside, finely crafted exotic wood panelling conceals the 84R’s copious storage and an open galley is adjacent to the separate formal dining area. Below decks, there is the VIP forward with ensuite and full walk-around Queen bed and walk-in wardrobe, full-beam master stateroom midships with his ‘n hers ensuite, and two twin rooms, each with ensuite.
According to designer, Evan K. Marshall, the Ocean Alexander Revolution series represents a “leap forward” in vision, design and the brand’s legacy.
“Drawing on the hallmarks of Ocean Alexander, we have maintained the continuity, while introducing a new styling language,” he said.
“Everything was rethought. We started with a clean sheet of paper with the Revolution series. As a designer, I was thinking about how I would use the boat with my family and friends – swimming, enjoying a cocktail, seeing the stars, watching a movie, entertaining, seeing the fish in the underwater lights at the transom.
“We added so many features to these models, all based on the different facets of your boating lifestyle. That was our goal and we have achieved that in the 90R and now, the 84R.”
