Alexander Marine Australia are pleased to present this Ocean Alexander 78 'LV III' to the market as worldwide central agents.

She is a rare offering in Australia being the only 78 cruising our local waterways. Being an Ocean Alexander, who is now the 4th largest motor yacht builder in the world by way of vessel output, 'LV III' benefits from superior engineering and finishes including her full two-pack paint finish to her hull and superstructure. Her Ed Monk Jnr naval architecture delivered a hull that is dry and soft for incredible blue water performance (and whisper-quiet at anchor too!!) - indeed 'LV III' has cruised Tasmania and Nth Queensland thus far having originally being delivered new into Florida. She handles our challenging Australian boating conditions with ease given her excellent build quality and features redundancy for remote area cruising. The 78 was a highly successful model for Ocean Alexander and 'LV III' is hull number 19.

Some signature features of this model include wide walk-around decks, plus 'LV III' has been further optimized so as it's dog friendly (including the flybridge area) - We don't want man's best friend to miss out on all the fun.

Stepping aboard 'LV III' is via dual access steps up from the extended teak laid hi/lo swim platform (making her now 83ft in length overall), or via a dedicated border ladder that stows on board. The hi/lo swim platform is equipped with beach umbrella's so as to serve as the beach club for relaxing down by the water. Her tender can be stowed on either the hi/lo platform (for short passages) or otherwise is stowed up top on the boat deck (for crossing oceans). 'LV III' is equipped with zero speed stabilizers for comfort underway and at rest. Access to the crew cabin and through to the engine room is possible via a centreline watertight door off the hi/lo swim platform. Secondary access to the crew cabin and engine room, when at sea, is via an entry out of the cockpit.

Her teak-laid cockpit offers plenty of weather protection courtesy of the boat deck above and is complemented with clears (plus a separate privacy mesh system) for all-weather boating. This area is teak laid and flows nicely into the saloon via polished stainless steel automatic doors.

The saloon features signature Ocean Alexander craftsmanship and recently refreshed soft furnishings. Her oversize L-shaped sofa to starboard, plus large ottoman, make for a relaxing environment in which to watch some TV or read a book. The saloon area offers plenty of cupboard storage space (as does the whole boat), and also houses the ship's audiovisual rack. Her closed bulkhead design is well suited to long passages as "off-watch" guests and crew relaxing in the saloon are well separated from the captain (especially at night) should he or she be taking advantage of the climate-controlled lower helm station. Immediately opposite the saloon sofa, on the port side as you move forward, is the day head.

Once forward of the saloon, you enter the galley and pilothouse space. The galley is positioned to starboard and is an entertainer's delight. It's huge - with supersize cooking appliances including a Jenn Air including French door full height upright fridge. The all-weather centreline helm station is equipped with all the necessary Furuno navigation equipment at his or her fingertips and offers the skipper great visibility. To the port of the helm there is a settee and table which is a handy space in which to enjoy a snack, and or keep the captain company while underway - or both!

Access to the lower deck guest accommodation is via a staircase to the starboard side of the helm. Down below you will find three spacious cabins - especially the master cabin. The oversize mid-master is a haven of relaxation. Each of the three guest cabins are ensuited. Crew accommodation is aft under the cockpit sole.

Her spacious flybridge is accessed from either an internal staircase in the pilothouse or from a ladder from the cockpit if you are wet! The flybridge helm station offers amazing views. The flybridge area is an entertainer's delight, and enjoys considerable protection from the elements courtesy of a larger GRP hardtop and clears to three sides. The layout includes a bar for serious entertaining!! The tender cradles are removable so once the tender is deployed (or stowed down on the hi/lo platform) the boat deck becomes a spacious sun-lovers paradise. Needless to say, the elevated views from this large area will keep everyone entertained while the cold beverages flow.

Like all Ocean Alexander, her machinery space is impressive. Twin Caterpillar C-18's are the perfect power plant for this vessel offering impressive sprint speeds up to 21 knots when required. 'LV III' has multiple duplicated systems including two Kohler generators. For long-range cruising, she naturally features laundry and water-making equipment. She is equipped with a wireless Yacht Controller docking remote, and hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, for ease of docking. 'LV III' is maintained to a high standard and is complete with a detailed service history.

'LV III' enjoyed a range of updates in 2020 including a comprehensive soft furnishings refresh which has her presented beautifully, whilst maintaining her traditional interior styling. Also, a full suite of lithium batteries were installed in 2020 offering amazing performance benefits over traditional lead-acid systems. 'LV III' is professionally crewed, and therefore presented turn-key ready for her next owner to go boating tomorrow.

Having cruised the boat internationally prior to her Australian owner bringing 'LV III' home, she is equipped with power conversion equipment that permits plugging into any voltage anywhere in the world should her next owner wish to continue worldwide cruising. She is GST and duty paid in Australia. She is Cayman Island flagged.

Upon inspection, you will observe she offers the volume of a much larger yacht in all areas of the boat.

Inspection by appointment won't disappoint. Register your interest now for an inspection. For a comprehensive briefing on all the features of this boat, and all her optional extras, please contact our office on 07 5618 0000 or at sales@alexandermarineaust. Com. Au to secure a private inspection.
