The Evan Marshall Designed 90R Revolutionizes Ocean Alexander’s Legacy
Ocean Alexander is touting their all-new 90R as a yacht unlike anything ever built. Our initial impressions of this stunning new 27-meter yacht cannot contest their claim. Her full-width main deck and 22′ (6.7m) beam provide impressive space for the salon, galley and on-deck master stateroom. Plus, an Ocean Alexander first: the beach club which provides an expansive entertaining space with a wet bar at level with the massive swim platform. The 90R boasts numerous entertaining spaces across 3 different decks, plus an open and enclosed bridge option.
Ocean Alexander previously announced in 2012 their move to paint all new yachts exclusively with the full Alexseal system. Alexseal’s industry-leading support and our portfolio of easily applied and ultra-durable finishes has no doubt allowed our relationship with Ocean Alexander to blossom.
The 90R is just the first in the yacht builder’s new Revolution Series: a collaborative design between the offices of Evan K. Marshall and Arrabito Naval Architects, both of which are world-renowned for yacht design and naval engineering. Designer Evan K. Marshall has revolutionized the style and layout of Ocean Alexander in the new 90 R while still maintaining the renowned sea-going capabilities that have marked Ocean Alexander’s 40-year legacy. This bold new direction for the esteemed yacht builder will make her debut to the world at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on F-Dock, opening Wednesday, October 31st.
When asked about the project, Marshall explained, “The design for the new Ocean Alexander 90R has provided my design office with one of our most exciting and rewarding challenges to date. It builds on our long-standing collaboration with one of our closest partners in which we have over the period of seven years comprehensively developed a new signature design styling for both the interior and exterior of the company’s product line, placing them at the forefront of the yachting industry.”
The new 90R boasts multiple layout options with 3 or 4 staterooms below the standard on-deck master in addition to a well-appointed crew quarters aft that includes an efficient galley and separate salon area. Like every Ocean Alexander, the 90R exudes luxury from every surface from plush leather seating surfaces to warm wood furnishings and accents. Another revolution taking place in the 90R is her use of the all-new 10V-2000 series M96L engines from MTU which produce an impressive 1,600 hp each and propel this yacht to a top speed of 21 knots. Additional engine options include 12 and 16-cylinder units from MTU that can produce an estimated 24 and 29.5 knots of speed respectively.
It is humbling to know our coatings products have helped protect and add beauty to every Ocean Alexander yacht splashed since 2013. As we prepare to celebrate 15 years of providing solutions to the global yacht market, we congratulate Ocean Alexander on 40 years of yachting heritage. The 90R represents a revolution in the design of Ocean Alexander’s fleet, but their DNA of luxurious, seakeeping and beautiful yachts will always remain.
