Ocean Alexander 37L Yacht Tour & Review | YachtBuyer

Published 2023-03-19
Welcome to the largest and most expensive yacht we’ve toured to date, the Ocean Alexander 37L. The “L” stands for Legend so let’s hope it lives up to its name!

In this in-depth review and walkthrough tour, filmed at the 2023 Miami Boat Show, Jack Haines has an all-access pass to this near 120ft, 150-tonne leviathan, including one of the most amazing owner’s staterooms we’ve seen on this size of yacht.

The tri-deck design incorporates four guest cabins on the lower deck plus sleeping space for 6 crew in a well-designed quarters. The main deck is home to the salon and galley and, right forward, the spectacular mezzanine owner’s stateroom. The bridge deck includes the helm station and a classy upper lounge with direct access to a sprawling aft deck and a stairway to the sun deck.

The standard engines are 1,900hp MAN V12s but the show boat had twin 2,600hp MTUs for a top speed of 23 knots and, thanks to a 20,000-litre fuel capacity, a range of 1,200nm @ 10 knots.

    OA is certainly a great boat. I have to mention that I had toured another of their boats a few years ago. What you can see looks great. I looked under a hatch in the lower hall and had to say I was disappointed at the lack of attention to detail of the fittings and interior hull finish of the fiberglass - there were lots of shredded strands all about. In this video, everything looked so great and it just seemed a bit off on a $22 MM boat to go from Bosch in the main galley to a Kenyon hob in the crew. Really? This kind of thing makes me want to look in every cubby out of concern.

    Well. The Horizon FD110 was my favourite big boat to date, it may now be in second place. What a vessel, absolutely gorgeous.
  • Terry Walker
    Fantastic boat. I was expecting it to be gaudy, but it is actually very classy. Can't fault it. Great review too! Much nicer than the Horizon...
  • Paul Murphy
    Jack, gotta love the way you just don’t tell us that you can walk between the cockpit tables, you demonstrate.

    Attention to detail!
  • Hello Jack, many thanks for this tour. Well done again! In my opinion this is one of the best production super yacht in the market. I am quite taken by she... I never had the opportunity to jump onboard but I think the overall quality is very high, isn't it?

    Love Ocean Alexander, especially the RJ series. That galley though...for such a large yacht it seems rather small and lacks equipment. I could be wrong, but having come from yachts and seeing what is needed on charters, there is space that could be utilized with specialized equipment. Overall though, a great charter yacht for a couple weeks or to take over as a liveaboard for a season or two
  • The_Arby
    Lovely yacht and cleverly designed too 🙂
  • The.Tranquility
    This yacht has some amazing storage capabilities. The utility room under the owner suite has been copied from Absolute ;.)
    Yes, I would opt for a proper tender garage and bigger fuel tanks

    Would go for the Horizon FD as the bow is much better and there seems to be more space for garage. The negative windowas of the wheel house are better in sun
  • Louise Slote
    Beautiful finishes. Love the layout! Is there any cold storage on the Yacht? Perfect review, will there be an article?
  • Brian Miller
    Love the owners cabin but I still prefer the Horizon over this one. The salon dining room and galley area is much roomier on the horizon. I also prefer the helm of the horizon with the forward racked windows a much better design. The main salon area seems a bit cramped on the Alexander especially with the staircase in there. Like both of them but its horizon all the way

    Cracking boat and a cracking review, as always.
  • Godly Object
    Great review! At that price point though, it's a tough sell when stacked up against the Benetti B.yond 37m, in my opinion.

    By the way, Jack, where was your mic during this? Sounded good but I couldn't see it and I became curious, thanks.
  • Jimmy
    Lovely yatch. Good planning and that master suite with almost an extra room is great. Skip the extra toilet for one more walkin closet. Superb.
  • Awesome yacht ... hmmm. very hard to choose, .. but I would go with the FD110.. unless compared with the OA35R...
  • WOW
    If you want an argument, I do not have one! Well just one! Could sacrifice a little fridge space for more fuel capacity! Good god man what was there 15 fridges, coolers etc? Beautiful Yacht! Excellent review! Really looking forward to an article on that one!
  • Gregory Thoman
    I prefer this boat to the FD110, by far. I am not a fan of Horizon. Thanks, Jack!
  • Всего 1200 миль на 20 000 литрах топлива. У этой яхты зверский аппетит!
