MarineMax expanded its lineup with the addition of Ocean Alexander yachts in all locations from Texas east.

MarineMax is now the exclusive dealer for Ocean Alexander in the region, offering all models ranging from 72 to 155 feet.

Ocean Alexander has manufacturing facilities in Taiwan and the United States.

“We are excited about expanding with Ocean Alexander,” MarineMax CEO Bill McGill said in a statement. “The brand has been increasingly recognized by the American buyer as one of the preferred yachts of choice among those looking for a traditional luxury yacht. The quality, craftsmanship, engineering and design are very appealing and the broad range of yachts allows our customers to stay in the MarineMax family as they grow their boating lifestyle.”

“Choosing the right dealership to represent our brand is one of the most crucial decisions of the business,” Ocean Alexander Yachts U.S. operations director Richard Allender said. “MarineMax has long been recognized as the largest recreational marine dealer in the U.S., and their extensive network of service marinas brings assurance to our yacht owners that buying and maintaining a new Ocean Alexander will be an efficient process. With numerous locations along the eastern seaboard, this new representation by MarineMax will create greater exposure to yachting enthusiasts for the Ocean Alexander brand.”
