MarineMax will debut the Ocean Alexander 112 this week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

MarineMax said today that it will launch seven new models at the 57th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which opens Thursday.

Among them are four Sea Ray models — the Sea Ray L550, Sea Ray Fly 460, Sea Ray Sundancer 460 and Sea Ray Sundancer 350 Coupe.

“All four new Sea Ray models reflect significant breakthroughs in innovation and design,” MarineMax chief revenue officer Chuck Cashman said in a statement. “I am especially impressed with the Sundancer 350 Coupe. It has an amazing array of features for a boat of this size and a choice of sterndrive or inboards. It is a sweet boat.”

MarineMax also said it will launch the Azimut Verve 40 with triple Mercury Verado outboards; the triple-deck, five-stateroom Ocean Alexander 112 megayacht; and the Galeon 660 Fly.

“The aggressively styled Verve 40 is a social animal with plenty of seating fore and aft connected by wide, deep catwalks along the port and starboard sides,” Cashman said.

“The new Ocean Alexander 112 offers bright, open interiors in new ways that entirely reflect how owners and their guests really use a boat of this magnitude: for privacy, luxury and intimate entertaining. And the Galeon 660 Fly features old world, European craftsmanship, combined with the latest innovations and technologies that results in a superbly built yacht in every detail.”
