Ocean Alexander 73-footer will debut at Newport show

The show opens Thursday and continues through Sunday.

MarineMax, the exclusive Ocean Alexander dealer from Texas to the Eastern Seaboard, said the all-new Ocean Alexander 72 Pilothouse will make its boat show debut later this week at the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the magnificent Ocean Alexander 72 Pilothouse to this prestigious boat show,” MarineMax Ocean Alexander brand manager TJ Rose said in a statement. “This classically styled yacht offers the discerning yachtsman a wider beam with more living space and spectacular views from the panoramic salon windows.”

The show opens Thursday and continues through Sunday.

MarineMax said Ocean Alexander designed the 72 Pilothouse with a more efficient hull that improves performance and reduced fuel consumption. Wide side decks produce safe transitions from stem to stern and the raised pilothouse offers a clear nearly 360-degree view from the helm.

“Private showings of the Ocean Alexander 72 Pilothouse at the Newport International Boat Show will be by appointment only,” Rose said.
