The Ocean Alexander 112 was the flagship of the manufacturer’s FLIBS display.

Alexander Marine International, the U.S. importer for Ocean Alexander yachts says it had record sales at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

Scott Roberton, a yacht and brokerage sales executive with MarineMax Yachts in Clearwater/Tampa sold the Ocean Alexander 112 to clients who were first-time buyers for the manufacturer. He also delivered an Ocean Alexander 70e to a new client, who moved up from a Sea Ray 55 Fly.

Don Aultman of MarineMax Stuart put the new Ocean Alexander 90 Revolution under contract prior to FLIBS and finalized the transaction during the show. Additionally, Aultman collaborated with Mike McCarthy of HMY on a deal on an incoming Ocean Alexander 100 to be delivered at the end of this year.

“MarineMax enjoyed an extremely successful FLIBS,” Chuck Cashman, chief revenue officer of MarineMax, said in a statement. “Several of our brands have reported record sales. One brand that stood out was Ocean Alexander. Our team’s passion and commitment for the brand, supported by Ocean Alexander through exceptional product, new innovative designs, an unparalleled service after the sale has allowed us to have a record show. Our customers are loving the opportunity to grow within the MarineMax family and Ocean Alexander offers a wonderful range of choices as they expand their boating needs.”
