At the core of every Ocean Alexander design, you’ll find an unwavering commitment to providing clients with the ultimate yachting experience. This is never more evident than in the newest addition to the Ocean Alexander lineup, the 28E, which made its U.S. debut at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October. This 28-meter (94ft) stunning vessel is the largest yacht in the Explorer series. And with such unique design features, it certainly caught the attention of interested clients and yacht enthusiasts alike.
The 28E’s signature feature is the multi-functional aft platform. Whether you’re swimming, diving, jet skiing, or simply soaking up the rays, this extended deck space is ideal for all sorts of water activities. The port and starboard sides have a fold-down bulwark that expands the beam to more than 26 feet. The hydraulic swim platform can lower water toys weighing up to 1,000 pounds into the water. But for larger tenders, the 28E is fitted with a crane that can lift up to 2,500 pounds directly into the water with ease. For those who enjoy fishing, the aft platform also comes equipped with a live bait well and sink. With 332 square feet of aft deck space, this yacht is perfect for those who love to make the most of their time on the water. Owners can create their own private beach without ever stepping off their yacht.
Stepping into the main salon, the 28E’s striking, modern design is met with the functionality owners crave in a yacht. The main salon has massive windows that give unparalleled views and emphasize the open-concept living and dining space. The galley is equipped with exquisite stone counters, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and ample room for provisions.
The on-deck master stateroom will simply take your breath away. A gorgeous skylight above the bed acts as the perfect star gazing spot for owners but, of course, has electric shades for privacy. If that wasn’t enough, the spacious head and walk-in closet make this space feel like a private getaway primed for relaxation and unwinding.
Moving below the deck, you’ll find four more staterooms. It’s in the forward VIP stateroom where the expanded space from the vertical bow is most noticeable. The queen-sized bed, private head, and walk-in closet emphasize the spaciousness of the room. Continuing aft, another stateroom is equipped with two twin beds that can either come together or stay apart to accommodate a variety of guests. And finally, you’ll find two more gorgeous staterooms that mirror each other. No matter which room your guests stay in, you will most certainly leave your guests feeling like royalty.
Not only will staterooms be found below deck but also a multi-functional utility room. This space can be utilized for fitness, storage, or laundry. A stacked washer and dryer, additional refrigeration and freezer, and plenty of room for fitness equipment or storage make this room customizable to the owner’s needs.
The skylounge houses the helm station with touchscreen Garmin navigation and other top-of-the-line equipment. Only the best of the best goes on an Ocean Alexander yacht to ensure efficiency and safety for every vessel. With unbelievable views, a comfortable seating area, and a bar, the skylounge is the ideal spot for entertaining guests. The outdoor space has a jacuzzi, grill, bar, and lounge areas and is sure to be the center of every party.
The 28E is more than beauty and luxury. It’s power as well. The 28E’s twin MAN V12 1650hp engines and 2,980-gallon fuel capacity will take you where you want to go. Comfortably cruising at hull speeds between 9-10 knots, the 28E provides a range of 1,200 nautical miles, allowing you to reach destinations near and far with ease.
Ocean Alexander continues to create, innovate, and produce the highest quality yachts, as they have done for the last four decades. The combination of bold design, world-class engineering, and an unswerving dedication to quality has produced a yacht that is unrivaled. The hope of the Explorer series is to encourage the freedom to explore. That being said, where will you explore next?
