Ocean Alexander 70E to feature Volvo IPS pod-drives
Fitted with Volvo Penta pod-drives, the new Ocean Alexander 70E is expected to officially launch at the 2016 Miami International Yacht and Brokerage Show.

The first motoryacht in Ocean Alexander’s new Evolution Series will feature Volvo IPS pod-drives and is already in-build at the company’s Florida, USA factory.

The Ocean Alexander 70E is a new design for Ocean Alexander Australia and New Zealand, penned by naval architect Evan K. Marshall. Marshall previously worked on the Ocean Alexander megayacht range.

Richard Allender, director of US operations, said the Ocean Alexander 70E was an example of the evolution within the Ocean Alexander product line.

"It’s an evolution in our design, in the engineering, how it’s built, as well as where it’s being built," Allender said.

"We looked at the entire industry and decided there was a need to build a product uniquely suited for a specific market and to position it so that we’re able to meet rapid supply demands in yachts of this size range.

"We were able to find a facility with incredible technologies to build this boat in a ground-breaking fashion and we’re all very excited for the debut."

Expected to launch at the 2016 Miami International Yacht and Brokerage Show, the Ocean Alexander 70E will include tender storage on either the flybridge or swimplatform.

An open layout will provide unobstructed views from the main deck, plus a four-stateroom design for guest versatility and a massive flybridge/exterior living space.
