Ocean Alexander Reports Historic Success from Fort Lauderdale Intl. Boat Show

December 2018 News Web Exclusive

Alexander Marine International, the importer of Ocean Alexander yachts, was excited to announce its record sales at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Ocean Alexander 112’ on display in the show was contracted during the show by Scott Roberton, a Yacht & Brokerage Sales Executive with MarineMax Yachts in Clearwater/Tampa.  Roberton met these clients for the first time at this boat show in the Ocean Alexander display.  The buyers previously owned an 88’ Marlow, and this is the first Ocean Alexander yacht they’ve purchased. “They loved how much volume the OA 112’ offers and that it’s a true tri-deck. They absolutely loved the main-deck master, the additional four staterooms below, and the ample crew accommodation,” Roberton mentioned when asked about this purchase.  

Roberton also contracted and delivered an Ocean Alexander 70e to a new client. “This is also the first OA for this buyer,” Roberton explained. “He moved up from a Sea Ray 55 Fly and was impressed with the space and amenities included in a yacht this size.  The 4-stateroom layout, spacious salon and entertainment areas, especially the large flybridge really captured his interest.” Roberton added, “He emailed me the other day as he made his way from Nassau and was arriving into Stanley Cay and said, ‘By the way, the boat is stupid amazing.’ I think that’s all you need to say about the OA 70e.”

When asked about this historic record, Chuck Cashman, Chief Revenue Officer of MarineMax, added, “MarineMax enjoyed an extremely successful FLIBS.  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, and 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.”
