New Model: Ocean Alexander 60 Trawler Series

Ocean Alexander present the 60 Trawler Series, second new model in this new line of explorer yachts presented in the just past year. The 60 Trawler is actually an extended version of the slightly smaller 54 with the same beam, and draft, but having a longer hull which gives a larger flybridge and more spacious aft deck. The flybridge will give extra space for your tender toys, while the aft deck grants more area for Al Fresco entertainment. It's interior layout is also the same as the smaller 54 with the split level saloon welcoming you on the main deck featuring an L-shaped settee, galley, and dinette with dual seated helm station to fore. Below is two generous cabins, with a mid ship located stateroom for the owner, and a VIP guest suite to fore. There is also a rather large utility room. Although not communicated the rather large 5300 litres and single 300hp Deere engine should give a rather long range, of which I imagine enough to do trans Atlantic crossing. An optional of twin 455hp Caterpillar which should give faster 14 knots top speed but less range is also available. The design is of the Ocean Alexander 60 Trawler Line is at the hands of Evan Marshall, Ed Monk, and Desty Darr.
