These are the boats you won't want to miss at the 28th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Ocean Alexander, with the launch of its OA 120, opens a new chapter in its 34-year history. The alluring new flagship was developed over a period of five years—from the first conversation with designer Evan K. Marshall—and debuts at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
Johnny Chueh, who has headed the Ocean Alexander group since 1999, is a creative thinker and a man with a head for numbers. He is building a multifaceted company in which yacht manufacturing represents only about a third of the group’s revenues. These days, Ocean Alexander has its own dealerships in its main export markets and owns waterfront real estate in key areas.
Ocean Alexander’s new 120, now in the final stages of construction at the Christensen yard in northwest Washington State, will debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The Ocean Alexander 120 will be the yard’s new flagship and marks a major step for the company.
