With the 85 Motoryacht, Ocean Alexander redefines the motoryacht, combining classic semi-displacement hull design with contemporary elegance. Equally perfect for a family sport weekend or a private escape to sea and sun, the 85’s genius is in the details.
Her interiors offer an abundance of light, space and luxury. Finishes and fittings are the same as those in exclusive residences throughout the world. Large windows let the sun spill in and create dramatic panoramas wherever you go. The 85 supplies ample room for guests to roam at parties, and quiet below decks when you need a break from all the activity.
While the 85 marks a new era in design, it still brings Ocean Alexander’s acknowledged heritage of engineering for safety, performance and comfort.

ENGINEERING GONE ELEGANT
Engineering keeps Ocean Alexander high on every list for performance, longevity and market value.
Fine engineering is what made their mark in the world. Engineering keeps Ocean Alexander high on every list for performance, longevity and market value. It’s why captains and crews love us. It’s why owners choose us more than once.
Buying a yacht demands investigation, intelligence and a rigorous set of standards. But Ocean Alexander know there’s more. The right boat will work its way into your psyche and into your dreams.
So question the 85. Look into every aspect of her engineering, all four of her staterooms and her impressive crew quarters. Charge your captain to do a thorough checkout. The 85 invites all that and more. And when you’re done, you’ll find she’s stolen your heart.
The world looks brand new when you’ve escaped to the water.
Just outside the aft double doors is the reason everyone loves a yacht: the world looks brand new when you’ve escaped to the water. The Ocean Alexander 85 helps you take full advantage of it.
The aft deck can handle a busy family, including dogs and kids, with custom safety gates to keep them from accidentally entering the transom. Eight can enjoy dinner outside, and the built-in wet bar makes it a spot to feature when you’re entertaining.
