The 27.48-metre 28R motor yacht from Taiwanese builder Ocean Alexander represents yet another one of its fruitful collaborations with seasoned American-born and London-based superyacht designer Evan K. Marshall, sporting naval architecture by the Livorno-based studio Arrabito Naval Architects. With the Revolution series already well known in the industry thanks to its impressive interior volume, we take a look at what makes the 28R so special.

Just some of her top features include a new full-width main deck for expanded onboard living space, a massive on-deck master suite, a stylish, newly designed beach house – and the list goes on!

Starting from the outside, the 28R’s distinctive vertical bow serves to expand her available living space, whilst still maintaining her high performance, with power to the vessel provided by twin MAN V12 1900 hp engines for a maximum speed of just under 24 knots.

If it’s rest and relaxation you’re seeking, you could do worse than spending an afternoon in the spacious bow lounge. Located forward of the main deck, this space is home to a roomy sun pad and a large settee ideal for soaking up the best of the sun’s rays, cocktail in hand, and enjoying panoramic ocean views.Photo: Ocean AlexanderPhoto: Ocean Alexander A sumptuous saloon

Enter through whisper-quiet automated doors which open at the touch of a button and take in the floor-to-ceiling windows, light oak finishings and high-gloss ebony and walnut moulding which help to create an open and relaxed atmosphere.
