American luxury yacht builder Ocean Alexander announced that it has sold three superyachts during Q3. Two yachts are heading to their new owners on the East Coast, and one new-build has been sold to the West Coast.
Scott Roberton from MarineMax Yachts sold an Ocean Alexander 85 to an existing client, who was upgrading from an Ocean Alexander 70e. Whereas, Kevin McCarthy from MarineMax Yachts in Fort Lauderdale sold an Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge to a new owner who was upgrading from a 2011 Ocean Alexander 90.
“The owner is that confident in the brand and was so impressed by his OA 90 that he bought the new 100 unseen. I sent him photographs of the updated interior, and that was all he needed prior to closing the deal,” stated McCarthy.
