Available for SaleSlow Dance48' 2006 Ocean Alexander 

The Ocean Alexander 48 Classico, Ed Monk Jr. NA design, is the hard-to-find aft cabin long distance cruiser. With the twin 240 hp Yanmar diesel engines she has "long legs" for miserly cruising distance and a bow thruster for easy handling.

The large fully enclosed flybridge has an L-Shaped dinette and twin helm seats, providing comfort in all weather conditions.

This twin-cabin model, each with head and separate shower, has an aft cabin with walkaround queen berth providing long term liveaboard comfort. There are many upgrades from washer/dryer to salon ice maker to name a few.

She has already leisurely completed the "Great Circle Loop" and is now home in the Gulf.

Continually maintained with new bottom paint (May 2021) and batteries (July 2021) she is ready to go cruising again.

Brokeru0027s Comments

As mentioned this couple purchased new from OA dealership and had custom upgrades built by OA to specifically to do the “Great Circle Loop” which they did in comfort. Already experienced cruising sailors so very knowledgeable in their decision making. Not only is this a seaworthy, reliable boat, but very comfortable with enclosed FB and easy to maneuver when they do get to shore with the bow thruster!
