2008 Ocean Alexander 74 Open Flybridge Motor Yacht

North Palm Beach, Florida


Don't Miss This Beautiful and Superbly Maintained 74' Ocean Alexander!

The 74’ OA shares the same platform that later became the 78’ OA. So, she has very similar space and amenities as what is now categorized as the 78.

Knotty Girl has been owned and operated by a knowledgeable yachting family, and day to day upkeep and maintenance has been done by the captain/mate.

She is loaded with upgrades and updates including the optional CAT C-32 1650hp engines. All routine services were just done as well as the cooling systems serviced and updated. Total engine hours are exceptionally low.

This is a 3 stateroom plus crew layout. There are his and hers heads in the master, full heads with shower in the VIP and guest staterooms, a salon day head, and crew quarters with full head and shower.

Loaded with electronics and equipment including a recently upgraded Octoplex distribution system.

Knotty Girl is seriously for sale and priced accordingly.

Please click on full specs to view all of the details. 

Conveniently located at our North Palm Beach docks.
