For those looking to make a step up in the 70-foot range, Worth Avenue Yachts has Forever Intrepid, a 2016 Ocean Alexander 72, listed at $2.695 million. 

Boat owners Michael and Jeanne Wilkins could be the inspiration for the next owner of this 2016 Ocean Alexander 72 for sale. The cruising couple, who owned 30- to 40-foot boats, worked their way up to their own Ocean Alexander 72, Yachting previously reported. “They started looking at Ocean Alexander 68s. Their broker suggested they build new instead. “I said, ‘Gosh, we’d never order a new boat. That’s just not going to happen,’” Michael recalls. “This past winter, in Seattle, they took delivery of their Ocean Alexander 72. It was customized with the galley layout Jeanne preferred, the open flybridge steps Michael wanted and a redesigned flybridge layout for dinner parties.”

The motoryacht’s Evan K. Marshall-designed interior has a warm ambiance throughout thanks to rich satin finishes, light neutral tones and natural light from an array of windows. Entering the salon through the sliding glass door, there is an L-shaped sofa to starboard and lounge chair forward. An L-shaped bar forward and to starboard makes serving guests at happy hour seamless.

Past the forward bulkhead and up a few steps is the pilothouse, which has the galley to starboard, L-shaped dinette to port and helm station forward. The lower helm station has a single helm chair. A pantograph door to starboard offers side-deck access, a nice touch for owner-operators or when shorthanded cruising. The galley has a Kenyon electric cooktop and an array of JennAir appliances, including, an electric oven, a dishwasher, a refrigerator and a microwave.

There are two major outdoor entertainment spaces on board Forever Intrepid: A dining area in the cockpit and a two-person sun pad on the foredeck. For those who want to change up the scenery, launch the 14-foot Novurania tender via the 1,500-pound davit on the flybridge and any beach, sandbar or shoreside eatery are within reach. The forward section of the all-weather-capable flybridge has an isinglass enclosure. The two-seat helm station is forward with a wet bar abaft and to port and an L-shaped dinette to starboard.

There are three staterooms belowdecks, including a full-beam master stateroom amidships with private access via salon stairs to port. Amenities include a king berth, a 46-inch flat-screen TV, and an en suite head. Forward, the forepeak VIP has a centerline queen berth and an en suite head. The third guest stateroom has over-under berths, making it a great space when the kids are in tow.
