Carlisle Royale, a 2015 Ocean Alexander 85, has four staterooms, a 2,000-nautical-mile range, 23-knot speed and is asking $3.69 million.

The salon has an elegant vibe, accented by wood veneers and cabinets in a diamond wood-grain pattern. There is a custom dining table and granite countertops at the wet bar and the TV cabinet. Side and forward windows allow natural light into the salon and allows guests who are seated at the port side L-shaped sofa to enjoy panoramic views. Enjoy a bottle of wine from the wine cooler located inside the cabinet, while dinner is being prepared. Sliding glass doors offer direct access to the cockpit.

The galley is located forward of the salon in an open arrangement. I thought I preferred an aft-galley arrangement, but after seeing the layout of Carlisle Royale, I’m torn. With quick access to stairs going from the pilothouse to the flybridge, owners can quickly access the festivities up top while also entertaining guests in the salon and the cockpit. It’s a smart setup. Large countertops with a stainless-steel sink provide plenty of room for meal prep, and an electric cooktop, microwave and oven allow owners to prepare meals while cruising. Stow cold goods in a full-sized, 36-inch Jenn-Air refrigerator, and galley accessories/dry goods in the numerous cabinets. Clean up is made easy with a Whirlpool garbage disposal and under-counter dishwasher. Take a coffee break at the breakfast nook forward of the galley. 

The motoryacht’s single-seat lower helm station is located forward and to port with side-deck access via a pantograph door. Carlisle Royale has a hefty 167,000-pound, blue-water ready displacement, but this yacht can run when desired. Powered by twin 1,600 hp MTU diesel engines, this 2015 Ocean Alexander 85 will spool up to almost 24 knots. Throttle back to a leisurely 10-knot cruise speed and range extends to around 2,050 nautical miles. Some of Carlisle Royale helm technology and upgrades include:

  • Keypower hydraulic bow thrusters
  • Keypower hydraulic stabilizers 
  • Hydraulic steering system
  • Furuno DRS12A Radar
  • Furuno GP33OB GPS
  • Furuno Navpilot 700
  • Furuno M604A VHF
  • Furuno Fishfinder DFF1
  • Furuno AIS with NMEA GPS
  • Furuno FA70001A Multi-station system

Carlisle Royale’s flybridge is protected by a fiberglass hardtop with an electric sunroof over the helm. Fire up the grill and cook a few hamburgers for lunch, there plenty of seats are available at the C-shaped cushioned settee with table. Or entertain guests from the wet bar while watching a baseball game in the open-air environment. Relax in the Jacuzzi tub on an evening jaunt down the coast, or launch the tender for an excursion to a private beach.  

The yacht’s swim platform and aft deck have barefoot-friendly teak soles. Enjoy a meal in the shade on the aft deck’s cushioned bench-style settee with table, or walk around to the foredeck to enjoy some fun in the sun on a set of sun pads. Take a dive into the ocean from the swim platform, which also has plenty of room for a couple to sit out and catch a few rays.  A set of stairs on the aft deck provide easy access to the flybridge.

After a long day of entertaining, owners can retire to one of four staterooms. The owners’ stateroom has a king-sized berth with en suite head. Two night stands, a built-in vanity on the port side and a sofa to starboard offer the comforts of home. His-and-hers sinks, a shower, a vanity and heated bathroom soles add to the elegance. There’s also a VIP stateroom with a queen berth and en suite head as well as guest staterooms with single and double berths.
