Yachting first met the Ocean Alexander 85E in 2011. It offered a modern exterior look for the builder, while retaining a traditional motoryacht interior.
Several exterior elements were noteworthy, including the reverse transom, house-length side windows, and raked nature of everything from the radar arch to the window pillars to the hardtop supports.
Accommodations included four staterooms with a full-beam master, plus two cabins for crew.
At press time, there was one Ocean Alexander 85E for sale: a 2011 model with an asking price of $2.948 million.

“The salon makes good use of loose bucket chairs and built-in settees to create a conversation area or a comfortable media room in which to view the 40-inch pop-up TV in the after corner. Large windows all around and the twin stainless- steel doors aft give everyone a good view, even when seated. I liked the toe switches for the electric salon doors. Anyone carrying a tray of food or drinks won’t have to do a balancing act.” —Yachting, July 2011
