Ocean Alexander is known for building motoryachts that let owners traverse the globe in elegance. But that’s not all the builder can do, as recently evinced by the builder’s popular 45 Divergence center console. That platform has now been tweaked to become a 45 Divergence Coupe, that offers boaters a bit more protection from the elements.
The 45 Divergence Coupe has Ocean Alexander DNA all over it, with exceptional fit and finish for a boat of this size and class, including super-soft fabrics and intricate stitching on the upholstery.
One of the 45’s star features is its convertible bulwarks. In the cockpit, to port and starboard, the bulwarks fold out to create a party platform, increasing the boat’s beam from 13 feet, 9 inches to 19 feet, 1 inch. That means there is plenty of space to entertain.
Like other Ocean Alexander builds, the 45 Divergence Coupe was penned by acclaimed nautical designer Evan K. Marshall, who imbued the boat with a stepped sheer a steeply raked windshield that gives it a sleek, low-profile appearance.
The boat’s appearance fits her performance. With standard quad 350 hp Mercury Verados the Divergence Coupe should cruise in the neighborhood of 28 knots, consuming 61 gph, with a range of 316 nautical miles. At full speed, the vessel likely will top out near a very fun 41 knots. All four engines can move in unison, or move independently, split down the centerline.
As for interior comforts, the boat’s belowdecks area has 6 foot, 6 inch headroom as well as solid-wood cabinetry, large windows to either side and a skylight to help open the space up. There is a wetbar, GE microwave and Isotherm refrigerator to port, as well as a sink. A forward U-shaped settee with a high-low table handles indoor dining activities.
As for options, the 45 Divergence is available with wood choices, paint schemes and a Seakeeper 6 gyrostabilizer.
