Open or closed bridge? That is just one of a string of options available to owners of Ocean Alexander’s 84R, a yacht created with customization in mind.

The R is for Revolution, and this model follows on the heels of this past year’s flagship in the line, the 90R. The 84R is the result of a collaboration between the builder, its longtime design partner Evan K. Marshall in London, and Arrabito Naval Architects in Italy.

Some other owner choices include interior woods. In the case of Hull No. 1, debuting this fall, it’s an oak-and-ebony scheme in high-gloss and satin finishes. Buyers can also have a stone sole in the galley. In fact, five earth-tone stone styles are on board Hull No. 1, creating countertops, backsplashes, heads and more.

Other notable options include electrically operated shades and three electrically operated helm seats—as opposed to mechanically adjusted ones—a bridge-deck Jacuzzi, Side-Power ­hydraulic stabilizers, and teak decks.

One of the Revolution line’s trademarks is a vertical bow, allowing this 84-footer to carry a fair bit of her ­20-plus-foot beam forward. This design choice results in increased internal volume.

To that end, four staterooms are belowdecks. A full-beam master is ­amidships with views outside the trapezoid-shaped hullside windows flanking the stateroom. A king-size berth is on centerline. His-and-her heads are abaft the berth’s bulkhead, with the placement insulating the ­master stateroom from the engine room’s noise. The forepeak VIP has a queen-size berth that faces aft, diagonally from starboard to port. The setup optimizes floor space. Like the master, the VIP has an en suite head. Abaft the VIP to port and starboard are two guest staterooms, both en suite and each with twin berths measuring 33 inches wide by 76 inches long.

As with the forward stateroom, the yacht’s sense of volume is also found in the salon, where headroom averages about 6 feet, 11 inches. Almost 360 degrees of glass surrounds the main deck, enabling unimpeded ocean views.

A yacht in this size range will likely cross open water. For strength at sea, the 84R is built via resin infusion with structural foam, fiberglass and carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is applied to high-stress areas and used in construction of the sky lounge. Aluminum beams in the bulkheads and ceiling further strengthen the yacht.
