As the fourth-largest yacht production facility in the world as of 2021, Ocean Alexander has distinguished itself in the mid-category yacht production industry. Their commitment to technology, design, and safety in construction remains unrivaled. Frequent references to the aerospace industry are made because their computer-aided design technology achieves millimeter precision.

RHYTHM ‘N BLUES has had only one owner who upgraded many options from the factory specifications with an open checkbook. Notable upgrades include the MTU engines, an integrated touchscreen Hatteland navigation module with Skyhook, and a beautifully appointed helm station extension with robust air conditioning. The full dining table and bar allow guests to socialize with the captain while enjoying an elevated ocean view. RHYTHM ‘N BLUES has always been professionally maintained by a crew of two, showing like new. She is overbuilt with redundant systems for headache-free long-range cruising.

    Manufacturer Provided Description

    It’s a temple for sun worshippers.  A swift, unshakable guardian in weather.  A quiet, opulent cruiser with an enormous wealth of standards – and beyond, plenty of intriguing, no-charge options.  It’s the Ocean Alexander heritage, safety and craftsmanship you must have; combined with the wide-beam freedom and nimble speed you want.

    When we tank-tested the new hull at Sea State V, it proved its mettle.  And when the designer began dreaming up its innovative interiors, Ocean Alexander pulled out all the stops, from exotic wood cabinetry to the gleaming stainless of its exacting engine room.
