In the latest episode of YachtWorld’s LEGENDS video series, we hop aboard the OA 32E, to explore her 3 levels of opulent living, 5 comfortable staterooms, expansive beach club with a glass-encased, air-conditioned lounge, a luxurious sky lounge with a full bar setup and an upper aft deck with jacuzzi hot tub and giant sun pads.

Drawing upon Ocean Alexander’s previous success with their 91-foot (28m) 28E yacht, the Taiwanese yacht builder has expanded their Explorer line with their latest 32E model, a stunning new 102-foot luxury superyacht. The newest addition to their current line up, this sturdy and attractive vessel has been designed for exploring coastal waters and comfortable long-range cruising. She made her debut at MIBS 2023 and is now on display at Palm Beach International Boat Show.

Design By Evan Marshall
Designed by renowned yacht designer Evan Marshall and his team, the OA32E features near 360-degree views of the ocean through floor-to-ceiling windows in her master salon, an abundance of stylish exterior lounge spaces and seriously impressive performance numbers that truly set her apart from the crowd.

Beach Club – Launchpad For Adventure!

One of the highlights of the Ocean Alexander 32E is certainly her giant beach club on the stern of the boat. Fold down bulwarks convert the aft deck into a seamless 30-foot flat surface, making a wide open beach club cabana complete with a hydraulic swim platform that lowers to below the water level. This makes accessing the water and launching and retrieving water toys an easy task, embodying the “go explore” philosophy of OA’s “Explorer” line. A crane on the aft deck can hoist tenders into place for storage on deck when the boat is underway.
Interior Design & Furniture

Throughout the interior, timelessly classic furniture from Poltrona Frau gives the yacht an Italian flair. The walls feature beveled tiles that elegantly obscure convenient storage closets and recessed lighting provides the perfect ambiance throughout. The open-plan living space is designed to prioritize natural light and provide a view of the surrounding seascape, which is achieved by utilizing glass extensively throughout the vessel. The main salon has 3 main entries, one on each side of the boat in addition to the main entrance through the aft sliding glass doors, providing alternate routes for crew and staff aboard during busy times.

Five cabins provide luxurious accommodations for up to 8 guests. The master suite, which spans the full beam of the boat, is located at the front of the main deck, with another VIP suite directly below on the lower deck. Two aft guest staterooms are situated on the lower deck, with a twin berth cabin midship.
Impressive Crew Quarters
Ocean Alexander didn’t forget about the crew with this yacht either. Down below her crew quarters are nothing to scoff at, with a dedicated cabin for the ship’s captain, two comfortable twin crew quarters and a secondary washer/dryer along with an additional full galley just for the crew.

The galley on the Ocean Alexander 32E features full size, high end appliances, marble countertops and a 5 burner stove top/oven along with a stainless steel sink and trash compactor. There is a pull out pantry and an extra freezer to provide plenty of storage for provisions on long cruising trips.

Ocean Alexander is known for their OA 100 Skylounge mode, and similarly the 32E incorporates an elegant, luxurious skylounge that makes for an entertaining spot where sunsets and sunrises can fill the huge windows and immerse you and your guests in the wonders of nature. A full bar set up and Paltrona Frau U-shape couch behind the main bridgedeck provide excellent lounging area with a fold down flatscreen TV ideal for movie nights with friends.
Convenient Day Heads
One major highlight of the OA 32E is the fact that both the main deck and upper deck have convenient day heads that are accessed from the common areas. These day heads eliminate the need for guests to go into staterooms or down below and make for greater privacy and comfort for everyone.
