Ocean Alexander History
Ocean Alexander was began 30 years ago by Alex Chueh, who set out to build the world’s finest motor yachts. With a workforce instilled with deep disciplines, he set out to create a new level of artistry. In 1978, Chueh met with famed naval architect Ed Monk Jr., and a long partnership followed, resulting in the yachts that Ocean Alexander builds today.
Today, Alex’s son John Chueh continues the company’s long partnership with Ed Monk. Ocean Alexander produces a range of yachts from 51’ to 98’ feet, including open flybridge and enclosed flybridge versions. The a new models are built using a proven Ocean Alexander hull from Ed Monk Jr. and his design team of Ed Hagemann (hydrodynamics) and Tim Nolan (structural design).
Ocean Alexander utilizes hand-laid fiberglass hulls, select AL600 balsa-cored sides with solid fiberglass bottoms and prop tunnel design for optimum performance. Aluminum structural beams with carbon fiber reinforcements are integrated for rigidity and strength. Ocean Alexander 680 specializes in long range coastal cruisers, capable of serious passage making while still offering all the amenities of an elegant motoryacht.
