When asked about the project, Marshall explained, “The design for the new Ocean Alexander 90R has provided my design office with one of our most exciting and rewarding challenges to date. It builds on our long-standing collaboration with one of our closest partners in which we have over the period of seven years comprehensively developed a new signature design styling for both the interior and exterior of the company’s product line, placing them at the forefront of the yachting industry.”

The perfect synergy between naval architect and designer, with excellent project management by Ocean Alexander are crucial to achieve a perfect yacht design. We had the opportunity to design the hull lines of the entire Ocean Alexander Revolution series where 90R is just the first one launched.”

“Our mission is to fulfil all targets Ocean Alexander asked of us, such as top hull lines performances that must match with Marshall’s extremely general layout. The hull needed to provide a very smooth performance with rough sea conditions and also optimum seakeeping properties at various speeds and sea conditions.” Arrabito concludes, “These are trademarks of the Ocean Alexander brand that had to be included in this new series. We utilized and fully studied these hull lines by means of complete CFD calculations to obtain the best result.”
