Elements of Nautilus

Ocean Alexander has been building boats for more than 35 years, with over 2,000 yachts completed so far. This is a family-owned business with its own yards in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and Shanghai, China, and is one ofthe larger boatbuilders in the industry. The company was founded by Alex Chueh and is currently managed by his son, John Chueh. Since 1977 Ocean Alexanders have been designed exclusively by Ed Monk Jr.

Over the years, Ocean Alexander has built trawlers, pilotlhouse yachts, and motoryachts in various sizes and configurations, ranging from 38 feet to over 120 feet.

The 50 Classico is an ocean trawler that began life in 2000. Originally introduced as a 43, she was enlarged to a 46 in 2006. The current model is essentially the same as the 46, but the boat is now designated as a 50, measuring almost exactly 51' from her bow sprit to her swim platform.

This is hull 14 of the Classico 50, the last one built.  She is refined.  And will always be the newest OA 50 Classico to be found.  Nautilus is a stout and elegant yacht, designed for safe and comfortable passage making, and her pilothouse design makes her perfectly suited to cruising our BC waters.

Throughout Nautilus

Board Nautilus so easily, accessing the cockpit via opening doors at port, starboard or aft to the swim platform. This third door on port was a factory option and eliminates any potential anxiety or need to dock to the same side all the time.

Enter the salon through the wide 112cm (44") sliding door, to a space surrounded by large windows, filling the area with natural light and fresh air.

Traditional varnished teak and holly soles, custom carpet runners, teak panels and joinery with a satin finish throughout, soft cream headliners. Understated elegance, in natural tones, inviting your own sense of style.

Main Deck

The cockpit is 3.6m x 2m (12' x 6' 6") and is great for fishing, or for lounging and dining al fresco. It is protected from the sun and elements with the overhanging boat deck above, extended aft to the end of the cockpit. Because the boat deck above may interfere with fishing, fixed staples were added to the 96cm (38") swim platform, as a more suitable and safe place to fight and land your catch.

There is also a simple but ingenious stainless steel grab bar that swings out from the staple to assist getting in and out of your kayaks, making the task safer and more comfortable.

Electrical System

Owners and guests can rely on the AC and DC power systems, servicing the vessel through circuit breaker panels with appropriate voltage and ampere gauges. 110VAC is provided by 50 Amp shore connection (bow or stern), by the 12 kW Northern Lights generator, and, based on the available house bank battery power, through the inverters.

At sea, the batteries are charged by engine or generator driven alternators and while at a dock, by the inverters and chargers via shorepower.
