In the late 1970s, the Ocean Alexander 50 Pilothouse MK I was the first Ocean Alexander model brought to the US. It was very well received, and just under 100 were produced.
It was replaced in1985 with the MkII. This updated model has a more modern appearance, with more contemporary lines and a sleeker profile. With Improved fiberglass laminate technology and ability, the updated MkII is about 10% lighter than her predecessor, and certainly no less robust, and capable.
There are a few important features that make this particular OA 50 MkII stand out:
This is an opportunity to own a quality yacht. It is a timeless classic yacht, highly admired amongst knowledgable cruisers. Argo is in above average condition with handsome lines, outstanding teak joinery, and reliable Cat power.
It is an easy step from the dock or a tender to the broad swim platform, then to the boat’s cockpit through the transom gate.
The cockpit is just large enough for al fresco coffee or dining. It is teak clad, and there are steps up port and starboard to the side decks, pilothouse doors, and the foredeck.
Enter the salon from the cockpit through sliding double doors of solid teak and glass. The salon and galley are adjacent, with the galley forward to port, and the well laid out wet bar to starboard.
Then steps up to the pilothouse with teak steering on the centreline, upholstered settee with table, port and starboard wing doors, and on starboard, stairs up to the flybridge and upper helm.
To port in the pilothouse, is a curved teak staircase to the accommodations with the master cabin with ensuite head and shower forward, a huge locker and guest head in the foyer, and the commodious guest cabin aft (midships).
Up from the pilothouse is the flybridge and upper helm with helm chair, and built-in settees port and starboard. The boat deck is aft with room for a good sized tender, BBQ, more lounging area, and all manner of cruising needs.
Argo has a two cabin / two head configuration with the owner’s cabin forward, and the guest cabin midships. The companionway to the accommodations area leads down from the port side of the pilothouse to a foyer.
As in the rest of the yacht, the accommodations are finished in the finest teak joinery, some with raised teak panels. Each cabin has LED lighting, heat controls, generous berths, and excellent storage.
The Owner’s Cabin is also richly finished in teak, and features a centreline queen berth, numerous lockers and drawers, and natural light and ventilation.
The Owner’s Head is accessed directly from the cabin for privacy.
The Guest Cabin is aft of the foyer with two sets of upper and lower bunks port and starboard, that will accommodate four guests.
The Guest / Day Head is to port off the foyer.
Great for entertaining or lounging, the spacious salon has seating for a small crowd in a large L-shaped settee to port, around a hi-low cocktail / dining table, and two rattan chairs to starboard.
Forward to the starboard side in the salon is the dedicated wet bar with basin, working surface, ice maker, and storage.
The galley is forward of the salon, to port, and on the same level. It is behind a raised bar finished in teak. The galley is U-shaped, with a household-sized double door fridge and freezer. The work area is efficient, at the same level as the salon, with exceptional storage, light and ventilation. Note also:
The pilothouse is up a few steps from the salon and galley areas with outstanding visibility all around. It is a superbly designed space from which to command the ship, entertain underway, enjoy breakfast at table in an anchorage, and to plan the next days adventure.
The pilothouse has an upholstered settee with a teak drop-leaf table. At the helm, all controls and instruments are comfortably at hand.
There are port and starboard doors to the side decks, and foredeck. And from inside, stairs up from the pilothouse to the flybridge and boat deck.
The cockpit, clad in teak, is accessed by the wide teak swim-grid, through the transom gate. It is spacious enough, and intimate to the ocean around, and, with high bulwarks, is safe and secure. The teak caprail is extends to the caprails and railings leading forward.
Doors from the cockpit to the salon are of solid teak. They are sliding, rather than hinged, and in fair weather, the salon and cockpit almost become one.
Full beam cockpit lazarette for access to systems, as well as plenty of room for storage. This locker also gives access to the machinery space, meaning a tech does not need to enter the yacht to service the engines.
The roomy flybridge has excellent running visibility from the helm seat, with controls and instruments close at hand. There is ample guest seating with the built-in settees.
The flybridge is covered by a bimini, just ahead of the fibreglass arch.
The boat deck, aft off the flybridge sitting area, has ample room for a sizeable tender, folding teak table and chairs for additional lounging, and all manner of cruising needs and toys. There is ladder access to the cockpit.
Motive power is by two Caterpillar 3208 TA diesel engines, rated at 375 hp each, approximately 3,027 hours. 1,500 RPM can give 9+ knots, and 1,750 RPM gives up to 12 knots, depending on conditions.
The electrical system is designed and set up to provide reliable power to all systems on board with minimal need for charging with the genset.
DC power is from a large bank of AGM batteries totalling 1,600 Amp/hours.
AC power is from 30 Amp or 50 amp shore power, from the genset, or via the batteries through the inverter.
