Since its launch at the Miami International Boat Show in February 2019, the Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence has certainly attracted a lot of attention. In fact, according to respected boat media and industry pundits, the 45 Divergence has turned the entire centre console market on its head!

Alexander Marine Australia will host the much-anticipated Australian launch of this category-busting outboard-powered vessel at the 2019 Sydney International Boat Show, 1 to 5 August. Loaded with cruising gadgets, this exciting new model is the ultimate platform for memorable days out on the water with family and friends.

According to its designers, the Divergence 45 is an ideal stand-alone sport boat or second vessel for large yacht owners who are seeking a dynamic, sport boat they can jump onboard and go, whether that's for a day on the Harbour or a fast transfer vessel to your favourite restaurant.

At an overall length of 14.5m (47ft) with a 4.19m (13'9") beam, the Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence features unprecedented levels of luxury for a boat its size - that's even before the bulwarks are lowered to further maximise your entertaining space. Make no mistake, the 45 Divergence is jam-packed with exciting features!

Drawing on the design hallmarks and pedigree of Ocean Alexander's superyachts, the 45 Divergence places equal focus on comfort as much as horsepower. Quad 350hp Mercury Verado outboard power was selected and she sprints to the desired destination very quickly indeed!

The foredeck features twin sunbeds, plus bow seating and a high-low table that when lowered, offers yet more space to take in some rays. Aft in the cockpit, there is comfortable dual lounge seating and a dining table which conveniently lowers into the floor when it's not required - how cool is that! To further boost the entertaining credentials, the cockpit boasts a barbeque, sink fridge and icemaker combination. A retractable SureShade provides the necessary sun protection over this space when required, while at the helm, there are three helm seats overlooking an ergonomic glass bridge-inspired helm station with weather protection assured by way of a substantial hardtop.

The real magic lies in the patented fold-out bulwarks which expand the usable recreation space to an epic 5.82m (19'1") beam to enhance the alfresco dining experience - all so close to the water. Hidden swim ladders also make the 45 Divergence the ideal day boat for all water sports.

Belowdecks, the quality of finishes are intentionally superyacht standard. The cabin comprises a dining table with banquette seating that converts to a double berth. The toilet and separate showerstall feature windows and overhead skylights maximum natural light and a feeling of spaciousness.

"We are excited to debut the the all-new Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence at the Sydney International Boat Show," said Dealer Principal and Director of Alexander Marine Australia, Todd Holzapfel.

"There's a real appetite in Australia and New Zealand for a powerful, versatile outboard-powered boat that does double duty as an adventure vessel and luxury day boat combining performance and style.

"As one of the only superyacht builders in this market segment, Ocean Alexander has created a unique vessel that we expect buyers will find very appealing - from the adventurous family who love entertaining afloat, to large yacht owners who want a versatile, spontaneous boat they can use whenever precious time permits."

According to Johnny Chueh, Ocean Alexander President "The 45 Divergence is a very drastic change in our product offering which took our competitors and the market by surprise".

"We took a careful look at this segment and realised that we were in the perfect position to design a boat in this range. Instead of coming at it from a perspective of a centre-console builder who's expanding their line, however, we looked at this with the fresh eyes of a luxury yacht manufacturer designing for a more compact space."

And the reviews have been unanimously positive, including major praise from Media gathered at its Miami launch.

"It's gorgeous, can be configured in several different ways, and has tonnes of space for whatever you want to do onboard," said the team from Centre Consoles Only, adding that what separates the Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence from the field is "the high-end yacht finishes and amenities - they've thought of everything!"

Also on display at the Alexander Marine Australia stand at Sydney International Boat Show will be the Ocean Alexander 88 Sky and 70e, along with the Galeon 460 Fly and 510 Skydeck Motoryachts.
