The new 45 Divergence is a 14.5-meter yacht that transcends boundaries by flawlessly merging the comforts of a yacht with the size, swiftness and accessibility of a sport boat. It is available in three different configurations: Fishing, Diving or Coupe.
“We’ve brought elegance, style and sport performance together in perfect harmony, that’s an amazing all-around day boat”, said Giampaolo Murzi of Ocean Alexander Europe, official distributor for Europe, Turkey and Russia. “Prepare to amaze everyone onboard with its bold design, impressive customization and unprecedented level of comfort for a boat of its size. We assume that many superyacht owners would like to have such a wonderful yacht as a superb tender but she’s great as a day boat that is built to the superyacht quality.”
Evan K. Marshall, a well-known designer of megayachts, penciled this new model. She is being built on Merritt Island, Florida, in Ocean Alexander’s new modern facility that opened three years to build the brand’s 70e yacht.
The 45 Divergence is a center-console design powered by four Mercury Verado 350 engines. The yacht offers innovative convertibility, excellent engineering, luxurious finishing touches. This new model also includes a unique, patented feature of a door-within-a-door fold-out bulwark. This is the first US patent secured by Alexander Marine.
“During the design process, we realized how innovative and unique this concept was and acted to protect this creativity. The boat has a standard beam of 4.19m and when both bulwarks are extended, the beam becomes 5.82m, giving immense space in the cockpit area. When the bulwarks are up, the door-within-a-door act as boarding entries from either side of the boat. When the bulwark is extended, you can also open the door and it becomes an easy access point,” adds inventor Richard Allender.
Another comfortable seating area is situated in the bow around a table that can be made of either fiberglass, natural wood or carbon and folds out into a huge sunpad.
The 45 Divergence allows to scuba dive with friends and family, using the fold-down side bulwarks with carbon-fiber poles and hidden swimming ladders. On board this yacht feels much more than a 45-footer.
Then, there is a large galley for a cookout on the water. It is equipped with a grill and a coffee table that converts into a comfortable dining table for six with the touch of a button.
The boat also has an inside space with comfortable couches that convert in a double bed and a large pop-up 49” TV. Finally, there is a generous shade on deck to relax after water activities and a lot of space to carry fishing gear. In a Coupe version the main saloon can be completely covered with glass to ensure the area is protected from winds and bad weather, which works well for colder climates.
More than 400 variations of the cosmetic appearance of this boat mean there is the opportunity to transform the 45 Divergence to owner’s personal desires. A wide array of optional amenities is available like a live-bait well, rod holders or storage for diving accessories. Divergence is truly in a class of its own.
Ocean Alexander offers many options for the new boat, from several hull paint colors to gyrostabilizers and from night vision to more storage, tanks and equipment for nice fishing.
The new Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence will make its official European debut at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival (September 10-15).
