2014 Ocean Alexander 78 Motoryacht

As the fourth largest yacht production facility in the World (2021), Ocean Alexander has stepped into its own. Their commitment to technology, design and safety in construction has no rival in the mid-category yacht production industry today. You will see frequent references to the aerospace industry. That is because their computer aided design technology is down to the millimeter in precision.

RHYTHM ‘N BLUES has had only one owner, who built her with many upgrade options. The most notable are the MTU engines, integrated touchscreen Hatteland navigation module (with Skyhook) and beautifully appointed helm station extension, complete with robust A/C, full dining table and bar. RHYTHM ‘N BLUES has always been professionally maintained by a crew of two. She shows like new, despite her
3,300 hours of usage. Everything is overbuilt, and she boasts redundant systems, for headache free long range cruising.
