“LAZY SUZAN” IS HEADED BACK TO INSIDE SUMMER STORAGE IN A HURRICANE PROOF, CLIMATE CONTROLLED BUILDING. SHE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SHOWINGS BY APPOINTMENT WITH 48 HOUR NOTICE.
LAZY SUZAN is a 2006 Ocean Alexander 48 Classico Sedan with T/440 Yanmar Diesels and all the options plus many custom features and recent upgrades. The engines had their 1000-hour services at just under 900 hours and have been cared for professionally since the current (2nd) owner purchased her in 2012. She currently has 1200 hours on her main engines and only 700 hours on the ONAN 13.5KW Gen-Set. The seller bought her from the original owner and has put 90% of the hours on LAZY SUZAN doing the Great Loop and exploring the Bahamas. Having just moved from her annual inside, climate-controlled summer storage at River Forest’s LaBelle storage facility to her slip in Ft. Myers, she is once again easy to board and ready for your inspection.
LAZY SUZAN is very well equipped including Raymarine's latest Axiom Hybrid multi-function GPS/Plotter/Radar/Sonar. There is 1 display at the lower helm and 2 displays at the FB helm.
Her 2 heads with roomy common stall shower between give owners their own private ensuite head and the guest head doubles as a day head. The guest SR is very user friendly with low over under berths making access to the upper berth easy for adults of all ages unlike her sister predecessors the 426 and 450 Classicco Sedans. She is also faster than those models with her larger power and increased length on the same beam giving her a longer waterline for greater efficiency at trawler speeds plus an increased planning surface for high cruise speeds of 17-18 knots on her semi displacement hull. This increased planning surface also makes her more efficient at high cruise speeds as well for those days when getting there is the goal. Her tried and proven hull form does it with a soft, dry ride that will please even the most discerning yachtsman or woman. Arguably it’s the best riding hull in her size and class.
Of special note is her exterior condition. OA is known for gelcoat fading and deterioration over time but LAZY SUZAN exhibits none of that. Her exterior is in fact one of her strong points along with her recent battery upgrade (to all AGM batteries), the latest in electronics, upgraded ground tackle, dual heads and the easy access to the Flybridge and boat deck via the gently ascending stairs from the larger cockpit.
Another important feature is the large full-length Diamond Sea-Glaze sliding door from the cockpit to the salon. It is framed in stainless steel and slides on/in stainless tracks, a huge improvement over the wood framed sliding doors or smaller hinged doors on older models.
The windows are all framed in Stainless as well, another major improvement over the traditional aluminum framed windows with rubber inserts that deteriorate and require more maintenance.
Her Brower hydraulic dinghy crane makes launch and retrieval of the tender from the boat deck an easy one-person operation. The FB factory hardtop is another terrific option sheltering the person at the helm and all the guests from the sun or any inclement weather with the 2016 polycarbonate FB enclosure lowered and in place.
LAZY SUZAN’s engine room is easily accessible from 3 locations, through the lazarette, down a hatch in the galley with angled SS ladder, or by lifting the forward companionway stairs from the main deck to the stateroom deck. Once there the engine room has easy access to all the machinery and equipment with clean white surfaces which reflect the recently added bright LED 110V lighting in addition to the 12V lighting.
Everywhere you look this fine example of one of Taiwan’s premier yacht manufacturers reflects the years of experience and development Ocean Alexander builds into every boat they construct. LAZY SUZAN is standing tall ready to explore new harbors and discover remote cruising grounds with her new owners or possibly to retrace some of the waters she has already navigated while completing the Great Loop with you at the helm.
The Northwest-inspired lines of the Ocean Alexander 48 Classicco Sedan suggest her fitness for cruising. A closer inspection of the craftsmanship, the details of construction and the interior layout confirms that this indeed is a yacht born to cruise. Attention to detail is the watchword at Ocean Alexander. It begins with the design by naval architect Ed Monk Jr. and continues through the entire construction process. Hand-laid multidirectional fiberglass results in a sea friendly hull designed for efficient, long-range cruising. The 48 has extraordinary interior joiner work and an exceptional list of standard equipment, including a generator, a windlass, and two control stations.
The 48 Classicco lives up to its cruising heritage the minute passengers step aboard. The large cockpit invites lounging, entertaining, even fishing. Up top the expansive bridge provides plenty of seating plus room for a dinghy. Inside, there is a spacious salon, galley, and lower station arrangement. The master stateroom comes complete with a vanity, a cedar-lined hanging locker and private access to the master head and common shower. The comfortable guest stateroom has twin upper and lower berths and a large head opposite with access to the common stall shower.
This is a classic cruising sedan appointed with two staterooms and two heads with a space saving adjoining shower. Full galley. The salon, galley, lower helm and cockpit are all on the same level providing easy egress while underway, while three steps down from the galley are the staterooms, master w/centerline queen berth forward and guest stateroom with lowered over/under berths on port. The entire boat has rich satin finished teak cabinetry and paneling throughout the vessel.
