Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge:
Skylounge & Precise Handling

Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge
Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge

The Ocean Alexander 100 has an enclosed skylounge on the upper deck, which means the helm can move up there too. This frees up a lot of deck space for a country kitchen-style galley, or even a main-deck master. But does she really turn like an express cruiser? Read about our test here.

Southport 33:
Ray Hunt & Assoc., Deep-V Design

Southport 33
Southport 33

The Southport 33 is not only well built, she also has striking lines for a center console, with the combination of the reverse sheer at the transom, gentle tumblehome at the stern quarters, and a bit of flare with a touch of a concave thrown in forward that make her a real head-turner.
