2001 Ocean Alexander Classico 6500 "BIG WOOF" is a rare opportunity. An Ocean Alexander Ed Monk Jr. best design effort.
Big Woof started life as Eagle Spirit,designed for the president of Amoco chemicals to cruise Alaska. No expense was spared in her equipment and systems. She spent life in the Pacific Northwest until 2014 when the current owners transported her by freighter to Fort Lauderdale. For the past eight years she has spent winters in the Bahamas and Southeastern US.
She is an all weather cruising vessel, designed for anchoring out and enjoying peace and quiet without the need to run the generator continuously thanks to an outstanding Inverter system as described in the listing full specs section.
The owners, experienced cruisers, considered 57 Nordhavns,58 Krogens,65 Outer Reefs and 59 Selenes and Chose BIG WOOF,the Ocean Alexander Classico Trawler.
The owners have been cruising for twenty five years and after eight wonderful years with Big Woof are only selling because of their advancing age.
Note the many equipment,system and design details in the listing "Full Specs" and photos section. The photos are recent and a true depiction.
Highlights include highly regarded Lugger marinized Komatsu engines.The owners typically cruise at 900 RPM, 8.5 knots,9 gallons per hour total for both engines.In addition to cruising at 900 rpm each day there were about 15 minutes of 1500 RPM periods to fully heat exhaust etc. She's capable of low mid teens.
An example of her efficiency - a run from Fort Myers Florida mile marker 135,through the Okeechobee waterway to Fort Pierce and up the Intracoastal to Lambs Yacht Center,Jacksonville Florida- a total of about 320 gallons fuel consumed.
Two Northern Lights Generators( low hours due to the Inverter System),bow and stern thrusters, stabilizers, Aqua Whisper 65 gallon per hour water maker,three inverter chargers and substantial Exide Absolyte battery bank.
The 55kg Rocna anchor with 500 feet of chain makes for relaxed anchoring and the 14 foot Rendova dinghy with brand new 50 hp Tohatsu makes trips to the beach,fishing and shopping a breeze.
Three staterooms, beautiful interior wood, superb galley, expansive layout and accommodations, a vessel easily handled by a couple.
Conscientious, attentive owners have cherished Big Woof, in seriously placing her for sale the owners have continued to look after her as always, note recent bottom paint,new washer, services.
"Big Woof" is berthed in Jacksonville Florida at Lambs Yacht Center, convenient to see, handy to the interstates and airports.
An ideal location for every element of a purchase transaction.
