A WORD WITH YACHT DESIGNER EVAN K. MARSHALL
Marshall is an American designer living in London who keeps a stack of Yachting magazines from his childhood. They inspired him to become a yacht designer. yachting: What was your goal for the OA 100 Skylounge? ekm: Being able to offer a true trideck layout. What we have done is offer a private house as well as a public house, and a sky lounge normally associated with much larger yachts. yachting: Do you have a favorite feature? ekm: I very much like the on-deck master stateroom with both a large bathroom and walk-in wardrobes, along with a night bathroom on the same level as the stateroom. These are features we introduced to the OA 112, and I’m pleased we could incorporate them into the OA 100. yachting: Did you have a particular buyer in mind? ekm: Like all Ocean Alexanders, this design caters to buyers who love extended, comfortable cruising in a capable offshore yacht.
