The Ocean Alexander Tri-Cabin is probably the best layout of any trawler you will find.

She sports a huge Master Stateroom with an en-suite head complete with a small bathtub. With this vessel the wood work has been upgraded to a beautiful mixture of maple tongue and groove on the bulkheads and teak trim and accents. It brightens up the cabin and makes it feel larger. There is a center-line queen bed, a large hanging locker forward on the port side, and a full length mirror to starboard on the forward bulk head. There is ample storage in the bureau on either side of the cabin. Forward to starboard is the Master Cabin Head complete with a vanity, a Raritan Electric full sized toilet, a separate shower with a small bathtub, perfect for many uses. Forward of the salon you will find a bulkhead right down the center-line of the boat after you come down the 3 steps to the forward cabins. To the Starboard is an elevated double berth with plenty of drawers and storage below. On the Port Side is a carbon copy of the Starboard guest room, also a double berth with ample storage. Each cabin has a 6 drawer bureau and a pair of sliding louvered doors with shelves. All the way forward in the bow is a small head to be shared by occupants of the duel double state rooms. Guests and Grand kids will love this super comfortable space!!! The salon in the Ocean Alexander 43 is a "Europa" type lay out with the Galley in the Salon. The main salon is a very large open concept room. It has two entrances, port aft and star board next to the inside helm station. The large galley is up in this salon and has ample counter space, a 3 burner electric Princess Stove, a very large front loading refrigerator and a very large A/C separate freezer that will keep ice cream hard and your 1st mate happy! Across from the galley is a leather upholstered "L" shaped settee and movable table with fold down leaves. Windows are all around and the visibility is excellent. This results in the Salon feeling open and bright and the cook will love being able to see out and be part of the group instead of stuck down below in a "galley down" layout that is common with most trawlers.
