Designed by Ed Monk, the Ocean Alexander 456 Classicco features a double chine for a stable and dry ride, a cutaway keel for propeller protection and nimble maneuverability, and a wide beam for extra living space. In addition, a full length concave lifting area on each side of the hull contributes greatly to the exceptional performance characteristics regardless of engine option. The 456 Classicco is a performance trawler with eurostyle design; it combines great seaworthiness and a comfortable dry ride with an interior that will satisfy the most discerning yachtsmen. Twin 210 hp freshwater-cooled diesel engines deliver a 12-knot cruise speed and a 15-knot top speed, although engine options are available with larger or smaller horsepower ratings. Traditional double cabin design features a galley - salon combination that lets the cook be part of the action while keeping the dirty dishes hidden. "Workable" best describes the U-shaped galley with large countertop areas covered in off-white Formica, a stainless steel double sink, teak cabinetry, an electric stove (propane optional), and 110 - 220 dual voltage refrigerator - freezer. The spacious main salon not only displays Ocean Alexander's famous artistry in handcrafted woodwork, but also provides a multifunction area which contains an L-shaped settee (which can be converted into a berth) with a glass top Hi-Lo table, an entertainment center, and sufficient storage on portside. Teak cabinetry, teak parquet flooring, brass hardware, and hand-rubbed satin varnish provide soft, warm styling to the interior. The master stateroom features a queen walk around berth (2 location options), night stands, reading lamps, a cedar-lined hanging locker, opening windows with screens, ample drawer space, a private head with stall shower, mirrors, and lights. The guest stateroom forward, with vee-berths and filler section, make a comfortable compartment adaptable for a variety of guests; it features a large hanging locker, drawers and storage under the berths, a private head with stall shower lighting, and a GFI outlet to prevent shocks.
