A popular model, the Ocean Alexander 40 Double Cabin was introduced in 1980 when fuel-efficient trawlers were extremely popular in the U.S. market. One of the better-quality imports of her era, she rides on a solid fiberglass, semi-displacement hull with hard chines, moderate beam, and a long keel for improved directional stability. The standard two-stateroom floorplan of the Ocean 40 is arranged with the galley to starboard in the salon and a walkaround queen bed in the aft cabin. A lower helm was standard, and port and starboard doors in the salon provide convenient deck access. (Note that an alternate layout has the mid-level galley forward of the salon.) Either way, this is a full teak interior including a teak parquet cabin sole and teak doors. The Ocean 40 has an abundance of exterior teak as well—decks, window frames, and rails—so this isn’t exactly a low-maintenance boat. Note that the engine room is very spacious with good all-around access. A well-built boat with good resale values, twin 120hp Lehman diesels cruise the Ocean Alexander 40 DC at 7–8 knots with a cruising range of about 500 miles.


Classy double-cabin trawler with full teak interior gets high marks for quality construction, roomy accommodations.


Highlights include port and starboard deck doors in salon, lower helm station, parquet floors, generous storage. Cockpit access door in aft stateroom is a big plus. Large engineroom, roomy bridge with teak decking.


Better gelcoat finish than most Asian imports of her era.


Twin 120hp Lehman diesels will cruise efficiently at 7-8 knots.
