It is said the two best days in boat ownership are the day you get it and the day you get rid of it. That sentiment could be no further from the truth in the case of 'Lollygagger'. Her owners, filled with sadness at the thought of going ashore, have decided to sell their well loved and expertly maintained Ocean Alexander Classicco 423, 'Lollygagger'. As I read through the log books and guest books I could not help but feel envious of the good times had by all aboard this most excellent vessel. She is a veteran of the great loop and to hear the owners recount salty sea stories puts you in the mood to take in all lines and venture out into uncharted life. Some boats come with a long list of features, some come with an adventurous, storied past. Lollygagger has both and she looks to and fro for her next family to carry out to sea. A balmy breeze, the world slowly going by, and all at once it hits you, "we did it, our dreams are reality, our adventure of a lifetime is happening now."
Lollygagger has had extensive upgrade, and rebuild work done to her including new electronics, new hoses and thru hulls, major bottom work, and both main engines were professionally rebuilt in 2014 and have 700 hours since completion. Over $120,000 has been wisely invested in Lollygagger.
If you wish you could find that special boat, you know the one that has those classic lines, and a great pedigree, then you need to buy Lollygagger. Don't risk your hard earned money on a "great deal, just needs a little work" kind of boat. Buy a boat that has been well taken care of, you will save yourself tremendous heartache and nothing will be in the way of one of life's greatest and most rewarding lifestyles.

Ocean Alexander Yachts was created in 1977 after a handshake between Naval Architect Ed Monk jr. and Alex Chueh, a successful entrepenurer in Tiapei. Alex acquired a boatyard in 1973 as payment on a debit and set out to manufacture the finest yachts available on the market. Upon meeting Monk, a 30 year relationship ensued where Monk designed, and Alex built. Their mutual agreement and commitment to producing some of the finest boats to sail the seas has resulted in a legacy and reputation of high quality workmanship, seaworthiness, and long life. Ocean Alexander still produces some of the best yachts floating today and under the command of son Johnny Chueh the company continues to evolve into advance building techniques. By using the latest in Finite Element Analysis, 3d software that allows a vessel to be completely built in virtual reality, and time tested materials, Ocean Alexander has managed to stay in the game as one of the best. You can be confident that the same excellence, quality, and genuine affection for a beautiful design went in to the Classicco line of Ocean Alexanders.
Manufacturer Provided Detail
Construction- This Ocean Alexander Yacht is a molded fiberglass semi-displacement hull yacht. It is molded in three major sections which are: the hull, superstructure and flybridge. Large flat areas in some sections are reinforced for rigidity by sandwiching a rigid core in between layers of fiberglass, thus obtaining the desired rigidity without materially adding to the weight. The basic fiberglass sections of the boat are both chemically and mechanically bonded together to make the boat an integral unit.
Hull- The hull section is of one piece molded fiberglass construction. There are four molded main fiberglass longitudinal stringers, fiberglass bonded to the hull. Primary transverse bulkheads of marine plywood are fiberglass bonded in place while the hull section is still in the mold.
Deck/Superstructure- The deck/superstructure is molded as one piece. It is fiberglass bonded and mechanically fastened to the hull section to make the two sections integral.
Flybridge- The flybridge is also molded as one piece, and is mechanically fastened to the superstructure.
Fittings- All underwater thru hull fittings are bronze and have seacocks inside the boat. All thru hull fittings are electrically bonded to each other and connected to the boats grounding system.
Fuel Tanks- There are three aluminum 5086-H32 fuel tanks. Two one hundred and fifty gallon tanks are located port and starboard midship. One three hundred gallon tank is located centerline aft for a total of six hundred gallons of diesel fuel.
Water Tank- Two eighty gallon water tanks located aft of the engine room port and starboard.
Holding Tank- Single fiberglass forty gallon tank located Forward
Main Engines- Lollygagger is powered by two naturally aspirated model 3208 Caterpillar engines, They are each conntected to a MG-502 twin disc transmission with a reduction ratio of 2.47 :1.
