In 2004, Abely Wheeler—later known as Lepante, and eventually Alexandria—was the first of three Commuter 108s launched by OCEA Yachts. Its owner was looking for a ship to sail the world with family—this is why Abely Wheeler was designed to address those requirements from the outset, specifically in terms of reliability, range (4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots), seaworthiness and ease of use. The interior layout includes four cabins that can accommodate ten guests.
The ship has made a number of circumnavigations and exceptional stops since its launch, including Cape Verde, Cuba, the Galapagos, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Bali, and Phuket.
