Built by the prestigious Italian shipyard ISA, the Okto superyacht is a superb 217-foot (66m) long vessel that combines the latest advances in naval engineering technology with the best interior design, created with the mastery and finesse that only the work of designer Alberto Pinto could deliver.
The shipyard’s group of engineers designed the aluminum super-structure and its steel hull, while the craft’s exterior aesthetic was under the direction of the renowned yacht architect Andrea Vallicelli. For this very special vessel, Vallicelli proposed a prow line double the usual height that wraps around the front of the vessel, with a narrow-angle of approach that gives it a streamlined, elegant, and polished look. The hull, painted in black, is interrupted only by the silver-toned fittings and the reflections of its large windows. Striking grey and matte textured wood complete its sober, elegant, imposing image, a real head turner at any harbor or marina where she docks.
- 217-foot long.
- Capacity for11 passengers and 17 crew members.
- Cruising speed of 16 knots and 6,800-nautical mile range.
The decks are made of eco-friendly materials that replace the classic teakwood, and in the main level toward the stern, there is a large pool equipped with ambient lighting that can be set by the user. At bridge-level, an enormous al fresco dining room completes the stern, while the heliport at the prow can be used as a dance floor since it has a cutting-edge sound system.
Alberto Pinto proposed a classic luxury style for Okto’s decor. The overall environment is very reminiscent of the Art Deco style predominant at the beginning of the 20th century. The voluminous furnishings, in shades of white, black or natural tones, come with finishes of polished wood, marble, huge windows and an abundance of luxurious decorative objects.
With capacity for 11 passengers and 17 crew members, its most notable areas are the main room, with an impressive round table and an elegant living room in the classic style. The owner’s suite, which is on the same level but toward the stern, takes up the vessel’s entire beam, and it has a desk, on-suite bath, a dressing room, and a private retractable balcony that opens out to the starboard side. Besides this cabin, the Okto features four guest rooms, each decorated in a different theme and color scheme.
The Okto by ISA Yachts is a true marvel of naval engineering –with the style and elegance that only Italian designers can achieve.
At the bridge level, we find the movie theater, which has a circular layout; a gym with the latest exercise equipment; and, a few steps above, a tempting outdoor Jacuzzi with spectacular panoramic views.
Powered by two potent, 1,300 horsepower Caterpillar motors, this enormous vessel can sail at a cruising speed of 16 knots, with a top speed of 18 knots and a 6,800-nautical mile range. In order to ensure maximum comfort, an excellent job of noise reduction in indoor spaces has been done, and multiple stabilization systems have been integrated.
