Superyacht of the Week: ISA Yacht’s sleek 66­­­­ metre OKTO

Rarely do we come across new yachts that push the limits in our industry; true game changers, pioneers, class leaders. This is exactly what ISA Yachts has achieved with their largest build to date, the stunningly sleek 66 metre superyacht Okto. Dressed in an ultra-cool black hull and deep silver superstructure, Okto has been roaming the seas as the epitome of style and luxury in her class since her delivery in July 2014.

For the Italian shipyard ISA Yachts, build quality has always been at the top of their priorities list. Their exclusive build schedule allowed for intensive man hours dedicated to finishing each yacht far above industry standards. The yard’s first 66 metre Granturismo project however has taken this philosophy a step further. Built for an experienced yachtsman and engineered by the skilled team at BMT Nigel Gee, once on board Okto, it becomes clear that this yacht is not only captivating to look at, but holds so much more than what meets the eye.

​​​​It is Andrea Vallicelli’s athletic and almost race car-like exterior that first grabs the attention. From the knife-blade bow running aft to the sleek sloping superstructure and down to the 6.5m x 4.7m pool on main deck aft, the French studio brilliantly realised the owner’s vision of a simple yet dynamic appearance. The use of curved shapes and slanted styling lines creates a sense of flow throughout the exterior guest areas and adds to the functional layout of the deck spaces that effortlessly flows into the lavish interior created by the late Alberto Pinto.

On bridge deck guests are offered a total of 80 square metres where options range from sunbathing, lazy lunches in the shade or, once the deck furniture has been rearranged, elegant evening entertaining with family and friends. This deck has been fitted with an advanced stereo system developed by Videoworks that creates the perfect environment for dancing the night away with a spectacular view in the background.

One deck above, a secluded sundeck area has been created without interrupting the sleek image of the yacht, and unless viewed from above, can easily be overlooked. Here one finds an intimate sunbathing area with a Jacuzzi – one of Okto’s two on board pool areas – and a private gym that is fitted with oversized windows and a skylight that creates a natural outdoor feeling allowing guests to continue their workout routines no matter the weather.
