Excellent and Excellence

Two from Italy, two from Germany: traditionally elegant, sports-styled, contemporary and world-cruisers. Edmiston has put together four 60 metre yachts that cover just about every possibility. In their own individual ways – they each have excellent attributes.

Okto versus Excellence V is a fascinating comparison. Two yachts with an extraordinary list of features, that are the polar opposite in style. Both are outstanding and it is a matter of personal preference.


Okto is one of the most radically styled and dramatic yachts of the last decade. It is also one of the most accomplished. Outside space is gargantuan for a yacht of this size with spectacular terraces on both the main and upper deck levels.

Despite her striking streamlined styling, the advanced naval architecture of her hull shape allows for a range of almost 7,000 miles or a top speed approaching 20 knots.

Alberto Pinto’s dramatically decorative styling uses black lacquer, marble and leather all set against polished-steel detailing and huge floor-to-ceiling windows along the length of the salons and in the master suite.

Other ideas include a circular cinema skylounge and a glass-enclosed circular dining salon enabling the choice of a fresh or air-conditioned atmosphere.

Okto has been on the market for some time and has a price premium due to her high specification. Now more keenly for sale, offers are encouraged.

Excellence V was designed to provide the volume of a 75 metre yacht in a hull of 61 metres.

The Owner then threw in the additional challenge of being able to moor in Gustavia, St Barths – not the easiest of harbours for any large yacht.

Designers Reymond Langton and shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen created a spectacular solution with 1,630 gross tonnes of internal space in a yacht packed with features and intelligent thinking.

A yacht with so much volume enables the total separation of guest lifestyle and crew activity. For example, on most yachts the garage and beach club are next to each other, which can prove to be noisy and disruptive. On Excellence V the beach club is amidships and has the additional benefit of a waterside balcony and no crew activity other than
serving drinks and snacks if required.

Another benefit of so much space is enjoying so much choice – where to dine, to relax, to entertain, to sunbathe and even to sleep. With seven cabins including two bedrooms set on the Owner’s deck, every possible guest combination can be accommodated.

Launched in 2012 and recently repainted, Edmiston brokers recently inspected the yacht. With new generators and fully serviced engines, there is not a scratch on the stainless steel or a mark on the mirror-perfect black lacquer. They say ‘you get what you pay for’. Excellence V proves the point.

Triple Seven was built at Nobiskrug in Germany and has been maintained in excellent condition since her launch in 2006. Her substantial volume of almost 1400GT includes five very spacious guest suites and lifestyle spaces that are particularly impressive.

Outside space is equally substantial with a 20 metre sun deck and expansive open and shaded options on the upper and main decks. With a gym and sauna, the beach club spa leads out to a double-depth swimming platform. Interiors are extremely bright thanks to full-height windows, high ceilings and off-white furniture.

With a strict maintenance schedule, all of the yacht’s certificates are up-to-date and she is commercially compliant. Her price per ton shows significant value.

Triple Seven has cruised extensively throughout the world and been used as a floating resort taking advantage of her huge inventory of sports equipment. She has the power and resources to excel as a solid, silent long-range independent cruising yacht.

Built at Codecasa in 1990, Sokar was acknowledged as one the finest Italian yachts of her era. Refitted and considerably lengthened in 1999 at Abeking & Rasmussen, she was upgraded again and repainted in 2015.

Sokar’s appeal is very straightforward. She has the advantage of walk-around decks at every level for easy access to her 64 metres but still manages to have just under 1,000GT of internal space.

This includes nine double cabins and a very large saloon. The interior features classic cherry panelling, marble bathrooms with an overall atmosphere of traditional elegance. Her performance is good too with a top speed in excess of 20 knots and a range of 6,900 miles.
