SuperYachtsMonaco Talks All Things 71.7m KOGO
Delivered by French shipyard, Alstom, in 2006, 71.7m KOGO is an impressive addition to the brokerage market. Currently listed for sale with SuperYachtsMonaco, the luxury grey vessel boasts incredible features and a breathtaking array of onboard amenities, within a luxurious and welcoming interior. We speak to SuperYachtMonaco’s Director, and KOGO’s broker, Alex Banning, to gain an insight into this outstanding motor yacht.
Featuring a timeless exterior design by award-winning British designer, Tim Heywood, 71.7m KOGO presents everything an owner could ever need, both inside and out. Having only two owners from new, she is in impeccable condition, and ready to travel the world.
What makes KOGO a truly stand-out vessel?
AB: The list is vast. There are so many unique, and very cool, reasons why she won three Superyacht Awards in 2007. I think she was the first go-anywhere superyacht with the modern amenities that every modern yacht owner requires today.
Onboard KOGO, you’ll find an area dedicated to relaxation, with a spa, sauna and massage room, alongside a state-of-the-art gym. Across her seven spacious decks lie a large pool, bathing platform and beach club, comprising more perfect amenities to unwind at sea. According to Alex, ‘It isn’t just her amenities though, the feel on board is immediately relaxing.’
If you’re one for entertaining instead, KOGO offers multiple outdoor dining and lounging areas, as well as an open-air cinema with surround sound and HD screens, when a busy holiday calls for a movie night onboard. She also features a dedicated helideck and multiple tenders, jet skis and water toys: offering the ultimate experience at sea.
KOGO’s hull allows her to traverse the globe. What destination would you recommend her new owner visit and why?
AB: Only one destination? I’m afraid I can't. I recommend KOGO. Take her places, experience the globe, explore a new place or go back to your favourite spots: go off the beaten path. KOGO is your moveable home and there aren’t too many limitations to hold her next owner back.
Built by Alstom as an explorer yacht, with proven naval architecture by BCTQ, KOGO’s unique ice-class hull presents her owner with a remarkable opportunity to visit any location. She has been meticulously built, complying to Lloyds class standards and MCA certification.
Can you tell us more about the qualities of her interior design?
AB: Terence Disdale. His name rather sums her interiors up. The definitive market-leader in textures, materials, finishes and of course she looks amazing today as she did when she was delivered. My personal perspective is that Terence Disdale has designed a super-relaxed, informal and comfortable feel on board. A beach house blend of Asia and Indonesia. But, that’s through my eyes!
KOGO offers the ultimate air of sophistication throughout her interior. Her contemporary yet comfortable onboard design by Terence Disdale, presents spacious open-plan living, finished with complimentary rich woods and neutral toned soft furnishings. This level of luxuriously high standards is displayed throughout her grand owner's suite and six guest cabins, where she can accommodate 14 with ease.
Why is KOGO such a significant addition to SuperYachtMonaco’s brokerage portfolio?
AB: She is an icon. Her owners were/are prolific superyacht owners and experts. Offering her for sale is both a rare occasion and a rare opportunity.
KOGO is powered by diesel electric propulsion with azipods for low noise and vibration levels during cruising. She also features Dynamic Positioning (DP) to further enhance her owner's enjoyable sailing experience. Her underway stabilisers provide for exceptional comfort when at-anchor. With a 14m beam and 1,892 gross tonnage, she has a cruising speed of 15kn, and maximum speed of 17kn.
Finally, why is KOGO one of the best superyachts on the market and why?
AB: She offers so much and is ready to cruise right now. Her next owner will be one very happy individual indeed.
Currently berthed and welcoming inspections in Palm Beach, Florida, KOGO is raring and ready to go for her next owner. Get in touch with Alex and the rest of the SuperYachtsMonaco team to find out more about this impressive listing. We can’t wait to see her cruising around the world very soon.
