With many owners looking to build bigger and bigger yachts, we take a look at some of the yachts that are bucking the trend and proving that bigger is not always better.
Cost is often the deciding factor when choosing a superyacht. But marina access, draught and intimacy are just some of the other reasons why a superyacht owner may choose to build or buy smaller.
When the owner’s rep George Mourkakos spoke to Boat International he explained why: “The owner said to me, ‘George, every time I come on board (Alfa Nero), I see new people, new crew.’ So he wanted the same luxury and quality but in a smaller package.”
He got what he wanted — Okto has 17 crew to Alfa Nero’s 28. Okto is also one of the world’s quietest yachts.
