The 66.40 metre Okto was the last yacht to be delivered by ISA Yachts in 2015. Okto, which is designed by Andrea Vallicelli, features interior design by the late Alberto Pinto. She can accommodate 12 guests in total and 17 crew. Here she is seen arriving at the Isle de Sol marina over the weekend.
Shortly after the delivery of Okto, ISA Yachts filed for 'concordato preventivo', a procedure that is somewhat similar to Chapter 11 in the US. There may be light on the horizon for the 104 remaining ISA employees, however, and according to reports from a regional Italian publication, Frittelli Maritime Group has shown an interest in the acquisition of the ISA shipyard. The Group’s owner Alberto Rossi is currently carrying out a thorough due diligence process.
