As cruisers, we learn to predict the weather in our home waters with relative ease: it becomes instinctive. In the summer cruising grounds your radius from home port is likely to be only 100 miles. You will probably stay within your local seasonal weather pattern. Cruising the ICW is quite different. If you watch the local TV weather forecast in the morning, its afternoon predictions will be practically worthless as by afternoon you will be 50-60 miles away. This morning’s weather center forecast for tomorrow morning will be different from the forecast at tonight’s anchorage. In short, you will get little help from watching TV weather stations. You must become proficient at using a variety of sources to make your own predictions. Today’s forecast for tomorrow must consider that tomorrow you will be starting out 50 miles from here and end the day 100 miles from here. As you head along the coast you must be looking at the weather here today and 50 miles ahead tomorrow and 100 miles ahead the day after. You learn to be looking several days ahead and along a continually moving track.
Monaco-based brokerage house Imperial has proudly announced its appointment as the central agent for the sale of 41m OKKO built by Mondomarine, with the price upon application.
OKKO is a slick, all-aluminium, semi-displacement superyacht with three impressive decks and a powerful bulbous bow. Her twin MTU M91 engines deliver more than 1,750kW each, and the combination of her engine power with the hull and bow shape ensure smooth sailing and low fuel consumption. With a cruising speed of 14.5 knots, OKKO glides through the water seamlessly and quieter than most thanks to specific vibro-acoustic work that ensure greater acoustic insulation and decreased vibration issues.
Designer Giorgio Vafiadis has created a detailed exterior with several large outdoor relaxation spaces and a spacious sundeck space built to specification. This area has been created to hold a maximum of 12 guests comfortably whilst offering scenic views and is perfect for relaxing with the addition of a bar, BBQ, Jacuzzi, seating and sunbeds.
Vafiadis has tried to blend contemporary styling with comfort, using Glyn Peter Machine furniture, Tai Ping carpentry, along with Fendi and Cavalli extras throughout to create a stylish and relaxed interior. The use of mixed African Frake wood helps to create a serene environment that is pleasing to the eye and is also durable.
Five generous ensuite cabins provide accommodation for 10 guests. The owner’s suite occupies a generous space forward on the main deck with the ensuite finished in marble and back-lit onyx. The remaining four guest cabins are situated on the lower deck, comprising two doubles and two twin cabins with Pullman berths. Each cabin has its own Kaleidoscope system offering a wide selection of world cinema from your iPad, and a large selection of A/V amenities.
Built with care and attention to detail, OKKO is a contemporary and stable vessel designed purely for the comfort of guests and her owners.

Anchors– Anchor designs have evolved greatly over the centuries. The Danforth anchor was a breakthrough design in the early years of world war II: a lightweight anchor with superb holding capabilities. After the war, it became the standard anchor for small craft. Its one weakness is that the flukes may get jammed with a stone, stick, or quahog and it will not reset if a wind or current reversal pops the anchor out. The various plow and claw style anchors were developed to address that possible weakness. However, their ultimate holding power did not measure up to the light weight fluke style on a weight for weight basis. The spade type anchor. Rocna, Manson, Mantus, Ultra etc. appear to be the best of both worlds. Although diehard Danforth owners and their Fortress family are very happy with the performance of the fluke style anchor, the spade style anchors have a terrific reputation for coastal cruisers and are now the most frequently used on the ICW.
