Super yacht wows locals at Ballard Locks

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on September 3rd, 2014


According to the Puget Sound Business Journal, yet another super yacht passed through Ballard locks on Tuesday afternoon.

The 235-foot Kogo, owned by French/Saudi Arabian billionaire Mansour Ojjeh, was in our ‘hood only a few days after the super yacht “A” left through Ballard Locks en route to California.

The Kogo (pictured above) reportedly passed through the locks at about 3.45 p.m. on Tuesday bound for Nautical Landing in Lake Union where it is to be repaired and reprovisioned for a few weeks.

Before sailing through the Ballard Locks, Kogo had spent a few months in British Columbia. According to the report, Kogo is one of the largest private luxury yachts in the world and can be chartered for about $551,000 a week, plus expenses.

Kogo is French-built and houses seven staterooms, a dance floor, steam room, an indoor Jacuzzi dip pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, outdoor movie theater, full gym, a swimming pool and a crew of 21. According to the report, Kogo’s owner Ojjeh has bee involved in Formula One racing and heads the Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG), which is involved in agricultural, real estate and hospitality industries.
