Kogo's first visit to Monaco was for the Grand Prix - not surprising since owner Mansour Ojjeh, who runs the multi-faceted TAG (techniques d'Avant-Garde) corporation,
also owns 30% of the McLaren Formula One team. The yacht has been reported as being named after his wife. But one reader has suggested that Kogo simply means "box of surprises" in Japanese.
Mr Ojjeh also owned the famous liner SS France for a few years.
