A renowned world-class cruiser and one of the most well-travelled yachts in the global fleet, the 126m (414ft) OCTOPUS is the pinnacle explorer yacht for those seeking a proven platform to view some of the globe’s most remote and inaccessible locations.

With accommodation for up to 26 guests in 13 cabins, and 63 crew across 30 cabins, OCTOPUS has been a trusted, full-capability vehicle for discovery to those on board and has a range of accolades to prove it. Since delivery by Lürssen at HDW Kiel in 2003, to exteriors by Espen Oeino and interiors by Jonathan Quinn Barnett, she has explored the coast of Antarctica, traversed the Northwest Passage and recovered the ship's bell from the wreck of the HMS Hood at a depth of 2.8km for the Royal Navy. Another notable finding includes the discovery of the wreck of the WWII battleship IJN Musashi off the Philippines.

Offering a genuine first-class experience while cruising or at anchor, OCTOPUS has plenty of space for enjoyment and activity on board. With a full owner’s deck including a private bar, jacuzzi, and al fresco dining area, this deck provides the owner with a sanctuary of privacy and security. While the yacht has two elevators servicing the guest areas, one is dedicated to the owner’s exclusive use for travel throughout the yacht with discretion and ease.

On the bridge deck below, guests have plenty of room for outdoor entertainment as a pool is located aft along with al fresco dining, a bar and pizza oven. Just beneath the bridge deck is a deck dedicated to entertainment where guests can enjoy a range of facilities including a spa, library and bar, cinema, gym, multiple lounges including a forward-facing observation area and a basketball court on the deck below.

In addition to seven tenders, two liferafts, and an ROV, OCTOPUS is capable of housing an SUV and two helicopters in the garage, and her stern-access dock is home to a Pagoo, a submarine accommodating eight guests and two crew that can dive for up to eight hours. A dive centre and hyperbaric chamber are also on board, along with a beach club with bar.

Autonomous in every respect, the yacht's hybrid propulsion system gives her a maximum speed of 19kn and a transoceanic range of approximately 12,500nm at her economical speed of 12.5kn.

Well maintained throughout ownership, OCTOPUS has undergone an extensive maintenance period every five years, with her most recent refit completed in 2019.
