The renowned Octopus yacht sold earlier this week, an iconic Lürssen explorer yacht measuring 126.2 meters. Camper & Nicholsons recently added her to its charter fleet after she was listed by Fraser & Burgess. She will be chartered for the first time since her launch in January 2022, following winter at the yard. Her owner will offer guests the chance to travel the world with her for two years.
According to the last known information, Octopus had an asking price of €235,000,000.
The German shipyard Lürssen built the superyacht Octopus in 2003. Having been designed by Espen Øino, she was hailed as the first superyacht of its kind, a true ocean explorer with a 12,500 nautical mile range when she was launched. Even today, she remains the world’s largest explorer superyacht.
As one might expect, Octopus has it all, including two helicopters, which have a dedicated hangar on deck, a float-in tender bag at her stern accomodating a 1.9-mile range ROV, and a Hinckley tender called Man of War II.
In addition, she carries a Pagoo submarine that can accommodate up to eight guests and two crew members for up to eight hours. Scuba diving enthusiasts can also use the hyperbaric chamber at Octopus’ dive center. In addition to the large pool, there is an endless number of dining, lounging, and sunbathing spots on the deck, a place to enjoy every aspect of life onboard.
The 26 guests onboard this yacht enjoy unparalleled privacy as they enjoy the luxury spread across her eight decks. Over the years, the details of the superyacht’s interior have remained extremely private, though a glimpse of them was captured in a video about the vessel released in 2019, shortly after she went on the market.
She has been extremely well cared for over the years, undergoing extensive maintenance every five years to ensure she is always in pristine condition. Blohm+Voss completed the most recent refurbishment in 2019.
