$280M Superyacht Tour | Octopus | the 126m Legendary Lürssen Explorer Yacht that set a new standard
The iconic explorer superyacht from Lürssen.
Probably the greatest Tender Garage of them all! In addition to seven tenders, two liferafts, and an remotely operated submersible vehicle, Octopus is capable of housing an SUV and two helicopters in the garage. Her floodable stern-access dock is home to a Pagoo, a submarine accommodating eight guests and two crew that can dive for up to eight hours. There’s a glass bottomed underwater observation lounge, a dive centre a hyperbaric chamber on board, along with a beach club with bar, of course 😉
Octopus is perhaps one of the best known explorers on the water. The 126 metre Lürssen hit the water in 2003, commissioned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, and was designed for far-flung global adventures. She has two helipads on board, one fore and one aft, with a hangar that can store two aircraft. Since her delivery, Octopus has explored the coast of Antarctica, traversed the Northwest Passage and discovered the wrecks of long-lost WW2 battleships off the Philippines.
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.
