Superyacht OCTOPUS

📅 August 2021 Update: 🚢 Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen’s maritime legacy, the illustrious 414-foot superyacht “Octopus,” a vessel last valiantly priced at 235 million euros ($278 million), has gracefully transitioned into the hands of a discreet new owner.

🚀 OCTOPUS: A Symphony of Luxury at Sea: Commissioned in 2003 by Lurssen Yachts, the grandeur of Octopus transcends the ordinary, standing as a maritime masterpiece. Imposing with a steel hull, an aluminum superstructure, a beam stretching 21 meters (68.90ft), and a draft of 5.66 meters (18.57ft), Octopus proudly adheres to the highest standards set by MCA and LR.

🚢 A Glimpse Inside OCTOPUS:

  • Motor Yacht Octopus: A colossus stretching 126.20 meters (414.04ft) across the seas, showcasing bespoke elegance.
  • Interior Opulence: Crafted by the skilled hands of Jonathan Quinn Barnett, Octopus underwent a transformative refit in 2008, ensuring its interiors remained a beacon of refined luxury.
  • Performance + Capabilities: A cruising speed of 17 knots, a maximum speed of 20 knots, and an astonishing range of 8000 nautical miles fueled by its voluminous 850,000-liter tanks.
  • Magnificent Accommodation: Octopus warmly hosts up to 26 guests in 41 suites, while its crew of 57 ensures a seamless and indulgent yachting experience.

🌐 Superyacht OCTOPUS: A Panoramic Overview: Having undergone a recent conversion into a private yacht, Octopus unfurls a tapestry of luxury previously owned by the late Paul Allen. The vessel, equipped with two helicopters, an array of tenders, and watercraft, transforms each voyage into an opulent escapade. From a remotely operated submarine facilitating oceanic exploration to an upper-deck pool offering a celestial retreat, Octopus redefines opulence on the high seas.

🚢 Design Brilliance and Maritime Marvel: Minds behind the design brilliance include Lurssen and Espen Oeino, while the interior grandeur bears the signature of Jonathan Quinn Barnett Ltd / Sam Sorgiovanni. Launched in Germany in 2003, Octopus underwent a comprehensive refit in 2008, ensuring it remains at the forefront of nautical elegance. A steel hull and predominantly aluminum superstructure contribute to its imposing size, featuring a beam that stretches majestically across 21 meters.

🔧 M/Y OCTOPUS Engineering & Speeds: Octopus harnesses the power of eight MERCEDE diesel engines, propelling it at a swift maximum limit of 20 knots. With a total output of 19,200 HP (or 14,320 kilowatts), this maritime giant maneuvers gracefully with twin screw propellers. The yacht’s dynamic cruising speed of 17 knots allows for an impressive range of 8000 nautical miles.
