Bang for your buck: Following her recent sale in 2021, Octopus is available to charter for the first time since her delivery to the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2003. At 126 metres, Octopus is one of the largest superyachts in the world so has plenty of space on board for amenities. She’s well equipped for exploration, with two helipads and a hangar, storage for up to eight tenders, an ROV, Triton submarines and a fully-equipped dive centre. Across her eight decks Octopus also boasts a glass-bottomed underwater observation lounge, a cinema, a heated fresh water swimming pool and multiple Jacuzzis, bars and al fresco entertaining areas.
Where to find her: As an explorer-capable yacht with an ice-classed hull and cruising range of 12,500 nautical miles, Octopus offers a range of destinations for adventurous charterers to discover. This summer she will be cruising around central America and the Pacific before heading to cooler climes in Antarctica for the winter.
