Video: Heesen Reveals How it Built the World's Fastest Yacht Octopussy

Heesen Yachts has revealed how it collaborated with John Staluppi and Frank Mulder to build the fastest yacht in the world in a new documentary.

The newly released documentary named Octopussy: The Yacht That Couldn’t be Built offers behind the scenes insight into how the ground-breaking feat was achieved.

Compiling interviews with John Staluppi, Frank Mulder and Frans Heesen of Heesen Yachts, the documentary tells the story of the iconic 43.68 yacht Octopussy, which reached a record breaking 53.17 knots in 1988 and put the Dutch yard on the map for good.

Watch the documentary below.
