Octopus video online I A whole new perspectiveThe most complex and forward-thinking yacht ever built

The 126m Octopus is a feat of imagination and engineering. Still as ground-breaking today as when she was delivered in 2003, there is simply no other comparable yacht in the global fleet. She was built for long-range exploration and research and is uniquely fit for purpose. 

Being equipped with two heli-pads and an aft hangar which houses two large helicopters and the refuelling facilities, she functions as a proper heliport during navigation.

The scope of sea operations is equally articulated. Octopus carries an array of tenders including a Hinckley chase boat, a limousine capable of 30kns, two 9m inflatables plus a large number of smaller craft. The Hinckley is stored in the integrated dock together with a 10-person submersible. Unmanned underwater operations are carried out by the ROV which can operate at depths of 3000m, stream video to the ROV control room on board and collect marine samples with a robotic arm.

Her exterior styling and naval architecture is by Espen Oino while the interiors are designed by the Seattle-based Jonathan Quinn Barnett who looked to Mid-century luxury ocean liners and Art Deco design for inspiration.

Octopus will be spending the winter in the Mediterranean. For an appointment, contact Stuart Larsen at stuart.larsen@fraseryachts.com or +1 954 328 6553. Please note that Octopus is not offered for sale to US residents while in US waters.
