NEW CENTRAL LISTING – M/Y OCTOPUSRevolutionary in terms of concept, design and engineering, OCTOPUS defined global exploration cruising
One of the most well-traveled yachts in the world, it’s hard to overstate the impact of Octopus on contemporary yachting: in terms of capability versatility and vision, Octopus continues to outclass most, if not all, other large exploration yachts.
Octopus is equipped for extended cruising and exploration in extreme conditions. Built to Ice-class 1A and reaching max speed of 19kts, she has two helipads: one forward and one aft with access to a large helicopter garage for both. She carries seven various tenders including the 13.5m I 44ft custom Hinckley Talaria dive tender, an ROV and an array of water toys.
The hull design includes an integrated dock with lock doors at the stern. It separately houses a 60-foot submarine capable of carrying ten people as well as the Hinckley tender in its own 62’ garage. When the vessels are inboard, the water is pumped out providing a drydock facility.
Imposing at 9,932 GT, her twin domed mast making her instantly recognizable, Octopus can house 26 guests in 13 staterooms. The interior is designed by the Seattle based Jonathan Quinn Barnett and amenities include a large cinema and a recording studio with a specially-designed floor to damp out the low-frequency noise and vibration, a private observation lounge above the owner’s deck, a beach club, pool, gym, and spa with hammam and sauna.
In superb condition having concluded an 8-month refit at Blohm+Voss including her 15-year class surveys, Octopus remains the benchmark for adventure and exploration yachting.

NEW CENTRAL LISTING - SCOUT IIPurpose-built exploration yacht: long range, huge volumes and fresh from a multi-million dollar refit
Delivered in 1993 by the historic British shipyard Brooke Yachts, and built to a tough specification, SCOUT is one of the first purpose-built exploration yachts, pre-dating the current trend by over 25 years.
Impeccably maintained by her three owners (all keen and experienced yachtsmen) SCOUT II has always been privately used and has a proven track record as a successful global cruiser. With a massive beam of 9.2m (just over 30ft) she is remarkably stable and seaworthy and has a 4.000 nm range.
During the last three years the current owner undertook an extensive, multi-million dollar upgrade and refit at two US shipyards. The projects included a 5m extension aft and a 1m extension forward and the installation of a new mast. The bow was reshaped, all key machinery and systems were replaced or remanufactured, including zero speed stabilizers, new generators and air conditioning. All work was detailed and photographed throughout and approved by Lloyds. At 397 Gross Tons, SCOUT II is unrivalled in her class in terms of volume, performance, deck space and versatility.

Designed by Terence Disdale, SCOUT II offers a high degree of privacy with crew and guest areas cleverly separated. The understated elegant interior is finished in limed teak, blues and white, in true yacht style.

IMPORTATION OF US BUILT TENDERSNo silver bullet but a range of options
Like US built yachts, US built tenders are subject to 25% import tariffs when entering the EU. Depending on the registration, they can be imported under different customs schemes.
To summarize, a “tender to” follows the same rules as the mothership which, if commercial and imported into the EU before 22 June 2018, can be re-imported under the Return Good Relief (RGR) scheme and operate as before.
If privately registered, a yacht can be imported under Temporary Admission (TA). In this case, once in EU waters, no EU guests may use the yacht or tender/s if the owner isn’t onboard.
A private yacht under TA may also charter, if it engages in the YET scheme. However, no EU residents may use the vessel or tender during the charter.
Things are slightly different for US built tenders with their own registration. These can be imported under the RGR scheme, if they qualify, or TA if they do not.
So what happens if the mothership qualifies for the RGR scheme and the tender doesn’t? The tender can be imported under TA. This entails an oral declaration (form Annex 71-01) which must also mention its association to the mothership.
As well as, the oral declaration, the mothership’s charter contract must state:
- the tender's registration number and use;
- that the tender is attached exclusively to the mothership;
- that the tender is used for "shuttle operations", between the mothership and embarkation/ disembarkation dock;
- that the tender is used only for short journeys which the mothership cannot undertake (navigation in shallow waters, for instance).
In the last case, EU residents might be allowed to use the tender during the charter under certain conditions. However, we are waiting to see how Customs defines ‘user’ before clarifying further.
Non-EU residents can use tenders without any restrictions, even without a charter contract in place since it is imported under TA.
