Octopussy - P342
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Heesen to a design by Gerhard Gilgenast, Octopussy was commissioned by American entrepreneur John Staluppi with the aim of breaking through the 50-knot barrier. Delivered in 1988, she fulfilled his aim by topping out at 53.17 knots, becoming the fastest superyacht in the world. Octopussy was later refitted and lengthened with the consequence being that her extra weight saw her drop from the ranks of the world’s fastest motor yachts.
Octopussy won the title: Fastest megayacht in the World. From May 1988 until January 1992. The record speed was 53.17 knots.
In 1996 the hull of Octopussy was lengthened with approx. 3m (10') to create garage for the tender.
On the lengthened main deck a circular dining room with panoramic view was added, whilst salon and galley were enlarged.
The sun deck was also lengthened to fit a large sunbathing area with Jacuzzi. In May 1996 the new "blue-hulled" Octopussy was launched.
Octopussy offers accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 suites comprising 1 owner cabin, 3 double cabins, 1 twin cabin. She is also capable of carrying up to 6 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
