126M Lürssen superyacht OCTOPUS rejoins yacht charter fleet following nine-month refit

By Katie Scott   9 July 2024

Following a highly secretive nine-month refit in Bremerhaven, Germany, 414ft (126m) superyacht charter OCTOPUS is rejoining the market with bookings already open for a highly indulgent globetrotting world tour over the next few seasons.

Delivered in 2003, Lürssen charter yacht OCTOPUS is among the most expensive charter yachts on the market with a 13-cabin layout for up to 12 sleeping charter guests and a dedicated crew of 45.

Completing her 20-year survey, as well as a full paint job and AV/IT upgrades, OCTOPUS' latest refit, following on from her gym and interior upgrades in 2021, remains largely under wraps but she's already been spotted heading down the River Weser as she returns to the yacht charter fleet.

Boasting striking exterior designs penned by Espen Øino International, OCTOPUS currently ranks second in the largest yachts for charter, behind 446.2ft (136m) superyacht charter FLYING FOX, and features every luxury and splendor needed for truly indulgent escapes to both hot and cold climates.

As soon as charter guests step onboard they are greeted with a staggering outdoor living environment with a large swimming pool and full cocktail bar, multiple alfresco lounge and dining areas, a spacious beach club and swim platform plus a helipad for high-flying adventures during corporate or family yacht charters.
