An Espen Oeino and Jonathan Quinn Barnett designed world explorer, the 126-metre Octopus was built in 2003 at Lürssen. The proven luxury expedition yacht has travelled to remote locations in all four corners of the globe and is currently the most expensive yacht for sale at €295,000,000

Beside her lies the 112.8-metre motor yacht Le Grand Bleu, built at Bremer Vulkan in 2000. One of the largest yachts in the world at the time of her launch 20 years ago, she features naval architecture by Kusch Yachts and exterior design and general arrangement by Stefano Pastrovich, while Bannenberg & Rowell Design were responsible for part of her interiors.
