New look for iconic Heesen superyacht Octopussy


Named after the James Bond movie, the 43.58 metre all aluminium iconic superyacht Octopussy (ex: Octopussy 007) was built by the Dutch shipyard Heesen in 1988. When she was first launched, she broke the records in regards to speed, with a top speed of 53.17 knots she was at that time the fastest superyacht in the world.

In 1996 Octopussy went to the Italian Codecasa shipyard, where she was lengthened and restyled, and several more refits followed at different yards around the world. Her latest refit however, may be her most extensive yet, and was only recently completed.

Virtually none of Octopussy was left untouched, from mechanicals, to fresh generators, air conditioning systems, a back-to-bare aluminium interior re-do, plus the addition on an entirely new and extended sundeck.

As seen on the most recent photographs, her new interior by Jeff Lincoln Interiors from New York are bright and bold, utilising a colour scheme of blues and whites throughout all furniture to create a unique ambiance with a hint of a nautical theme, and matching the dark blue hull.

After completing her refit and coming out of it looking like a completely new yacht, Octopussy is now available for both sale and charter , with Merle Wood & Associates
