World renowned designer and naval architect, Espen Øino, envisaged her striking exterior with a blue and white hull and superstructure, featuring two helipads and a hangar to aft. Once on board, the interior designs of Jonathan Quinn Barnett come to life and encompass facilities such as a spa, library, bar, cinema, gym, multiple lounges, a fore-facing observation area, a basketball court and a glass-bottomed observation lounge in the tank deck. Octopus is one of the largest and most spectacular examples of a full-fledged leisure and exploration vessel. She has travelled to remote locations in all four corners of the globe and is currently the world’s most expensive yacht for sale at €235,000,000.
