Octopussy; the very name sums up a James Bond image of a fast, opulent, audacious and dazzling vessel, coupled with a certain sexual innuendo.
This 143-foot super yacht has a history of ground-breaking speeds and attractive design features. In 1988, with the yacht’s lightweight aluminium hull and superstructure, she recorded a top speed of over 53 knots; that’s over 60 mph.
Now after a complete refit in 2015, she boasts a cruising speed of 25 knots in complete comfort and style. There’s a modern anti-roll stabilising mechanism installed to ensure a smooth and comfortable charter vacation and the designers have managed to limit the draft to an amazing 5-feet whereby shallow anchorages and bays can be accessed with ease.
Octopussy is equipped with an array of fun toys including a 32-foot Intrepid chase boat, water skis, wake boards, stand up paddle boards and a good selection of the latest fishing equipment. All this is in addition to the standard snorkelling gear, arranged scuba dives, floating mattresses, and inflatable rings.
A large swim platform and additional floating dock offer easy access to the water, tenders, and toys.
The interior and exterior styling is exceptional. The upper deck with dining options for 16 and a spacious seating and lounging area aft, offers outstanding panoramic views. The main salon with bar has multiple seating areas and a separate dining space with 310 degree vistas; the floor to ceiling glass doors open onto the main deck aft. The sundeck sports a Jacuzzi and is provided with warm towels, sun pads, and an awning, which may be removed at the request of sun worshippers.
The completely refurbished yacht has been fitted out in state of the art interior décor with vibrant colours, bold prints, and flexible accommodations to suit a variety of tastes and desires. The breakfast nook is intimate while exuding an early morning wake up ambiance. The bright colours give an airy feel enhanced by light and bright vistas from large windows. Similarly, the main salon is decorated with jazzy furnishings and fabrics; an ultra-modern feeling that Picasso himself would feel at home in.
The flexible cabin layout for up to 12 guests includes a full beam master suite with his and hers bathrooms and a walk-in wardrobe, two double guest rooms, and two twin rooms that can be converted to doubles along with two Pullman beds, ideal for children.
Professional styling, beautiful furnishings, and a bright and fresh feeling of modernity feature throughout to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. The stainless steel atrium staircase that runs from the lower guest cabins through the main salon to the sky lounge, reminds one of the titanic luxury of a bygone era, albeit modern and utilitarian in nature.
All modern amenities like WiFi and air conditioning are available throughout and a crew of up to seven are on hand to cater to your every need and desire, making your charter a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
