Burgess - Octopus - A Renowned World Class Cruiser
A renowned world-class cruiser and one of the most well-travelled yachts in the global fleet, the 414 foot OCTOPUS is the pinnacle explorer yacht for those seeking a proven ‘go anywhere, do anything’ platform for discovery. Encompassing eight decks and an interior volume of 9,932 GT, OCTOPUS offers an abundance of features and amenities specially tailored for those looking to explore the globe’s most remote and inaccessible destinations.
With accommodation for up to 26 guests in 13 cabins, and 63 crew across 30 cabins, OCTOPUS has been a trusted, full capability vehicle for discovery to those on board and has a range of accolades to prove it. Since delivery by Lürssen in 2003, to exteriors by Espen Oeino and interiors by Jonathan Quinn Barnett, she has explored the coast of Antarctica, traversed the Northwest Passage, recovered the ship’s bell from the wreck of HMS Hood at a depth of 1.7 miles for the Royal Navy and discovered the wreck of the WWII battleship IJN Musashi off the Philippines. With diesel-electric propulsion and eight generators for support, she is a pioneering vessel in both exploration and hybrid cruising. The submarine Pagoo can dive with eight guests and two crew for up to eight hours
Offering a genuine first class experience while cruising or at anchor, OCTOPUS has plenty of space for enjoyment and activity on board. With a full owner’s deck including a private bar and jacuzzi forward and private al fresco dining area aft, this deck provides the owner with a sanctuary of privacy and security. While the yacht has two elevators servicing the guest areas onboard, one is dedicated to the owner’s exclusive use for travel throughout the yacht with discretion and ease.
On the bridge deck below, guests have plenty of room for outdoor entertainment as a generous pool, the bottom of which can rise to become a dance floor, is located aft along with al fresco dining, a wet bar, BBQ, tandoor and pizza ovens. Just beneath the bridge deck is a deck dedicated solely to entertainment where guests can enjoy a range of facilities including a spa, library and bar, cinema, gym, multiple lounges including a forward facing observation area and a basketball court on the deck below. There is also a glass bottomed observation lounge in the tank deck.
In addition to seven tenders, two life rafts, an ROV capable of diving to1.9 miles and several jetskis, OCTOPUS is also capable of housing an SUV and two helicopters in the garage (one each for the fore and aft helipads), and its stern access marina is home to a 42.6 foot Hinckley Talaria tender and Pagoo, a submarine accommodating eight guests and two crew that can dive for up to eight hours. A dive centre and hyperbaric chamber are also on board, along with a beach club with a bar on the starboard side.
