One of the world’s largest megayachts with a famed past can now be yours to charter for a week to Antarctica …

… as long as you have millions of dollars to spend and a lust for ultra luxury travel.

The Octopus, a 414-foot luxury megayacht, will be available to charter for trips around Europe, the Americas, and Antarctica beginning this summer with yacht firm Camper and Nicholsons.

The multimillion-dollar price tag may be hefty, but it’s no ordinary ship. The Octopus — one of the largest explorer yachts ever built — was previously owned by Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, Holly Overton reported for Boat International.

The Octopus’ most recent owner acquired the megaboat in 2021, Francesca Webster reported for Superyacht Times. And shortly after, it joined Camper and Nicholsons’ fleet for chartering opportunities.
