I was two or three years old at this time :). She was the world’s fastest yacht with a top speed of 53.17 knots! I think this yacht would be perfect for Portrait (Spotlight on).
If you combine a fast luxury yacht with a James Bond film title, you are right. Built for the well-known Mr. John Staluppi who brought us the most interesting motor yachts :)
She is powered by three MTU diesel engines with KaMeWa water jet propulsion. Each engine has a power of 3.432 hp, so Octopussy has a total power of 10.296 hp. Well, this yacht is still impressive but of course not environmental friendly. Octopussy has a fuel consumption of 32 liters per minute!
The German newspaper FAZ talked in 2007 to her current owner and wrote a nice article about her.
