    Does anyone know where the 42m Diaship-Heesen built "Octopussy" that back in 1988 was the world's fastest private motor yacht at 53.17 kts?

    I was reading an article on Staluppi's new yacht "The World Is Not Enough" and when they mentioned the old "Octopussy" I remembered it hasn't been seen here in the Med since long time.

    Does anyone know where she is currently cruising, Carribeans probably...? :confused:

    Both Octopussy and Moonraker are located in South Florida. Moonraker is docked in Delray beach at a small marina along the intracoastal and Octopussy is located just north of there, along the intracoastal in Lantana/Lake Worth at a private residence. The last time I saw either one of them was a couple of months ago, so they may have moved now.

    "Moonraker" was seen here in Monaco during Summer 2004.

    As for "Octopussy", she was almost a resident of South France during the past years when she spent summer cruising the Med. Long time no see.... :)

    Does anyone have any "updated" photos of her as she is today? She had a major refit at Codecasa's Shipyard some years ago which totally chaged her stern and interiors but always kept her beautiful and unique inspite of its "1988" design!

    octopussy sighted again

    I just saw Octopussy near Boca Raton and Delray Beach along the intercoastal docked on the east side of the waterway in front of a private residence. The boat looks great and is well cared for. Blue, white and maybe some tan/beige in the trim. I should have stopped to take a photo but it suprised me and there wasn't really any place to pull over that was not private property.

    Moonraker had a sister "Victoria Won" which was home ported in Ft. Lauderdale. Is she still about?

    I saw Moonraker about 2 weeks ago at Sampson Cay, Exumas, Bahamas. She looked to be in very good condition and being enjoyed by her owner's or guests.

    I feel blessed to be able to sit in my living room or on my deck and watch them all come in and out here in Lucaya.

    I'll report as I see all the interesting ones!
