Paul Allen Yacht Party, Cannes, 23 May 2014

Overview

Octopus is a 414 foot (126 m) megayacht owned by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft. Delivered in 2003, it was believed to be the biggest such yacht at the time of its construction.[1] It is currently the world’s 14th largest superyacht, the fifth largest superyacht not owned by a head of state, and the largest expedition yacht.

Octopus sports two helicopters[1] on the top deck (one in front and one on the back), and a 63-foot (19 m) tender docked in the transom. There are a total of seven tenders aboard. The yacht also has a pool, located aft on one of her upper decks, and two submarines (one of them operated by remote control for studying the bottom of the ocean). Side hatches at the water line form a dock for jet skis.

The exterior was designed by Espen Øino Naval Architects and built by the German shipbuilders Lürssen in Bremen and HDW in Kiel. The interior was by designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett of Seattle.
