Named the Octopus, the renowned world-class cruiser is one of the most well-traveled and largest yachts in the world. Sitting at a whopping 414 feet, maybe it should be called the Kraken! The Octopus is an explorer, having gone to some of the globe’s most remote locations. The superyacht was once famously owned by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who took it around the world and used it for everything from parties with the A-list to marine research expeditions. Yachts aren’t just for extravagant parties. The Octopus has done her fair share of discovery and exploration, including finding the wreck of the WWII battleship IJN Musashi off the Philippines.
A full-fledged beast for exploration and entertainment
The Octopus is a full-capacity yacht, and has accommodations for up to 26 guests in 13 cabins and 63 crew in 30 cabins. There’s also plenty of space for activities and entertainment onboard the eight-deck ship. The dedicated owner’s deck features a private bar, jacuzzi, and al fresco dining area. The owner can enjoy privacy and discretion on the Octopus, including a private elevator. It’s a great first-class experience to enjoy out at sea or anchored at the dock.
The bridge deck below houses outdoor entertainment for guests. Guests can relax in the pool and enjoy al fresco dining, a bar, and a pizza oven. Below the bridge deck is an even more robust range of entertainment facilities, including a spa, library, yet another bar, cinema, and gym. Guests can also shoot some hoops at the basketball court on the deck below. There are also multiple lounges and a forward-facing observation area. A glass-bottomed underwater observation lounge just really puts the Octopus in a whole different league.
When you need to give your sea legs a break, the yacht’s garage has you covered, with space for an SUV and two helicopters. Additionally, for more water adventures, the Octopus also has room for an ROV in the garage and a Pagoo, a submarine for eight guests and two crew for deep dives, in her stern-access dock. The yacht also has seven tenders and two liferafts. The Octopus has undergone maintenance every five years and was recently refitted in 2019. Buy Here
