What’s On Board: Octopus

In the ‘What’s On Board’ series, we’ve seen some pretty amazing yachts. But when it comes to electronics, gadgets, etc, Paul Allen’s Octopus is probably the one to beat. He is the co-founder of Microsoft and therefore, besides rich, pretty tech savvy we might assume… Although I can’t find many specifics, I’m sure you’ll get a feeling of it when you read one of the many articles on this new mega-yacht. For some additional pictures (and speculation) have a look at the Power & Motoryacht Forum.
“But guests reported that the boat was over the top — even by billionaire-yacht standards. Details include: teak floors, a theater and basketball court, two helicopter pads and a sound-mixing studio large enough, guests were told, to produce a major motion picture. For times when Mr. Allen feels like roughing it, the yacht ports a 60-foot yacht and eventually will boast a 10-person submarine that will run on fuel cells so it can stay under water for as long as two weeks.”
