Microsoft (NYSE:MSFT) co-founder Paul Allen’s 414-ft Mega yacht Octopus is up for sale. It is on offer at $325.5-M. This is where A-listers partied, rock stars have recorded, and many adventures happened.
The yacht, launched in Y 2003, was “less a Bentley than a Range Rover,” Mr. Allen said. And like a Range Rover, the Octopus was designed to explore the world in luxury.
The yacht can accommodate 26 people in 13 guest cabins, along with 63 crew members in an additional 30 cabins. There are 2 elevators, a private deck for the owner with hot tub, bar and al fresco dining room, as well as 2 helipads, cinema, library, gym, basketball court and a glass-bottomed observation lounge, plus 2 submarines, and a recording studio.
Mr. Allen died last year from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In Y 1995 he bought a Boeing 757-200 and converted it into a luxurious private jet, which he later sold it to Donald Trump. He also had a collection Enzo era vintage and classic Ferraris and vintage warplanes housed in a large hangar.
Have a terrific weekend.
