Paul Allen’s 414′ $325M Superyacht Has Its Own Submarine & Cinema

It’s not going to come as a surprise to find out that Paul Allen, the late co-founder of Microsoft, was insanely rich. After all, he did own the Portland Trailblazers, a collection of lavish residences across the nation, and an expedition-style superyacht called the Octopus. It’s the latter that concerns us today, as that vessel is now up for sale.

Measuring in at a whopping 414 feet in length, the Octopus is less a yacht and more a floating city with room for 26+ guests and 60 crewmen across eight decks and 13 cabins. But that’s only the start of things. This opulent ship also has its own basketball court, movie theater, gym, spa, deck pool, dual helipads, a glass-bottom observation deck, and even its own submarine. And that’s not even everything it has to offer. There’s a pretty major catch, however, in that the Octopus will cost interested parties a whopping $325,000,000 to purchase it plus $17,000,000 in yearly operational costs.

Purchase: $325,000,000
