1
The Worlds Largest Privately Owned Yacht
Octopus
In 2003, the launch of Paul Allen's 127m (416ft)
"Octopus" secured its number one position as the
world's largest yacht. Microsoft's "accidental
billionaire" Paul Allen - worth US20 billion
according to Forbes, the third richest man in
America and 7th in the world - owns two other
monsters yachts such as Tatoosh ranked 3rd in the
World in 2003. Octopus cost Allen over US200
million and has Permanent crew of 60, including
several former Navy Seals. It has two
helicopters, seven boats, a 10 man submarine and
a remote controlled vehicle for crawling on the
Ocean floor. The submarine has the capacity to
sleep eight for up to two weeks underwater. On
average, owners must spend a minimum of 10
percent of the purchase price every year to keep
these yachts in good working condition and cover
crew salaries. Therefore Octopus which cost
Allen US200 million requires a US20 million
annual budget.
