Luxury Octopus Yacht is one of the world’s largest yachts. She is built by Lurssen Yachts. Octopus Yacht was owned by the billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

Octopus features a helicopter pad and garage aft and can also accept a second helicopter on the bows. Her impressive deck also features a glass-bottom swimming pool which can transform into a dancefloor with a nearby bar for drinks served poolside.

Another novel facility of her design is her internal dock, which, opening from her transom, runs forward through the yacht, allowing a 20-meter submarine and a tender of a similar size to float into their storage positions. Once secured, the water is pumped out, leaving them resting on chocks.

The yacht has a permanent berth in the International Yacht Club Marina in Antibes, where her owner acquired the largest dock by buying the 55.78-meter superyacht Hanse together with its berth – he kept the berth and immediately sold Hanse, which has now been renamed Insignia.
