When we talk about yachts and we hear the name Octopus, we all know of what kind of yacht the discussion is about. And we are not talking about any yacht. What hides under the name Octopus? We are talking about the ninth largest yacht in the world and it is in the ownership of the famous cofounder of Microsoft, yes, we are talking about the billionaire, Paul Allen. He purchased this superyacht in 2003 and it is the largest superyacht in the world which we can say is a private property, not owned by the state.

Since the exterior design of this superyacht comes to question, it has been the work of Espen Oeino Naval Architects, which is easy to notice since every little bit of the structure is designed carefully to the tiniest little detail. Since the built of the exterior comes to question, it was in the hands of Lürssen (a company for building ships in Bremen) and HDW (a shipbuilding company from Kiel). Since you take a better look at the exterior built, you will see that it incorporates German discipline, preciseness and flawlessness. Since the interior design comes to question, it is the proud work of Jonathan Quinn Barnett, an expert in designing all sorts of interiors, coming from Seattle. As a matter of fact, here you can easily notice the refined taste of a person from Seattle, because since interior design comes to question, Seattlers and New Yorkers are the hardest to please.
