I talked with this guard, all he would say was " an American businessman owns this. I'm just doing my job but look at this thing it's amazing." Some people on the Disney cruise said it was Michael Jordan's, so I ask him. He snickered, 'no Micheal isn't this rich.


Octopus, currently the world's seventh largest superyacht, is owned by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, to whom it was delivered in 2003. Octopus is the second largest superyacht that is not owned by a head of state, measuring 414 feet (126.18 meters).


Octopus sports two helicopters on the top deck (one in front and one on the back), and a sixty-three foot (19 m) tender docked in the transom (one of seven aboard). The yacht also has a pool on board, located aft on one of her upper decks, and two submarines: one operated by remote control for studying the bottom of the ocean. Side hatches at the water line form a dock for jet skis.
