A superyacht that belonged to late Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen has hit the market for 295 million euros, or about $325 million, yacht brokerage Burgess told Business Insider.
The 414-foot yacht, Octopus, has eight decks, an elevator, a cinema, two helipads, and a glass-bottomed underwater observation lounge. Allen reportedly paid about $200 million to have the superyacht built by Lürssen. It was officially launched in 2003.
Allen was known for hosting star-studded parties on his yacht during the Cannes International Film Festival in France. Guests have reportedly included George Lucas, Mick Jagger, Karlie Kloss, and Chloe Sevigny.
Take a look at Allen's superyacht and the places it's cruised, from Cannes and London to Argentina and Hong Kong.
Paul Allen's superyacht, Octopus, has hit the market for 295 million euros, or about $325 million.
The 414-foot yacht, which was built in 2003 and refitted in 2019, has some truly lavish amenities spread out over its eight decks.
On its dedicated owner's deck, Octopus has a private elevator, a private bar, a hot tub, and an al fresco dining area.
The superyacht has plenty of room for toys. Octopus comes with two helipads and storage space for seven tenders, two submersibles, and a large SUV.
Octopus is "one of the most well-traveled yachts in the global fleet," according to Burgess.
The superyacht has been spotted all over the world, from the coast of Turkey ...
... to London, England ...
... to Hong Kong ...
... to southern Argentina.
Allen was known for throwing star-studded parties on board Octopus during the Cannes International Film Festival in France.
At the Bollywood-themed party in 2015, dancers performed musical dance numbers for the guests.
For the "A Midsummer Night's Dream" party the next year, the yacht was transformed into an enchanted garden.
Guests were given flower crowns and the vessel was decked out with floral arrangements and illuminated trees.
While performers were always brought on board, Allen was known to get onstage himself and rock out to some Led Zeppelin.
Allen's $325 million superyacht is among several sizable assets that have been put up for sale by the late billionaire's estate since his death.
