2003, the 127m (416ft) Octopus was the world's
number one largest yacht. Currently, she is
the fifth largest superyacht not owned by a head of
state, and the largest expedition yacht.
Octopus cost Paul Allen--co-founder of Microsoft over US$200 million.
She 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.
Octopus needs a US$20 million annual budget and a
crew of 60, including several former Navy Seals.
Like all of our
superyacht models, this Octopus model has the
(very important), hollow hull construction, weighing less than 20 lbs
(A solid hull of this model would be over 80 lbs,
requiring more than 2 people to handle and a
fortified table to accommodate.)
- The hollow superstructure is comprised of many
individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not
several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one
- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to
the hollow structures.
- >99% of parts are wood and metal.
