OCTOPUS superyacht

Launched in 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 following qualities:

- Plank-on-frame (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 another.
- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.
- >99% of parts are wood and metal. 


56" long x 13" wide x 24" tall   $7,500    S & H is $220
