When Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen commissioned the Octopus to be built, it was supposed to be the biggest yacht in the world. Now it falls somewhere around ninth and tenth. We're sure he doesn't care: The Octopus has two helicopter pads (with actual helicopters), two swimming pools, two submarines, and a couple of jet skis. And although it was built in Europe, Paul had the interior done by Seattle's own Jonathan Quinn Barnett. America, fuck yeah!
