Octopus is a member of Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue (AMVER), a voluntary search and rescue yachts system that can provide quick and easy assistance for anyone in need at sea. Octopus has assisted several operations in recent years, including an airborne and maritime search in the waters of Palau, Pacific Ocean, of missing policemen and their pilot. On the main deck there is also a hangar that can accommodate up to two helicopters, a large glass bottom pool and a 10-person submarine. The submarine and the main tender (called Man of War) float inside the yacht in a sort of central tunnel. On board there is also a music recording studio right on the main deck. Mr Allen’s cabin is in line with all the luxury that a yacht of this caliber can offer: an entire reserved deck, an outdoor bar with a Jacuzzi. The exterior layout was designed by Espen Øino Naval Architects, while the interior is by American designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett of Seattle.
