As reported by the guardian here, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s 126m mega yacht Octopus has reportedly discovered the wreck of the Japanese battleship Musashi. The Japanese Navy’s biggest warship was found at the bottom of the sea in the Philippines, 70 years after US forces sank it.

Luxury expedition motor yacht Octopus, also fitted with an exploration submarine, is said to have found the Musashi on Monday, March 2, 2015. The battleship was one kilometer deep on the floor of the Sibuyan Sea, where American warplanes sank it on October 24, 1944.
