It takes a particular net worth to buy your first superyacht, but it’s an entirely different level of wealth when you’ve got more than one in the marina. Paul Allen, the late co-founder of Microsoft, was a man with that kind of money, and his second superyacht the Tatoosh has just come up for sale with a price tag of around $135 million.
When he passed away in late 2018, Paul Allen was the world’s 27th-richest man with an estimated net worth of $38 billion, seeing him own both the 92.4-meter Tatoosh and his larger 126-metre superyacht Octopus that was sold last year for more than $400 million. As his estate is slowly sold off, the Tatoosh has come to market, following the recent announcement of more than 150 pieces from his art collection to be sold at auction, which could fetch the best part of $1.4 billion.
The 22-year-old Tatoosh has come up for sale after an extensive set of upgrades were installed over the last year, with inspections of the superyacht taking place at the Monaco Yacht Show later this month. Boasting five separate decks, a pair of helipads and room enough for 19 guests across 11 cabins, the Tatoosh was originally built by the German shipyard Nobiskrug and represents the crème de la crème of superyacht luxury.
If lounging on a deck overlooking the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean doesn’t excite you, the vessel also features a heated jet pool that transforms into a dance floor, a cinema, a dive centre and even a beauty salon. It also has bulletproof and triple-laminated glass windows, so you’ll be able to really relax while you’re onboard.
Named after a wilderness area near Allen’s lifelong hometown of Seattle, the Tatoosh has a range of 6,855 nautical miles with full tanks, while still offering a rapid clip top speed of 16 knots. So if you’ve been thinking of a new superyacht to break in over the northern hemisphere’s winter, the Paul Allen Tatoosh is currently listed for sale by Burgess and Fraser.
