Touted to be amongst one of the most well-known personalities in the world of technology, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s 303-foot superyacht Tatoosh is up for auction and listed on Fraser Yachts. Allen, who passed away in 2018, purchased the superyacht in 2001 for an estimated $100 million. Named Tatoosh, it’s considered the 60th largest superyacht in the world spanning 303 feet wide.
Priced at approximately $90 million, the larger-than-life superyacht was built by the German shipyard Nobiskrug. Custom-built, it is one of the finest superyachts with understated elegance, exceptional design aesthetics that fuses the modern designs with an old-world charm, and top-of-the-line amenities. State-of-the-art technology, innovative materials and the highest international safety standards make this one of the most luxurious and prized superyachts of the world. The interiors boast of an old-world charm with carefully curated pieces that exude character and finesse. Adding further to the aura is the use of carved woodwork, interspersed with marble accents.
With 11 staterooms — that can accommodate 19 guests — five decks, two helipads, a heated pool that can transform into a dance floor, a cinema, beach club, dive centre and elevators connecting every floor. You will never want to disembark from this luxurious haven.
Before being listed the ship also went through an extensive 11-month refit with interior design by Terence Disdale and an exterior design by Claus Kusch. The superyacht also offers a private space for the owner — the owner’s apartment that covers 2 decks with a comfortable observation lounge forward laid out with a private galley aft and a large secluded deck. However, the secluded deck that is furnished with contemporary pieces is the highlight.
Allen was the world’s 27th-richest man at the time of his death in 2018 and this was just one of his assets. Christie’s also announced that Allen’s billion-dollar art collection would be auctioned off, which includes 150 artworks spanning 500 years estimated at about $1 billion. Meanwhile, Allen’s other mega yacht, called Octopus was listed for rent in May.
